This is the ugly duckling of my WordPress themes, designed to be simple, clean, fast, and easy to read. It has two columns, sized specifically to accept standard ad formats. It’s widget ready, but there are no included plugins to complicate things. It’s a good starting point for modifications. If you’re looking for something more stylish, check out one of my other themes.
