I initially changed my theme at the beginning of the course because I hated the bland white background that WordPress defaults to, but today I changed it because I felt like I needed to play with the features. I don’t remember if the default had columns, but anyway, I decided to choose a layout that had two columns, which worked out nicely with my widgets. It’s more user-friendly because of the fact that, I feel, it is more visually-pleasing to the viewer and the text is a brighter color, making it more easy to read.
