Adding more styles to your wordpress theme, and why is that “style” highlighted ? Simple : because, this post is about making your blog look more stylish, by adding few more stylesheets ie, style sheets for categories.
I was reading this post fromÂ http://tarskitheme.com about a brilliant plugin : Category Style Sheets. byÂ Benedict Â Eastaugh. Â It is a simple but awesome plugin that allows you to add style sheets for each category of your blog. That means, you can have different background colors, images, link colors etc for individual category archives, and each post in that category.
What I have done, ( So Far )
I have created two style sheets for two of my categories. WordPress & Blogging. I have changed background colors for category archive pages, and individual pots in these two categories. Now, go to any blog post in that category and you will see the plugin in action. I have changed only the background color. Should I try more ? Do you have any suggestion ?

If any of you guys wants to use it, let me know, I can send you the theme, eventhough it is not ready for a public release. So, if someone wants to use it, I can make few more changes needed, and then send the zip file.
