If words are your thing, Memoir is your Tumblr-inspired theme. Sometimes the writing needs to do the talking. And this theme puts your writing front and center. When clean and clear writing is on a simple white page, it can be very enlightening and eye-opening.

If the words are good enough, you don’t need anything more than crisp whiteness behind it.

Some color options are available; but they are limited on purpose. Who wants to read fluorescent pink words on blue paper? The lack of color options here are actually a good thing. The less color, the more serious the material is supposed to be taken.

This is not to say that you can’t have comical or creative writing through a WordPress page. Of course not. But some specific writing simply needs to be presented in the most benign manner possible – so it can garner the greatest amount of respect and attention.

Why you should check it out:

  • Light and dark are the color options

  • You can change the color options whenever you need to

  • Mobile-friendly layout options that help you size your page for easy viewing

  • Easily interactive buttons and pages – intuitive design

  • Language translation capabilities

  • Widgets can be installed
