Looking for something?



Empfire a personal and lifestyle blog that I started back in 2011. The name “Empfire” is a combination of the words “Empire” and “Fire”, which are also the names of songs by the band Kasabian.

Over the years Empfire has had a quite a few makeovers. The current theme features a simple design that really focuses on imagery. It was the first WordPress theme I built using CSS Flexbox.

Empfire currently features almost 500 blog posts and the main source of traffic to the website is Google.


The entire WordPress theme was custom developed by me. I did not use any frameworks, child themes or page builder plugins.

  • Custom page templates
  • Custom search results page
  • “Sticky” navigation on scroll
