I've been checking through all of the existing themes on offer in the Word Press Admin (all 600 plus that are there), as well as Googled themes, and haven't found quite what I like yet. I don't want fancy with bells and whistles. What I like is simple, elegant, classy with style. Plenty of white space. Nice font, nice layout.
Any way, regardless of what I'm looking for, I thought it could be neat to see what your favourite Word Press themes are.
Thanks for sharing Sander. I wasn't going to copy any person's specific Website, just wanted to assemble ideas. I was also looking specifically at a blog theme, not a general Website theme. For the blogging I'm now experimenting with existing themes from Word Press and modifying them for a slightly more individual look. I decided to stick with Word Press (rather than another source) as at least one would assume Word Press has tried and tested the theme from a security point of view.
I like the GamePress theme which is free, but its a bit dark for a blog.
From that 4 I like zeestyle the most.
I'm working on it at the moment. Got the basics up, but need to improvise a lot still.
Must say Word Press themes are effortless to install. And very fast. Also easy to modify.
Thats true, its very easy.
Also building your own plugins/widgets is pretty ease (as long you don't add the admin part of it).
the default....!!!! lol....

One of the best and the most used theme by me is the Ecobiz WordPress Theme. The theme is perfectly designed and have many features.
I like elegant theme's evolution. I think it has a minimalistic style and it looks really neat and simple, making it easy for visitors to navigate and read.
Learn simple html and simple css and you can modify the default themes as you like. You don't need to buy themes. But of course if you want themes that you really like buying themes can also be useful.
They have great support and designs.
Although most of their themes are paid.
They are great whsecurity. I particularly like the igloo one. Anything that has extra white space in it. I'm not as partial for dark, but then the three themes cater for all tastes I think.
WOOthemes, although it increases resource, but the feature available is great. But if you want more seo friendly, you better use DIY.
I don't know them, do you have a link I can follow?
A friend of mine is using the kieran theme. It's simple and uncluttered. Pretty cool
Bst, Starter theme for wordpress using Twitter Bootstrap, I use it without modifying.
I tried following themes:
Now I have zeroed down on Aspen. Lots of functionality, Free and fully customizable. The best theme in my opinion

Have you googled for Bootstrap templates or themes? There are a ton of really nice designs out there which are easy to customize, and they're already scripted to be responsive.
