It comprises various templates or files which work together in the background to give you the chosen look and feel for your blog. Following the below tips help you to select your blog theme simply and efficiently.

1. Category: This means what is your blog all near. It defines the kind of viewers you want to target your blog too. For example, if you want to write a blog about dogs, then your blog comes above the Pets category. Or if you like to target to the persons interested in cooking then you category would be Food.

Also, there is another advantage in using a theme of your favorite color as you do not essential to change a lot in the theme to get your color.

But I recommend not to focus much on this feature because it is not that difficult to change it later once you are contented with the code behind it. Rather concentrate on the layout of the theme. Decide on what type of layout you want. Browse done the list of themes you have at WordPress.org and other websites sited above. This will give you an idea of how it looks and then you can simply make a decision. There are number of layouts available, but current are:

Single Column

Two Column (With Sidebar)

Three Column

Four column

Fixed width

Fluid width

Also there are some layouts exactly designed for Photos centered and Videos centered blogs. I feel you have to select a theme which you can live with it for long term as you are the one who visits your blog the most. Research some themes with some test posts and pages. Comment them, categorize them and see how your selected theme looks. This is the best way to confirm you have the right theme. Do not see the blog theme from your own point of view but from your reader’s point of view.

3. Purpose of your blog: This is main as this will help you to select your free theme for website for the long term. If you are successful to write a blog only for you to vent out your emotions and thoughts, you do not need to give much importance to many other features of your blog like advertisements, widgets, etc. But if you blog to help others like this one you are currently reading, or to make money out of it, then you need to also reflect few other things in addition to the above ones.

Some things you need to ruminate are, if that best premium wordpress themes supports advertisements without much tweaking and revolving the code, does the theme supports the widgets or plugins, like RSS, Protection from Spam comments, Search engine optimization, etc. By default when you have employed up for a Wordpress blog, you will be provided with default themes. You can use them or select your own from staying the WordPress’s own free theme for website or other Paid WP theme websites. These websites provide professional looking themes with excellent provision.

4. Support: Ensure you will get the support you wanted while using the theme from the theme author or website owner. I have seen many times, that the site owner from where the best blog themes wordpress free is downloaded could not capable to help the user who have downloaded and used it for their blog because they are not developed by himself but somebody else and he is only helping them. If this is the case when you need the support most, then it would main to frustration and waste of time for you.
