The one thing that I probably hate the most about starting over with my blog is the way it looks – or actually, it’s the entire process of figuring out how I want it to look.
I’m very anal when it comes to my blog so I usually spend hours and lose quite a significant amount of sleep over something as seemingly shallow as editing my blog’s theme. But hey, in this day and age, we all know how much importance people put on appearances so I guess me going absolute gaga over this makes complete sense in a way.
But that’s not really the point of this post. All I actually wanted was to air out my frustration over something even more trivial — a retired premium theme.
So you’re probably like, WHAT THE FUCK??? Okay, chill out and let me explain.
I mentioned on my previous post that I’ve been meaning to go premium for a while now. You’re probably aware that WordPress offers a Personal plan (this is a link so just click to find out more) which is a whole lot cheaper but your girl was leaning more on the Premium one.
Why, you ask?
Simple — the abundance of premium themes that comes along with it.
For months I keep coming back and staring at this one premium theme that just looks soooo amazing. It’s simple, it’s elegant, it’s sleek, it’s minimal — in short, everything that I want. In fact, I want it so much that I even thought about purchasing it separately a handful of times and retaining my Free plan or upgrading my blog to a Personal plan.
So believe me when I say that I was super excited to get to finally use and install it. But alas, bitch has retired.
First of all, I did not know that themes retire. And second, WHYYYYY!!! I was just looking at that theme back in December and now it’s gone???
Now, the frustration actually and truly begins because my mind was so set on that one theme that I didn’t even bother thinking about the possibility of it no longer being available. Now, I’m just annoyed. I’m actually just straying away from the thought of purchasing it separately because fuck, that’s another 1k++ pesos. Ugh…. the struggle is truly real on this one.
Can I live without it, though? Of course I can. Do I want to, now that I’ve spent thousands on upgrading to a Premium Plan? Absolutely not. Will I be a big baby about this whole situation? Oh yes, you bet your skinny ass I will be.
If you’re curious though, here’s the theme I’m bitching about. You’re welcome.
DISCLAIMER: I know this is a very trivial issue and just in case it wasn’t obvious enough, this whole thing is basically an exaggeration of what I truly feel. I’m not actually and literally bitching and moaning about a fucking WordPress theme, just so we’re all clear.
