    Theme makes a lots of difference in your blogging journey. As i can see you are using thesis theme on this blog. no doubt thesis is a great theme but it needs a lots of customization. After such a large customization it fits on your requirement. If you are little bit aware of php html and css. Then i think you can develop your own great theme.
