I just got my first rejection notice, it said:

Is a Ghost theme, demo here.
Some tips that can help me understand?, I have reviewed the documentation and the requirements of ghost and I kept every thing.
My design is ugly or is that my code is horrible? or maybe both?
This looks way too simple even for a Ghost theme. I would suggest to work on typography as this can do a magic. Also, I didn’t checked your code but I hope it is clear that it must be valid.
Overall it is not bad, definitely not ugly, just need more to it. Good luck!
