Despite the five new awesome themes, the one thing that fascinates me the most are Kirk’s “TV Room glasses”.

Love these new themes. I don’t sent to change mine yet, but lots to choose from when I do.

I like them all. I have tried both Bushwick and Syntax and settled on the latter which is a beautifully elegant minimalist theme that I’m now using on my personal blog.
I would like to mention the importance of us WordPress.com bloggers being able to include a tagline in all themes, and the fact that some themes do not have that field or have it but the display has been suppressed in our theme versions.
As this is a mutiuser blogging platform and we bloggers cannot access meta data we cannot enter meta descriptions. Granted they aren’t required for SEO but when we do use a blog that provides tagline display and we keep the site title and tagline are under 70 characters Google does display them in the SERPs( search engine page results). That is why I am requesting that our Themes Staff ought to consider including tagline display in every theme they bring online for us users.
Thanks, in advance, for your consideration and for all you do for us to insure we have gorgeous themes to showcase our content in.

If i had to choose one of these themes i should definetely go for the mcKinley theme. A clean theme for any type of future project.

I immediately switched to Bushwick as soon as I saw it, what a wicked theme!!!

I was window shopping through the theme showcase on the 1st of January and saw Bushwick… Although I had recently changed my main theme to Twenty Fourteen I loved the look of Bushwick and knew I’d finally found my “happy place” theme. I immediately switched. I love the clean, streamlined look of this theme but also love that it has a “look at me” boldness too.
Thanks for some awesome themes WordPress!
Now please lead us not into theme change temptation again with more awesome themes.

Seems like a fantastic theme !
Will spend a little more time examining how it would gel with my future posts before switching though.
Great work ! Thanks

Bushwick is a wonderful theme, I’d love to have it. But it seems the menu does not appear properly in mobile mode

I have a writing blog using the Chateau Theme, which I like and don’t even experiment with enough. Bushwick caught my eye, as I plan a new professional blog. The vertical banner appeals, as does the auto “excerpt/quote” function.
Can you change fonts and font colors in Bushwick without upgrading ?
Is there any way to view other’s blogs using this theme ? There aren’t any samples linked to its page.
