Principles Minimalist WordPress Blog

Principles - A content first WordPress theme.

A great mobile site is one where all the excess is taken away. Anything that is unnecessary is removed. The content is the priority and navigation is paramount. If that’s the case for mobile, why are we not doing the same with our websites? Why all the excess? What would happen if we took everything away? How would it feel just to read again, without distraction? A place where only the content matters. A place where only the reader matters. Our answer to this question is ‘Principles’, a minimalist blog without the unnecessary extras. A place where great bloggers can blog again and interested readers can read again.  Minimal WordPress themes are a great way to get the point across because they don’t have a lot of extra junk frying around getting in the way of your reader.

If you don’t see something perfect for your needs, there are always WordPress theme frameworks available to help construct a theme that’s completely unique and perfectly fits the look and feel of the site you want to build.

Ones that I have personally used, and recommend, are:

Catalyst Theme Review by ThemePop – Even no coding experience, you can use Catalyst theme to build your own fully-functional and completely unique looking WordPress site from the ground up.   Perfect for really differentiating your site from any other WordPress site on the web.  Probably has the largest and best support community.

Genesis Framework Review by ThemePop  – The Genesis Framework lets you quickly and easily build incredible websites with WordPress.  Genesis sets itself apart by having no ‘developer license’ which means you get great support and unlimited features at a VERY reasonable price.  Also, probably the best security of any theme framework.

Pagelines Framework Review by ThemePop  – Use PageLines Drag & Drop Framework and WordPress to build professional websites faster, easier and better than ever before.  Pagelines has probably the best forum integration, so it’s great for building an online community with WordPress.
