New Themes: Little Story, Scrollider Express, and Pachyderm

Howdy all! We have a bunch of awesome new themes for you today, so let’s dive right in.

Little Story

First up is Little Story, a premium theme with design elements and inspiration from the talented Laura Amiss.

Little Story supports several post formats in different styles, large featured images on Sticky posts, a mobile-friendly layout (including a collapsible footer widget area), social network icons for Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest, and an option to add author information after single posts. It’s the perfect choice for a design or craft blog, or for sharing your own stories and tales.

Next up is a clean, professional blog theme from the fine folks at WooThemes called Scrollider Express. This theme comes loaded with features including post formats, responsive layout, and featured images. Added to this is a unique header image design that spans the full width of the homepage and presents a bit of a surprise as you scroll down the screen.

Last but not least, we have Pachyderm, a free theme that supports all post formats, an optional widget area, and what theme wouldn’t be complete without a pink elephant? With its clean, playful design, it would be perfect for a baby or family blog, or for sharing your web finds on a tumblelog.

    I changed themes yesterday and after ten months of blogging it was my best day for attracting new followers! So my advice is to just go for it. If you think you’re writing great posts, that you’ve got your widgets and gadgets and About page all spot on but you still just have the regular contributors liking and commenting, take a look at anything that might be stagnating. Do you have too much going on in your sidebars? I’m a hoarder, so over ten months I’d grabbed all those nifty flag counters, badges, links, and got a lovely set of Blog Awards from fellow bloggers going on. Either sweep them clean, dedicate a page to them, or chose a theme were they are not cluttering up and distracting your readers from a long post. I don’t know what I was thinking,; I’d always have a tidy up if I invited someone into my home, so it’s worth thinking about the image you portray to the world you invite into your blog as well. It was definitely time for a Spring Clean. Freshen up your blogs and don’t be afraid of change! I feel a lot more invigorated and inspired to write on my blog again. I’ve picked a cleaner theme, but one that still has space for personalising, and my regular followers are giving me some great feedback and I don’t appear to have ruffled anyone’ feathers. If you’re still unsure, be brave and put it out there in a post and ask what people like and don’t like about your blog 🙂

    OK, don’t hate me, but I think Pachyderm has promise.  Look at the live demo of the theme to see how it handles different post types.  And it will show the full post by default, but lets us use the More tag if we want.  I don’t love the accent color.

    AnElephantCant hide his surprise
    This new theme is making him squirm
    He must ask the question
    Or suffer congestion
    Is there room here for two pink pachyderms?



    Nice, I’ll have to remember these when it’s time for a re-design for my site. Thanks.
