    I sort of decided that I disliked the way my other one was going. So I just used WordPress and a free theme.
    I really likes how it looks.
    Thoughts and opinions? Possible improvements?
    I also incorporated http://shovehost.com/ into it (simply a redirect to the Web Hosting page of shovenose.com...since they go together.

    Well, this is certainly one of the most popular Wordpress themes, so I'd say to improve you need to change it enough to gain some originality.

    What I'd recommend is taking the theme, turning it into a PSD and then coming up with some designs. Try starting with this (A zipped PSD file of your site). Play around and see what you can achieve and just make it look different from the Mystique theme.

    Well I want to learn how to create my own WordPress themes! That would be a helpful skill and could help me get lots of good backlinks and traffic (from footer links like BLAH BLAH BLAH theme by Shovenose.com) or something.

    I JUST ACCIDENTALLY DELETED THE WHOLE THING

    In any case, I guess that means I should learn to make my own theme. Lol.

    aha I saw the site and was thinking "really???? realllyyy????" Then I saw that you said you deleted it haha.

    I personally find that the strong point of Mystic is it's navigation and sidebar. So I would leave those intact and just change the header bg and footer. Maybe play around with fonts too.

    Just Do It! You've seen the commercial a 100 times, what are you waiting for? Design your own theme man...
    I have gotten into the habit of not judging other designers/developers work, but this is my Microsoft Meandering time so I'm MEANDERING...
