You can reblog a WordPress.com post to your own site by using the reblog button.
The colors and typography of a reblogged post vary from theme to theme, but the overall layout remains fairly consistent. I updated the look and feel of reblogs to be cleaner and easier to read. You can check out a “before” shot if you’d like to compare 🙂
Kelly, which was designed by Automattic’s own Kelly Hoffman, is an inviting, fun theme for bloggers of all stripes. Its clean, one-column layout makes it perfect for text-heavy posts, but can be just as ideal for a tumblelog-like stream of images.
With bold featured images, the ability to customize the header and the background, and three widget areas in the site’s footer, you can make it your own with just a few quick tweaks. Here are some examples of the theme’s versatility.
Curated Style, a Toronto-centered fashion blog, makes great use of Kelly‘s out-of-the-box look. The theme’s cursive font in the header injects a stylish playfulness, while the generous white space in the posts makes the images of Toronto’s fashion scene stand out.
The blogger behind Curated Style effortlessly added a few personal touches, like a patterned custom header image, a splash of bright pink in the custom background, and an easy-to-navigate
Media management is done within the editor and was designed with that contextual nature in mind. You can add, edit, reorder, align, caption, resize, and remove photos and galleries without ever leaving the editor.
A whole new way to create posts and pages. We had only recently launched an “interim editor” when we got to work redesigning a new one from the ground up. It was the last piece of the Calypso puzzle and it is my favorite thing I’ve ever had the pleasure of designing. (More screenshots and info coming)
I left Moab and drove back up to Park City to hang out with 400 of my coworkers for the week.
I co-worked with people I don’t normally get to work with, went on some epic mountain bike rides, used a selfie stick for the first time, jammed in the band room, tried crossfit, and danced to the Jane Doze. It really was the best time. Great end to an amazing road trip.

We also had a too much fun in the photo booth, celebrating Automattic’s 10 year anniversary.
We stayed in Utah for that night and drove to SLC the next morning to drop my dad off at the airport. Although I was less than 20 miles away from where I needed to be on Monday, it was only Saturday. Moab was calling my name so I drove the four hours to my friend’s house for some mountain biking and down time.
My dad and I redid a 1987 VW Vanagon last year. We (well, mostly he) did quite a bit on it and continues to be a work in progress. He was itching to go on another road trip and I had to be in Utah for work. I think you can guess what happened next.
He started driving from CT to my place in Chicago. He stayed the night and we got up on Sunday, said goodbye to Emi and hit the open road.
We knew we wanted to see Jackson Hole and Yellowstone and he had a flight out of SLC on Saturday, but other than that we didn’t have much of a plan. This is my favorite way to travel and well, to live. To have just enough of an idea of where you are going and things you want to accomplish while leaving plenty of room for “things” to happen.

It’s normal to go on a road trip with your dad when you’re 31, ya?
My dad woke up early and started driving. I laid in bed for a while. Perks of van living.
