After a month’s hiatus, Performancing is excited to bring you its latest wordpress theme, Estranged. Designed by Thord Hedengren the theme utilizes large, crisp fonts to create a simple yet eye-catching theme design.
As a two column theme, some people might be turned off by the presence of only one sidebar, but as a problogger, I can confirm that all of my most successful sites are actually single sidebar designs. Why is that? Because the best way to monetize a blog is to highlight the content, and then monetize within the content. Sidebar monetization is way oversold. Trust me.
On a personal note, I love this theme so much that I am already personally using Estranged on several of my blogs including Psych Grad School and plan to eventually modify it for use on College Startup, my home blog.
With a unique color scheme and big, bold font, the Estranged theme can literally work for any blogging environment. I personally like it in the college/education niche, but I know at least one person whose going to be using it for a left-leaning political blog and another whose going to use it for a health related blog. The fact is, the theme is perfect for any site that takes it’s content seriously.

Thank you for this great theme. I would like to add a header picture, can you help me to find out how to do this ?
The theme is really nice, but the the code is a mess. There’s a mix of ready-to-localize and unprepped strings. Did it ever occur to you, that people could want to use the theme for non-English blogs?

Isn’t Performancing about quality content? Well, you should start with quality here…
Brett, you’re going to taint with an artist’s work? How dare you;-)
Seriously, though, I plan to increase the font sizes!! I love the bigness.
I like the look of the theme, I’d decrease the font sizes if I used it myself, but I do like it.
It works better in IE7 than some of the other themes that we’ve seen here recently.
