A Better Wordpress Archive?

Hey all, I’ve been following the tutorials on YouTube for how to make a basic WordPress theme, but I’m not overly happy with the suggestion for how to do an archive. I’d really like to just have my basic template wrapped around a list of the titles of my blog posts. Having it separated by months or years would be okay but not overly necessary. I just don’t tend to use post images and the only way suggested in the tutorial is super image heavy.

Any thoughts on what to do?
