When starting a blog with WordPress, you need a theme that suits your style and offers you everything you will need in the long run. While there are literally hundreds of thousands of WordPress themes available, it can be really difficult to find the best theme for your blog.

When choosing a WordPress theme, here are a couple of things to look for:

  • Responsive Design: If the theme doesn’t come with a responsive design, your website won’t be accessible on mobile devices. A responsive design looks beautiful on all devices.

  • Customization Options: You should look for a theme that offers enough customization for you to be able to customize the theme to suit your style and needs.
