Do you have a WordPress blog that isn’t updated all that often? Perhaps you use WordPress as a content management system for your portfolio site, for example, and it makes more sense to highlight single items than it does to provide a reverse chronological listing of blog posts.
If that happens to be the case, you might want to try the Cold Water theme that was recently released. This theme has a minimalist design, featuring a small space for the blog title and a strip across the top for the main navigation. Below this is a single content area that is designed as a content slider. By taking this approach, the entire site can load without vertical scrolling on the part of the user.
Below the content area are three sidebars that can be customized to suit your needs. At default, they are used to access the archives (by month), view the full calendar, provide a search bar, and provide a brief “about” area. You can add and remove content from these areas as you see fit.
