I’m always looking for designing resources to make my wordpress themes better and stand out more then others out there and i have infact tried and incorporated a different view of a weblog in every one of my themes.

The only way to make the content stand out more is to have it on a plain white background with a detailed pattern as the page background, alot of weblogs have done this and most of the time the pattern goes un-noticed even though the readers don’t always realize why it is that they are drawn to the content more.

Here are 3 great resources for bg patterns.
