This blog looks as good as it does because it uses the Basic Maths theme developed by Khoi Vinh of Subtraction and Allan Cole of fthrwght. Allan is a Brooklyn-based hv(y)wght in the design community and Khoi is the Design Director for NYTimes.com. Khoi also runs a site called Mister President. If anything looks out of place, it is because I am just beginning to grasp the basic concepts of HTML and CSS. Lucky for me that Khoi and Allan teamed up to produce a Wordpress theme that I absolutely love. It has a very clean look with an underlying grid that gives it a very strong foundation. It's so easy to use, even a "noob" like me can figure it out.
Thank you Khoi and Allan for making me look so elegant.
