I think Pinterest themes will be the new trend for blogger in 2013. Tks!
This is very great! We accomplished two tasks with the reading of one blog! My wife and I both have been looking for new themes for our websites. As a Pinterest fanatic, my wife went crazy when I showed her this. She has plans to use the Grido theme – she loves the colors and rounded edges. I am more drawn to the Shaken Grid myself. I prefer the way the posts line up and the fonts. We both are grateful for the info on this one.
Hi Thomas, I’m so glad to hear that you found what you were looking for. Best of luck with both your websites, I hope you will enjoy your new themes 🙂
Combining such a Pinterest theme with the WooCommerce plugin would be a nice solution to sell prints….
