In early days blogs were supposed to be simply online diaries and way how to write your thoughts without any business purpose. I will start to write personal blog in my own language as well and that’s because I wanted to find out how many simple and minimalistic themes are available for WordPress. Certainly I got again more than expected, but I tried to narrow article and be picky, but I still got 43 interesting and simplistic themes.
Enjoy typography, white color, grid, white spaces and remember – very often simply good typography and great use of white space is a lot better than theme overloaded with effects, colors, images and too much CSS styling!
Tons of good themes here, and most are perfect for building an amazing site. Use these themes as the structure for your WordPress blog, then add elements for color. Simple and free!

Every now and again we take a look around, select “fresh” high-quality free fonts and present them to you in a brief overview. The choice is enormous, so the time you need to find them is usually the time you should be investing in your current projects. We search for them and we find them, so you don’t have to.
In this selection we’re glad to present you Madawaska ExtraLight, Apparatus SIL, League Gothic, Contra and many other high-quality free fonts. Please read the license agreements carefully before using the fonts — the license can change from time to time.
Anytime Smashing Magazine makes it a list, you just know it's outstanding, and this font list doesn't disappoint. I'm a font junkie, but I have never seen most of the fonts on the list. If you're a designer, or do anything with fonts, you'll want to bookmark this post. Our favorite is Contra (probably more for the name than anything else).

LinkedIn (LinkedIn), which recently reached the 50 million user milestone, has long been considered the social networking site for professionals. If you’re in business, it is basically expected that you have a profile there.
But with the more mainstream platforms like Twitter (Twitter) and Facebook (Facebook) being used for business purposes, some professionals are neglecting their LinkedIn profiles. While LinkedIn is certainly not as dynamic as other social media sites, it still provides a lot of value — if you use it correctly. So whether you’re new to LinkedIn or a veteran, here are some of the things you should consider incorporating into your LinkedIn strategy.
I'll admit...I'm on LinkedIn, but I've never given it much more time than just setting up my profile, and looking around to see what was going on. This is is strong, but it's not exactly LinkedIn specific. Well, it is, but it's the same type of list you'd see for setting up any social profile. The good thing is, it's for a site that doesn't seem to get the attention the heavy hitters do, so it's worth a read.

So, after seeing a countless amount of positive reviews, playing around with it a bit on a friend’s PC or at the store, perhaps trying out the Beta and RC, and simply hearing your geek friends talking amongst each other about 7, you finally decided to make the switch. Whether you’re upgrading a current system, or purchasing a new PC, there are a few things you can do to spruce up your experience and make it even better.
I use a Mac Pro as my desktop, but I have a small Sony laptop that I'd like to upgrade from XP to Windows 7, so I've been doing a ton of research. This list is a great place to start after installing Windows 7, so if you've already upgraded, or you plan to do so soon, make sure you bookmark this list, and spend some time making use of it.

To grow money, you have to know money. And to know money, you need to study it: Its movements, who’s making it (and why), who takes it away, how to keep it, and how to grow your personal stash.
Unless you’re a child prodigy like Warren Buffett, or you have a trust fund
, this stuff doesn’t come on its own. It takes years of learning and experience. And what better way to learn than to throw on a podcast in the car, at the gym, or in another convenient setting?
We compiled this list of audio resources to make you richer. Even a weekly listen will boost your moneymaking IQ. See which of these valuable podcasts suits you best:
I've been searching for new podcasts lately, and I'll admit, I have seen the podcasts listed here, but have never subscribed to them. I took the time this morning to listen to each of these, and to my surprise, they're all very good. Top notch list!

Two days before the 2009-2010 NBA season begins, we pay tribute to the guys who still make it out of bed, despite the aching bones and other age induced pains and troubles. Oh right, I forgot they get millions for playing Basketball, that’s always a good reason. But being durable is worthy of being admired, especially after so much time in the league – so here they are, the 10 oldest players in the NBA.
I included this because it's just a really interesting list. I was actually surprised by many of the players on the list. Even if you're not a basketball fan, there's a good chance you'll find this list worthwhile. Check it out.
