A fellow blogger friend of mine, I found uses one of your themes. As I have been madly searching for a nice, feminine, easily customizable, non spam sponsored theme I fell in love with LIfestyle. That was right after Album lept off the page at me for my photography site. My plan is to purchase both of these themes. But. I've always been taught to ask before I buy so here goes.
Has anyone used Lifestyle for a non business personal blog? If so, I'd love to see how it looks, mind showing off?
If you use this theme as a complete "noob" to coding(I've used WP for years but never dug too deep in the customizations), is it really that easy to customize? Example: I'd like my blog entries to be the main page content, with the awesome sidebars, and maybe a feature photo rather than the magazine look, at least for a while. I'd also be wanting to change the header, and maybe the entry background colors at some point.
The sidebars: Are they widgets out of the box? or a sidebar.php file? I really like them as is, however I don't use ads, but would probably still use the blocks. Are they easy to configure and change between 1, 2, and 3 sidebars?
