Free Wordpress Theme

***Been asked to post this for quite sometime already. I am terrible procrastinator. Not a good habit of which I am trying to shake it off. However, better late than never. Here it goes***


Design plays an important part in websites and in this case, blogs. Design functions as an attraction for people to keep on reading/viewing your blog which is why the first impression is important. In order to get that first impression, the first thing people see when they look at websites are the designs.
(Yes, I know my blog's design sucks but hey, I am not focusing on visitors and for the record I did plan to change the design but because I am such a wonderful procrastinator, that would probably takes forever.)

Thus, people try to change the theme or layout every now and then to suit the ever changing taste of the design world. Things change that is for sure.

Hence the need for ready made themes that can easily be applied to your blog. Go Google for free theme or free layout for your blog and I am sure you can find a lot. That is if you don't know how to create your own theme or layout.

And that will be the focus of this post. Ready made theme. For Wordpress user only though. Kai Loon offers free Wordpress theme in his blog every now and then, or so he says. His very first free Wordpress theme is out for download and it is called The Blue Blog which is a 3-Column layout theme.

The Blue Blog has 2 widget ready sidebar, custom templates, integrated plug-ins and it is also digg, delicious, and stumbleupon ready.

Example of the theme can be seen at his personal blog, Brand O Brand.
