This free WordPress theme has loads of options for customization! Through the Theme Customizer*, you can add your own header, background image or color, change the link color to match, and even add an ad or signature to show up under each post. I’ve intentionally not “over-designed” this theme to allow for your own personal style to shine through.
There are multiple widget areas, including one above the header, sidebar and 3 footer widget areas.
*the Theme Customizer can be found on the Appearance/Themes screen at the top next to the theme screenshot. There are more options to be found on the Header and Background admin screens under Appearance.
