Hi I run my own website. I built it all myself using Wordpress. I have slightly modified a free theme (just tweaking the CSS to get it to look the way I want). However, I feel it is not really sexy enough. But, I cannot work out what (or how) to change to make it a lot better. It is a article based website, 2 columns. So my thinking is that all that is needed really to make it look lots better is a snazzy looking header area and sidebar. Maybe some tweaks to content layout, fonts, colours etc. too. I have been looking at many site for inspiration but always left confused! I am not a designer. I have thought about getting a professional design done do far not seen a company who specialises in Wordpress and will not make silly changes that will ruin my navigation and architecture - it is vital that this all remains untouched. This is my website. I have been looking at sites like these, hoping for inspiration, but still not sure the direction to take. These are all mostly news / magazine sites, some really basic looking actually: Celebrity Gossip, Fashion Trends, Hair & Beauty Tips (Glamour.com UK) Latest news, sport and comment from the Guardian | The Guardian ABC.net.au Telegraph.co.uk - Telegraph online, Daily Telegraph, Sunday Telegraph - Telegraph See, I want simple, clean, with a little style. But my attempts to get there seem to be failing ... Many thanks, look forward to your opinions.
