Below you will find the best free responsive WordPress themes for bloggers. Themes for bloggers are characterized by a focus on content and a chronological structure.
Thoughts, a WPExplorer theme, is free, responsive and clearly designed with bloggers, or more generally what I’d call content creators, firmly in mind. This is evident from the fact that the theme doesn’t come with any widgetised areas, so there are no sidebars and no footer. What it does come with are 7 different post formats for sharing 7 different types of content, namely: standard, gallery, image, video, quote, audio and link. The standard post format features a large slider. If you use the image post format, your visitors will be able to open your image in a lightbox that can be expanded to fullscreen. This means that the focus is placed squarely on your content, or ‘thoughts’.
Created specifically for food bloggers who like to share recipes, Wellblog will only appeal to a select few, but they are likely to be happy with it.
A simple, yet feature-filled blogging template – that’s Meeta.
11. Something Fishy
Something Fishy is a fun, free personal blog theme by Caroline Moore. Click the demo button below scroll down and you’ll be treated to a dangling fishing line and scrolling fishy background image!
Tetris by WPExplorer would work equally well as a blog or personal portfolio. The home page and archive pages utilise a Masonry layout, which readers of this site will know is my favourite kind of layout, so props to the theme author, AJ Clarke, for that. The theme also features a number of post formats.
