WordPress.com Theme: The Journalist

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.

Check out all the details on the WordPress.com blog.

    Nice and clean is BloggingPro theme (that’s why I use it), but “The Journalist” is text on white background.

    This is a great looking theme. I’m strongly considering using it for my own site. Thanks for passing along the info!
