How I Customise My WordPress Blog For Free

Being very fickle-minded, I tend to get bored with the same typical style. My blog design is one one them. I can change the theme almost every month as WordPress has a a ton of theme designs that are so pretty and multi functional with interesting features that I can choose from. Most importantly, they are free!

This page is created to showcase my past blogskins. Click the image for more in-depth design process and guide to achieve the look. More website design inspiration can be found at Webspiration and my Pinboard.

PS: You can try out WordPress theme in Live Preview by going to Appearance> Themes in your dashboard. See the effect before switching. Or set up another duplicate blog in private mode to test out your graphics.

Here is my blogskin timeline in descending order. Click the image to know about the theme change.

I fell in love with the Confit theme at first sight. The semi-transparent sidebar and body allows me to showcase the blog background. The theme is very professional and functional. Recommend for any first time users to get started with this theme.
