Magazine Themes Suck

I swear, it’s getting ridiculous! I was looking for a new theme to use for one of our sites, and ALL I could find were these damn magazine-style themes.. I personally blame John Chow (and Unique Blog Designs) for making this blog style so popular!!

Seriously though, while it may be aesthetically pleasing at first glance, they’re actually a pain in the ass to nagivate through – Especially if you want to read multiple posts. (Click, Read Story, Click Back, Scroll Down, Click, Read Story, and Repeat)

What happened to the original blog layouts? Shoemoney and Tyler Cruz both have themes that are easy to navigate, while still “ad-friendly”. I wish theme designers would see that there’s still a demand for these types of layouts, and people will eventually get tired of these magazine layouts.

Until then, the site in question will just be getting a mild facelift.. 😀
