WordPress 2.8. Looking for a new theme.

I like the new theme and widget controls in the all-new WP 2.8!  But my old theme didn’t play very well with it.  It was a freebie off the web anyway.  So I am now in the search for a new theme, and would appreciate any help in this direction.

Several months ago I contacted a custom designer, and gagged at the 2 to 3 THOUSAND dollar pricetag!  since then, I have found another in the 4 to 5 HUNDRED dollar range, but that is still more than I want to spend on a personal blog.

Themeforest has other options, not entirely unique, but almost, in the 15 to 25 dollar range. Now we’re talkin’!  But still, I would love something that says “Ferd!”

I’ll keep looking, but would appreciate any ideas.

I need a Theme that says “Me”

Okay, I figured out how to use WP themes.  I got rid of the ugly/generic/nauseating one and you are looking at “SkyFire.”  It’s alright, but not really what I want.  Too dark.  I’ll have to see where I can find other themes, preferably for free, but not necessarily. I’ve seen many custon themes that I really like, and I’ll probably go in that direction.

BTW, I’m posting from a computer at work!  Cool! All of 5 minutes to post, if that.  That’s a LOT faster than with my oldy but goody iWeb.
