Blog Design/Themes


  • Elegant Themes  We think Elegant Themes is awesome, their themes are easy to use, and they have quite a few different options. It’s also a bit cheaper than the other premium themes listed here. Check them out and see what you think.  (heads up this blog runs the theme DIVI from Elegant Themes).
  • ThemeForest – ThemeForest contains a huge selection of WordPress Themes. We would recommend starting here at the Popular WordPress Themes.
  • The Thesis Theme – (DIY themes) – are great for a first-time blog. Thesis Skins from DIYthemes are one of the most optimized website frameworks available today.
