In the world of online applications, there are many different themes available, especially for WordPress. Searching through these huge directories of themes can be annoying, and somewhat disheartening after installing cookie cutter theme after cookie cutter theme. It seems too many of the themes out there are just boring remakes of standard designs by developers who want those footer links for SEO reasons.
Well, its time to break out of this. Let me show you the best places to find themes on the net.
A hugely popular way to find some cream of the crop themes is to browse a few “top lists.” Top lists are lists designed to showcase the authors favorite designs or features through a list of themes that feature exactly that. Lets start are own top list of top lists for WordPress themes:
