Today we are introducing a clean and minimalist theme, Blogum.
Designed by WPShower, Blogum has a grid-based layout and is designed in a modern style. This very clean style allows your reader to precisely focus on your content.
Blogum has a widget area in the right sidebar. It also includes a full-width template to hide the sidebar. You are able to customize even more with a header image, background, and custom menu.
Blogum also supports three post formats, Aside, Image, and Gallery. Read all about Blogum’s features on the Theme Showcase.

The beauty of simple! Perharps I should try this theme
Jul 28th at 6:54 pm
Very nice. Cleanliness personified.
Jul 28th at 7:09 pm
Again, this one also is great… Good work!
Jul 28th at 7:46 pm
A very nice clean theme, though the type seems a bit small. I prefer more color, which is why I use Choco!
Jul 28th at 8:27 pm
Sleek and clean, I like this.
Jul 28th at 8:43 pm
Very clean and modern. Very cool.
Jul 28th at 8:53 pm
nice one , tidy , calm and elegant
you have a good taste
i like it
Jul 28th at 9:08 pm
Probably going to try this. Love it over all, but that Heading Six feature really nails it. Looks like just what I’ve always wanted for pull quotes.
Jul 28th at 9:15 pm
Hmm, I like that the columns aren’t in a normal pattern
Jul 28th at 9:30 pm
Oh that is nice and tidy
Jul 28th at 9:41 pm
Neat. I liked it from the very beginning. The option I lacked earlier was thet the photos I add are the same width each. This makes it even more tidy and well-organised. I’ll sure be using it for a looooooong time. Thanks for it. It’s exactly what I needed.
Jul 28th at 9:54 pm
I like it, I might switch when I get bored with this layout.
Jul 28th at 10:05 pm
Cool, a new theme each day. That’s a win!
Jul 28th at 10:50 pm
Just the theme I have been waiting for, and I have tried many. Simple, clean lines, and best of all it didn’t delete all my post photos; I have many photos and to lose them in the changeover would have been a nightmare. Therefore, smooth transition for me and I love the modern-look cloud widgets!
Jul 28th at 10:53 pm
Perfect for a site owner
Jul 28th at 11:28 pm
Jul 28th at 11:50 pm
sweet! it’s free.
that’s always a plus.
Jul 29th at 12:15 am
I love you, WordPress, but it took you guys long enough to publish some good minimalist themese. THANK YOU.
Jul 29th at 12:17 am
I’m a fan of minimalist themes and this one is very appealing. It also has some nice features as well that are very useful. I like the a nice styling feature for Heading Six. Thanks for introducing it.
Jul 29th at 12:19 am
I like it but I think I’ll stick to my current theme. Thanks for coming up with new themes
Jul 29th at 1:21 am
Crisp and clean theme…very nice.
Jul 29th at 1:29 am
Nice and clean. Keep up the great work!
Jul 29th at 2:08 am
Simple and clean. But I prefer Chateau.
Jul 29th at 2:28 am
Beautiful layout. Good job!
Jul 29th at 2:32 am
Thank you WordPress for all the minimalist themes.
Jul 29th at 2:45 am
I personally like this theme. With a white background it is clean and simple. I think it is important that a site isn’t too cluttered and places emphasis on the content.
Jul 29th at 3:13 am
Jul 29th at 3:30 am
Very nice! I’ll use it.
Jul 29th at 4:02 am
I always appreciate the team for releasing new themes. Keep up the good work.
Jul 29th at 4:17 am
Clean and organised. Reminds me of laundry starch in a good way
Jul 29th at 5:13 am
wow – another free theme. Look like wordpress.com like to introduce free/paid theme alternately…
Jul 29th at 5:20 am
The theme is clean and very nice. I would like a background color in the header though
Jul 29th at 5:46 am
Thanks for this new theme. I like its name.
Jul 29th at 6:01 am
Image-wise this is one very well-behaved theme!
Jul 29th at 6:30 am
Jul 29th at 6:47 am
WPShower is very elegant, I love all of their themes, blogum included, simple for a not so troubling blogging experience.
Jul 29th at 7:35 am
