I chose this template for several reasons, but my top three reasons where because to me it was colorful, unique, and simple. The first thing I noticed was the color, to me it was nice, calm colors that I thought best represented me with out really saying anything about me. The colors are not used all that often which get is into my next reason that I chose this template which was it's uniqueness. The color combination you do not see often now a days which to me makes it more desirable.
The last reason was simplicity, its looks very easy to navigate without looking old fashion. I think by having everything on the screen and not having to click something else to get there makes my blogging site easy and more comfortable to navigate though. A lot of site have put a lot of things together to make an amazing, one of a kind site, but they make it at the expense of the viewer who might have a hard time getting to where he/she wants to get to.
