    These wordpress themes are pretty awesome and useful. My suggestion was to spice up these themes by giving advantages for each theme at the botton

    Very, very cool, and stylish, but this just occurred to me – if you are a graphic designer (or any kind of designer, really) then wouldn’t you want your blog to be totally unique, and a reflection of your personality? So, then… how do you do that with a template? (This is actually a serious question. How DO you customise a template, or incorporate a photoshop mock-up into one? Or is there a great dividing gap, between those who can design a theme from scratch, and those who use the templates, and there is no halfway point in between? Hmm…)
