Post Format: Standard
This is an example of a standard post format.
Inspiration is a spark. A flash of light. Ignition. But without the proper mixture of oxygen and fuel, inspiration both lives and dies in the same instant. My life, my experiences, my research; these things are fertile soil for the great blog posts hidden within me. I carry them always and they are present when I sit down to do my work.
But all too often, it’s a struggle. The raw material is there, but the inspiration is not. The oxygen is abundant, but the fuel is scarce. And I’m left wondering, “How?”
How do I harvest? How do I sift and pan? How do I mine the caverns within me for intellectual and emotional gems? How do I… write?
Or perhaps a better question is, how do you? Yes, you, my kindred blog reader. Surely, you are similar. Surely, you’ve wrestled the Great Muse down to the dusty earth, and won.
I know this: it starts before I sit down to type. Great posts begin with significant life challenges. With weighty problems to solve. With an urgent need or a mature discontent with the way things are today. Yes, I think all great posts begin before words are written.
So get up, reader. Walk away from your keyboard, and live.
Only then can you give life… to words.

You can use this page to test the Theme’s handling of the
shortcode, including the
columns parameter, from 1 to 10 columns. Themes are only required to support the default setting (3 columns), so this page is entirely optional.
Post Format: Aside
We fundamentally believe that our customers are more interested in a simple, attractive, and functional WordPress theme than they are having 12 color schemes to choose from, and a fancy slider with 8 transition effects.
If you pick out a WordPress theme like you pick out drapes, you’re doing something wrong.

John: Where is the rest of the team? I’ve been here since 3:00am.
Tom: Umm… We actually sleep. Go back to bed, dude.
Tom: Fine. But if I show up, I am not wearing pants.

VideoPress, especially as a video post format, usually provides some unique styling issues.
You will need to install Jetpack or Slim Jetpack plugin to turn the shortcode into a viewable video.
