New theme: Sparkling

Ever since I tried out the ‘Svblte’ (clone) theme, I’ve used ‘Spun’. This stayed in place longer than I’d anticipated (mainly through apathy). In reflection, this occurred as a holding mechanism: it was good enough for the time being; I’d get around to finalising a choice later. I hadn’t really spent much time blogging of late and it seemed good enough during the 60 seconds I spent evaluating it at the time. Cut to the present: I had time and spent it evaluating the current themes available for WordPress. I saw “Sparkling” and it resonated with me. I installed and activated it. Fin. 🙂
