Blog Themes To Remember


Blog in metalI might blog all about my journey to graduate school but I also own a business in which I spend a lot of time designing and tweeking blog themes. Occasionally I spend a blog post of two offering up advice on WordPress blogging, after all I spend all day buried in WordPress themes so why not share the wealth? You may remember my last post of ten things you need to know about your blog where I mentioned a few good places to find themes for your favorite WordPress blog, well today I want to share with you a few of my favorite WordPress themes.

Bold – This is a beautifully simply three column theme with plenty of advertising space, although I much prefer it without the top two larger boxes (easily removed). The texture to this blog theme is one of my favorite aspects.$19.99 from Elegant Themes.

Busy Bee – Another clean cut three column theme with plenty of advertising space. This one has a magazine front page layout and a spacious footer. I also like the double nav bars at the top of this theme. $70 from Woo Themes.

Perfume – Again with the three columns and plenty of advertising. This is a brightly colored theme for those who love the bright pinks and it also features a slide-show and extra, very saleable ad space under your header. Free from Rock Kitty.

City Journal – A fun three column theme with ad space galore. This is a more amateur theme but would work well for a home or personal blog. Free from Rock Kitty.

Orange Dream – A beautifully colored theme with plenty of ad space and unique category headings. I much prefer this theme without the three sections on the left under the nav bar and I would change the nav text color to white. Free from Free WP Blog Themes.

De Pinque – Another pink one for your lovers of color. With a header slideshow to showcase featured posts and a generally cute layout with three columns and a lot of ad space! Free from Free WP Blog Themes.

Bhaskar – If you absolutely must have a dark background on your theme use something like Bhaskar where backgrounds are layered and you’re not left with text on a black background! This is another three column theme with a slideshow for featured content and a double nav bar system. This theme can also be customized with any color background and still look great. Free from Free WP Blog Themes.

iGreat – This clean cut two column theme is spacious with a featured post slideshow and double nav bars. Free from Free WP Blog Themes.

Grungemag Theme – Another magazine type theme with a featured post slideshow, double nav bar and ad space galore. This theme can be customized to show what you like on the index whether it’s just snippets of posts, blocks of categories or entire posts it’s an easy fix. $19.95 from Elegant Themes.

Magazeen Theme – If you like simple and clean and are looking for a single sidebar and featured article section on your blog then this is the theme for you. Free from Smashing Magazine.

    Great suggestions! I just spent all of the holiday break trying to tweak my theme. I love the crispness of your site. What theme do you use?
