A variation on the popular PinBlack theme, this one in blue
Like PinBlack this is totally inspired by Pinterest, and features home and archive pages laid out in that familiar pinterest style. To ensure each post has a thumbnail for the home page just make sure you upload a featured image for each post.
The Blogist theme is a personal blog theme for the blogger who likes to present a professional face. Like all our themes it is widget ready and supports custom menus. It also has a featured post slot on the home page which can be used for promoting sticky posts, or by default it will just display the latest post…a great way to ensure people see the content you really want to promote.
Archive page feature thumbnails generated automagically and the full width page template is useful for more static websites.
NewsBeat is a straight up two column blog theme with an old school newspaper aesthetic.

It’s free so download it and give it a whirl.

The Online Marketer WordPress theme is definitely more business oriented. The design brief for this one was simple, smart, and professional. Like all our themes it comes with a full width template included for static content pages. It supports custom menus and widgets so it remains very flexible and could easily be used for a static content site, a blog, or a site incorporating both which is pretty much all sites these days. You can of course swap out the main header image for anything you like to suit your own niche.
