I work with WordPress more than 6 years now and I really tried 1000+ themes and plugins.
And I always liked that feeling whey you buy new theme and you spend next days setting it up and making logo, new menus, exploring design and code…
Now, I want to show you some of the best wordpress themes for blogs.
These themes could be used for personal blogs, niche blogs, review blogs and video blogs.
So basically, you can use them to create any type of site, with wordpress.
Now, I will list 5 best themes and I hope you will love them too.
I don’t have domain and hosting for a website!
It’s fine, you can read my article with tutorial on: HOW TO BUY HOSTING AND GET FREE DOMAIN FOR YOUR WEBSITE!
This is a-z tutorial with photos of step by step Bluehost hosting installation.
How to choose domain for my website?
– You should choose some .com domain so make the Your Niche keyword + (some word) domain, it’s easier for people to remember it and it’s better looking.
If you buy Bluehost Hosting you will get free domain for your website.
