Readers doesn’t like messy homepage. Even if you have good blog content but your page is a mess they might lose interest. That’s why if you want to attract more readers, you should have a nice and presentable homepage because through it, your readers will have a glimpse of what you write or do.

If you are just starting your blog on WordPress, looking for the right theme is difficult as it takes time and familiarity. But once you figured out the right one for you, you’d be surprised that you are using it for months or even years!

With all the free themes available, below are my top 3 picks.


This is my current theme and I love it. I’ve been using it for 4 months and it was just 2 months ago month when I figured out how to make a homepage and recent page where the readers can see all my recent posts.

I love the simplicity of the theme and how I could show my top blog posts for the week. I also fell in love with it because the theme lets its users to put a logo. To get the demos’ front page look, just check the info and follow the instructions.


This theme has a sideshow which will highlight your featured posts (maximum of 8 posts). The slideshow will work well when you set a featured photo on your posts. This is a great theme when you are into photography and are sharing your work.

Just follow the instructions and you’ll get the demos’ homepage look.


Again, another simple theme which is similar to Sela. However, with this theme, it allows the user to easily navigate the menu because when you scroll the page down, the menu will remain on your screen. This theme also allows the user to put a logo which I personally love.

Remember to follow the instructions at the info page.

**The themes mentioned are fully responsive.
**Note that these are just suggestions.

  1. so many themes out there QQ I still have the first one that I started with. No fancy Flash websites just straight plain text. I’ve been looking for a new one but none really attract me, I mean one that suits me, so I’ll stick with the one I have now. I also don’t know if I pick a new theme, how this will affect my widgets, banners etc.

  2. Hi Nina,
    This was helpful. I have tried a permutation and combination of 12 themes and finally decided to stick to Activello. Activello is free (you can upgrade to premium, but I didn’t feel the need to), responsive and looks cool. I am primarily a book review blogger and occasionally write about social stuff. This theme feels great for me. If you have suggestions on blogs great for book reviews or author’s blogs, please share. Thanks again. Anindita.
