I started with a theme called Start as this was a basic theme that I could use as a base. I decided to create something that was different to other blogs that are currently around and thought about sectioning the various areas of the blog. This, together with the green colouring, creates a clean, crisp look which leads the visitor's eyes to the main content without too much distraction from the surrounding content. The use of shadows on the sections also helps with distinguishing between the areas of the blog with the articles appearing further from the background, and the sidebars, header and comments section being less prominent.
