The best theme for blog websites and WordPress setups in general is…(drumroll)… no one theme in particular.
Now you may scoff at me saying that, but hear me out for just a second…
The most important recommendation I will ever give you is this: Use a professional theme and not a free theme.
“Why is that?,” you ask?
The most often-asked question, the one I always get is: “When it comes to building a web presence for myself online and using WordPress, why can’t I use a FREE theme?”
My personal answer to that question is that you are more than welcome to use any free theme you’d like. There are 100’s of them out there.
However, the list of reasons not to use a free theme can be long (and it grows with each passing day, it seems), but here’s the short of it:
Now I can go into a long “tirade” about the multiple back doors that free WordPress themes open you up to, but I’ll spare you that nonsense.
You really want to buckle down and hear what I’m saying here.
“Just invest the money up front and go with a good, secure professional theme right out of the hat.”
Keep in mind you can get most professional WordPress themes for $40-$60 dollars and install it yourself really easily. And you should.
There are a lot of professional wordpress theme sellers out there, but 2 of the websites I personally highly recommend are:
In fact, when it comes to finding the best theme for blog websites, you want to find the one that’s best for YOU!
That’s right! You just read that right.
Find the professional theme that displays the posts, pages, videos and images on your WordPress website the way YOU want it to…and you can’t go wrong.
“Do I want you spending HOURS or even DAYS trying to find just the right theme? NO.”
You will want to pick a professional theme that you’ve looked at a few times, but really one that kind of “speaks” to you as part of the personality of your website and your own personality.
This is because you are the creator of the website. You are the one that will be creating most if not all of the content.
So how do you want it to look?
One word of warning here, though: Don’t take too much time picking a theme!
I see a lot of people getting bogged down and in some cases actually stuck not being able to simply pick a theme.
Don’t worry about theme choice too much.
Purchase a theme that you like and get going!
Realize that it will take some time to start getting traffic from search results to your posts and videos anyway, so theme and look are not yet as important as the content you create.
“The only people that will initially see your website are those you tell about it directly. It will take a little time for others to find it and see it on the internet. So relax.”
The best theme for blog websites used for network marketing lead generation and the best one for YOUR website, is a good professional theme that YOU want to use.
You can always change the theme down the road once you get your website going.
So pick a good professional theme and get started!
