  3. Baidyanath says

    I always like the blogger theme. The only thing that disappoint me, hosting in a sub-domain and if we take a domain, still limited feature to implement required applications.

    I like the “best theme”. Thanks for providing information, resources on freebies.

  5. Mark Grisham says

    Great post Rudolph! Very nice themes indeed! Generally speaking anyone or everybody would be attracted to these themes since their free but design and compatibility with the blog or website matters too but most of these themes are just awesome so no bad vibes! Thanks for sharing! :)

    Some of them are very nice themes for Business Start-ups but I believe that they only way to create some thing unique is by designing it separately so you can present your self differently then others.
