Welcome to Citizen Journal

Here at Citizen Journal we like to make good old fashioned blog themes. We don’t make app themes, portfolio themes, business themes or photoblog themes. Actually, we might make some photoblog themes, but otherwise we are focussed on regular old blogging style themes. You are free to use these for anything you like, but we created them with bloggers in mind and that’s what they are really suited to. We release most of our themes freely, but if you would like us to make you a custom blog theme to reflect your own personality we can do that too. Drop us a line.
