Greetings inmates!

I hope you are all having a great day! I have quite a strange subject today, in that i’m not entirely sure what point i’m trying to make with it. I fear this post is going to be something of a ramble from me. Awfully sorry about that. Haha!

WorldofHarley has been going for a good few months now and i’m really quite proud of the blogs progress so far (Thanks entirely to my wonderful inmate followers). I’m actually coming up to 70 posts now, amazingly. I’m enjoying it immensely and i’d like to think that i’m entertaining people and, with any luck, making them think too. I’m profoundly happy with the reception the WordPress community has given to my work so far. have far more to give though, i promise you that!

However, that is not what i was actually going to talk about today. You see, i was looking at my blog earlier on and something irks me slightly. I can’t really stand the theme i’m using any more. I don’t feel it strictly feels right more. It looks more “street” than “insane”. I want something that fits my crazy and dark style. I’m not sure if I’ve just gotten bored of the appearance or my intentions about the blog have changed. Perhaps i saw someone with the same theme? I forget to be honest. Anyway this is all besides the point. The point i am trying to make is i feel that i need a change. I need a new theme.

I’m not entirely sure what i’m looking for either. Something with the same functionality as my current theme, just with a different look. I want something dark, not necessarily black. Something with clowns, monsters, Tim Burton-esque characters and jesters. Something that has a sort of “insane asylum” aesthetic to it. Something that is, simply put, very Harlequin-like. Anyone who has seen my Harlequin photos on the blog may have a vague idea of what i’m going for.

I also want to include my blogs tag line: “Fun for the whole asylum!”. I feel it represents what this blog is about rather well. Something like this perhaps, albeit far more well made. This simply took me 5 minutes on Microsoft Paint. Anyone who reads my blog knows i’m not exactly a visual artist.

Not very artistic, but i like the idea.

Basically, i’m calling out to the greater WordPress community and my own Inmates for help here. Help me find or create a new theme for WorldofHarley. ¬†Any advice would be graciously accepted, even if it is only information on how to go about creating a theme myself. Assist this inept clown, before he sheds a tear…

Have a very crazy day inmates!
