I think that WordPress themes are the best thing since sliced bread. Seriously. The fact that for under $40 you can have a professionally designed background and layout with oodles of customization options is really quite amazing in my book. Now, I’m not talking about the free themes that come available in WordPress… for the casual blogger those may work fine but if you want a fresh and modern looking business website you need to buck up and grab a paid theme. They are so worth it!
I have tried out dozens of theme tools over the past few years. I’ve been enticed by the ones that promise to make things extra easy and I’ve checked out many companies to find the best selection for an affordable price. No matter what I try, I keep coming back to my two favorite resources.
1. Elegant Themes
The mighty man over at Elegant Themes is not only talented, but generous. He gives you access to literally dozens of themes for one low rate. Plus, all of their designs are clean, intuitive and fresh. Highly recommended! (Disclosure, although I use affiliate links I only promote this stuff because I really do love it) ;>
2. Theme Forest
Theme Forest is like the Etsy of digital stuff. :) They have much more than WordPress themes there, but I have found some really amazing themes, plugins and e-mail templates over there that make it easy to create like a pro. You will pay per theme but still less than $40 for a fabulous WordPress template. Check it out!
