football tournaments

This is an example of a standard post format.

Inspiration is a spark. A flash of light. Ignition. But without the proper mixture of oxygen and fuel, inspiration both lives and dies in the same instant. My life, my experiences, my research; these things are fertile soil for the great blog posts hidden within me. I carry them always and they are present when I sit down to do my work.

But all too often, it’s a struggle. The raw material is there, but the inspiration is not. The oxygen is abundant, but the fuel is scarce. And I’m left wondering, “How?”

How do I harvest? How do I sift and pan? How do I mine the caverns within me for intellectual and emotional gems? How do I… write?

Or perhaps a better question is, how do you? Yes, you, my kindred blog reader. Surely, you are similar. Surely, you’ve wrestled the Great Muse down to the dusty earth, and won.

I know this: it starts before I sit down to type. Great posts begin with significant life challenges. With weighty problems to solve. With an urgent need or a mature discontent with the way things are today. Yes, I think all great posts begin before words are written.

So get up, reader. Walk away from your keyboard, and live.

Only then can you give life… to words.

    Did you notice different sidebars on different pages? With that option i can have right content at right place, I will be gutted if i was forced to display same sidebars on all pages. I must say the small but important things were taken cared of nicely in this theme.

      Yes, different sidebars on different pages is sensible. But did you notice this comment form below? It lets me enter my comment first and then the formalities like asking my name, email address, etc comes. It sound like a small thing but see how it affects the psyche of your readers who uses that form to post a comment.

    The smartest element on the website is the tabbed widget in the sidebar which displays popular posts, latest posts and tags, on post detail page you can also display Related posts in that same widget. It helps me showcase posts with different filters and because they are in tabs it helps me save a lot of verticaly space in the sidebar. Smartly done i must say!

      The sidebar of this theme is so prominent that it is the best place to show advertisement banners, if you plan to monetize your blog with different advertisement banners, WP Premium is the WordPress theme you should go for.

    Along with the text content, media content like images and vidoes are also presented beautifully with this theme, i can have images in my post the way i want it and it just looks awesome.

      I just love the author profile section in the sidebar, that allows me to write about myself and it helps me personally connect with my readers, also the section with all my social media profile links is also strategically placed and beautifully designed.

    This seems like a cool looking WordPress theme for starting a personal blog, the focus is on the content and i am loving the typography of the blog. Readability is what bloggers look for and in my opinion this WP Premium theme is a perfect match.