Love the look of this clean & simple but intelligent. I am on Coraline just now. Is it easy to switch? Should I take it off line to do so?
Jul 29th at 8:35 am
simple and nice <3 I like it
Jul 29th at 8:53 am
How interesting theme is.So cool!
Jul 29th at 9:08 am
Very nice !!
Jul 29th at 10:02 am
Like a superb stage for the coolest ballet
Jul 29th at 10:29 am
What a clean theme! Nice work…
Jul 29th at 11:00 am
These days, there are a lot of better themas for almost every weeks and always change my theme and confused which one I should choose.. Can you stop creating new please? Thanks for amazing theme WordPress !
Jul 29th at 11:07 am
Nice work ! Nice theme !
Jul 29th at 11:14 am
Jul 29th at 11:25 am
This is the kind of theme that I like: clean, minimalistic and stylish.
I like the tag feature!
Jul 29th at 12:27 pm
I am going to try it
Jul 29th at 12:31 pm
Nice one, Takashi – the first theme I thought about switching to in a while. The font integrates nicely.
Instead of a white background, I wonder how a light grey would look?
Jul 29th at 1:00 pm
Very nice! Every time WordPress comes out with a new theme, it’s like getting an early Christmas present.
Jul 29th at 1:03 pm
Good .. worth trying
Jul 29th at 1:32 pm
Minimalist, simple yet formal. Allows the reader to concentrate on every entry a blogger posts…
Jul 29th at 1:36 pm
Great new theme! I love how the font is bold! Easier for me to see!
Jul 29th at 2:18 pm
Absolutely love the possibility to use marginalia with . Any change this feature will be available in older themes? Like “Manifest”, for example?
Jul 29th at 2:51 pm
I like this theme – very simple and classic!
Jul 29th at 3:02 pm
Nice and clean! Now, what to do with it? -John
Jul 29th at 3:13 pm
Nice work, once again! Great layout and easy to read posts.
Jul 29th at 5:07 pm
Nice Theme…. thanks..
Jul 30th at 12:31 am
Good job It’s pretty.
Jul 30th at 1:20 am
Theme Team for introducing this new minimalist and clean theme! Might consider it in the future. Keep them coming!
Jul 30th at 4:06 am
Admittedly, I’ve been very frustrated with the latest WP themes, however this one is just lovely. I’m not going to switch because I’m in love with my current layout, however much kudos to the designer here, and kudos to you, WP! I agree with several others above me in that I appreciate your minimalist themes… I feel that what would be uber helpful at this point is more customization for each individual existing theme…but I’m getting away from my compliment here – good job!
Jul 30th at 5:48 am
That does look very nice indeed.
Jul 30th at 7:03 am
Jul 30th at 9:42 am
Looks classy and clean!
Jul 30th at 10:20 am
Jul 30th at 11:48 am
This theme looks great indeed. I am sure people will be able to use it to enhance the creativity in the blogs.
Jul 30th at 3:07 pm
This is nice. The uncluttered look of each page does make your text stand out more.
Jul 30th at 3:34 pm
Nice! Everything looks really compact. Nice work.
Jul 30th at 8:30 pm
Nice I guess, but I think there are several quite similar “whiteandblack” themes out there already. Good with so many new themes though!
Jul 30th at 9:51 pm
I love this theme; I’m using it right now, and it’s already one of my favorites!
Jul 31st at 3:06 am
Nice, but I really wish you had a nice theme with drop-down category boxes at the top as well as a custom header — I seem to have to select one or the other!
Jul 31st at 4:47 am
Cool theme. I will switch to this theme on next month.
Jul 31st at 8:17 am
Wow..cool. I love it
Jul 31st at 8:09 pm
Love it! :0)
Jul 31st at 9:42 pm
Thanks you guys!
Aug 1st at 6:40 am

Aug 1st at 6:55 pm
Very nice but I like more colours and more functions. Your idea is welcome.
Aug 1st at 11:02 pm
Really clean, I may try it when I get home and have some time to play.
Aug 2nd at 3:36 am

Crisp as a winter’s day.

Aug 10th at 8:28 am
Sorry I just realised the pages appear at the top instead… guess not! Thanks though for this briliant, clean site.
