    You have great info here…I came over from browsing at Pro Blogger. Imagine my excitement to see you featuring the WP theme Exquisite, as I’m in the process of getting my own domain name and wanting a different look. Exquisite is my top choice after looking for more than an hour at all the WP themes…

    Great idea narrowing down the nice ones for us! Thanks!

    I am still confused when it comes to WordPress costs. I know that the basic system is free, but am I right in thinking that if you want to use your own theme, you have to pay about $15 a year?

    So, are these themes going to cost a new WordPress user?

  • Kris Davis

    If I am not mistaken, all wordpress themes are free. You can switch between the ones above fairly easily once they are downloaded.

  • Daniel

    Rory, if you are hosting your blog you can use most WP themes since they are released either as open source or with a creative commons license.

  • Rory

    I don’t mean to turn this into a forum – but I don’t think I could reproduce my theme over at hamelife on WordPress without having to pay $15 or 15 credits. I always seem to come to a point where it won’t let me alter the CSS without being asked to purchase 15 credits. Am I misunderstanding this?

    I know some would argue that this is a small price to pay for your own personalised blog, but I just want to know whether I have my facts right.

  • Daniel

    Rory, the 15 credits stuff is necessary if you are hosting your blog with WordPress. Most of the themes you find on the Internet are free as I said, but WordPress charges users for some features (like customizing the CSS or getting a personalized domain name).

    Have you ever considered to host your own blog, like on Dreamhost or Hostgator?

  • Rory

    Thanks, Daniel. You motivated me to check my own set-up.

    I already have hamelife hosted on a server – but the blog side of it is still with Blogger. My host does have WordPress capabilities, and I have installed it, but I have not been able to figure out how to use it. I was still under the impression it was a paid-for service when it comes to using your own CSS.

    Well, I have dug deep into the bowels of my WordPress installation, recovered my password and username, and I have found that I can do whatever I want, basically. So, over the next few days I will see what I can do with the themes etc. and how hard it is to transfer my Blogger archives. I can’t say I’m looking forward to it.

    Thank you, once again.

    Can you pass on any encouraging advice about switching to a new address? Maybe a post about it, and how to maintain the visitors who have subscribed, because I’m assuming I will have to reset Feedburner etc.

    This is also a very good candidate for your list:

  • Terry

    Akon WordPress Theme for something clean and simple.

  • Daniel

    John and Terry, those are 2 very good looking themes, thanks for sharing.

  • nate

    Pretty good list but there aren’t any three columned layouts.

  • Becky

    Tiga is a 3-column theme I’ve used for a church; theme is well-designed though not so splashy to look at. It’s easy to customize.


    he also provides customizing directions

    Great list. It’s a pity I found them ‘after’ browsing through the entire WordPress theme directory. I’ve used the darkzen and bookmarked most of the ones you’ve selected above, they are all very well layed out and professional looking! Another nice simple and new one is the cordobo-green-park-2.

    Thanks for the list..
