Vertigo Red is a great theme, available in both a 2-column and a 3-column version.
For the uninformed, “2-column” means the theme has a content column and a sidebar. “3-column” means the theme has two sidebars.
In the case of Vertigo red, the two sidebars are both on the right. This is a current trend, that works well for some sites, though it limits the space available for content. Personally, I’d go with the 2-column version (which is the one pictured to the right).
Vertigo Red is a traditional-style blog theme, listing the most recent posts down the front page, unlike the innovative Gridlock theme, which only shows three posts on the main page.
