    The theme is the least of your problems, the content is awful, barely readable.

    The content look crammed inside each other, try making your homepage more cleaner and easy on the eye.

    The tall/narrow thin-gliyph / outline font is extremely difficult to read, a situation only exacerbated by the use of fixed metric (aka pixel scaled) fonts. I dive for the zoom the layout doesn't properly adjust meaning it also has pixel based/broken responsiveneness. Basically the moment you say someting like "font-size:16px" you've screwed the pooch in terms of ACTUAL design. (as opposed to art masquerading as design)... which with broken inaccessible thin-glyph fonts like raleway or dosis you're talling users on high dpi displays, or with visual impairments to go plow themselves.

    Said thin glyphs also drag the color #3D3D3D far, FAR below accessibility minimums thanks to how font-smoothing is handled on everything exceept IE. Even on white, the sub-pixel aliasing is dragging the bars on things like your painfully tiny datelines all the way up to #949494 or higher.

    Similarly your back to top button is utterly illegible; white on #C7C7C7 is an epic /fail/ at the basic principles of colour contrasts as laid out by the WCAG.

    Similarly the page has no alternative navigation due to gibberish to nonexistent use of numbered headings, but that's a code issue. With it being slopped out in turdpress Of COURSE it's a bloated, slow loading, train wreck laundry list of how NOT to build a website; and ACTUAL design suffers as a result. Much less the slow load making the page itself so painful I hate to think what your bounce rate is.

    But then most people seem to think that art is all that design is. It isn't.

    S
    So do you think I need to change the design of the blog? You are right bounce rate is high and that's an issue for me? Any suggestion would be highly appreciated.
