The Best WordPress Themes, Help Me Choose One

Well here I am, staring at page after page of new potential designs for my blog, like I do at the rows of shoes in my closet every morning. It’s true. We are good at giving others advice. When it comes to our own marketing we tend to draw a blank. Is that true for you? It is for me. I’d rather design your blog than my own.

So hey friend, why don’t you help me design mine? I’m not asking much this should take five minutes. Here’s the deal. This blog is on the WordPress platform and redesigning it requires a new “template” which essentially is a set of style sheets with various color options that I can slap my logo on and customize. You can build your own WordPress template from scratch but it takes more work and resources. I think there are some amazing options here and this is an easier route (for me). So, below are the templates I’m considering please take a look and leave a comment telling me which one you think I should go with. And, any other requests or suggestions. After all I do write this blog for you.

Before you look understand what you’re looking for: structure, menus, layout and features. Do not pay attention to the header or logo images that will be changed. And you are welcome to click through to live demo the blog and see all the color options and page layouts.

Inspired to redesign your own blog (or website)?

Here are my favorite spots to source WordPress themes some of them are free. You will need a self-hosted WordPress.org site to use these and customize on this level.

I didn’t go with any of the selections listed in this post. I hope you like the new design, you’re looking at it.
