Chances are you have two or three themes in mind now, but you don’t know what to choose.

You try to convince yourself: ‘I will start with this theme. Then I will use this one when I create another blog’.

It’s hard.

But don’t worry! You are not alone.

I was just like you some time ago.

I still remember reading my first blog post about the best WordPress themes to use.

And I don’t remember exactly where I read it, but I was so confused because all the themes they mentioned were amazing.

But I kept on reading articles until I fell in love with my current theme.

And here, I am going to share with you 10 of the best WordPress themes for blogs in the market right now.

Without further ado, let’s get started.

The first WordPress theme I want to introduce is called The7.

With its 60+ beautifully prebuilt websites, The7 is very handy when it comes to creating a website.

If you plan to create a course, a fashion blog, or a news-looking website, you’ll never go wrong with this WordPress theme.

When you buy The7, you also access the The7 Elements, a multi-feature plugin-companion for the theme.

It has many elements and features like new post types and extends WooCommerce and other select plugins.

One more good thing?

Well, another cool thing with this theme is The7 Theme Options.

Basically, you get more than 1000 Theme Options and 250 Page Options.

Travel, pets, freelancing, virtual assistant, food, teacher, fitness – you can import any demo and customize it the way you want.

But Avada doesn’t stop there.

Just for you and me, let’s call it the ‘building’ theme because it has all the builders you can imagine:

Live Visual builder, Layout builder, Header builder, Footer builder, and Form builder.

Actually, no. It doesn’t.

It even makes things easier because each builder has dedicated features.

Don’t start from scratch. The form builder has amazing templates for you.

You are ready to create your header?

Good. Here is where to go!

Now, let’s suppose that you want an online store.

You want to display product images, descriptions, cart, weight, sizes, color choices, prices, reviews, and more.

Can you do it with Avada?


And for your store, you also have a dedicated builder: The Avada WooCommerce Builder.

It comes with tons of styling options that can be placed anywhere on a product page.

Divi WordPress Theme Homepage

The first time I heard about Divi, I was being interviewed for a content writing job.

The man on the other side of the screen was very friendly, though he was asking many questions.

My problem was that I never wrote content for anybody.

And I never used WordPress.

I was actually interested in creating my own blog at that time, but I also wanted to get some experience.

That’s why this job was perfect for me.

So the recruiter asked me:

Have you built a website before? – No.

Have you written content using WordPress before? – No.

Do you have any experience with WordPress? – Yes. I have never used WordPress, but I have watched dozen of videos and read tons of posts about it. It’s easy to use.

I thought to myself: ‘Those were poor answers.’

But surprisingly, the man was ready to teach me how to use Divi and write content.

He recorded tutorial videos just to train me.

And that’s how I discovered and used Divi for the first time!

That was my first practical experience with WordPress, and Divi is the first theme I’ve ever used.

Since then, I have seen ads about Divi everywhere, and today, 700,000+ people use it to create their beautiful website.

All Divi customers have access to over 200 website packs or designs with more than 1500 layouts.

This means that you find whatever design you’re looking for.

So What Do You Get With Divi

As a Divi user, you access things like:

  • Extra, Bloom, and Monarch
  • Drag-and-drop Page Builder
