I just designed and released a couple of simple, clean blogging themes for the Ghost and WordPress platforms - with a strong focus on typography: the result is highly readable text for blogs that are, well, text-heavy: Vienna WordPress Theme, Vienna (for Ghost) and Johnson (Ghost)
Vienna WordPress Theme & Vienna (for Ghost) has two fonts; one for display (and beautiful corsiva and ampersands) and a great body text with real small-caps ( more difficult than it sounds ). Typography sensitive design professionals will appreciate the typesetting.
Johnson is a no-nonsense, no distractions blogging theme designed for easy reading and, well, not much else actually. If words are your thing, you might find Johnsons' simple nature chimes with you.
