It has been over two weeks since the last theme was added to WordPress.com, and it seems that people wanted something a bit brighter, and so WordPress.com users can rejoice as The Journalist is added.
The Journalist features a fixed-width, two-column layout, elegant typography for post text and block quotes, and supports widgets in the right-hand sidebar. Look for it on page 4 of your Presentation / Themes tab (under “T” for “The”).
Seems like many comments so far think the theme is boring, and with the limited customization options I can see how they would think that is the case. Does that mean themes that lean more towards frameworks won’t work on WordPress.com? I guess we will have to wait and see. I, for one, think The Journalist looks nice and clean.
