Top 5 WordPress Blogging Themes for 2019
IdeaHuncho

WordPress was originally created to be a blogging platform. Now, it does more than that. It powers over 30% of the internet and at it’s core, WordPress is the by far the best platform for blogging. If you go to 10 blogs today, there’s a very high chance that 7-8 out of them run on WordPress.

Million dollar brands such as New York Observer, New York Post, TED, Thought Catalog, Williams, USA Today, CNN, Fortune.com, TIME.com, National Post, Spotify, TechCrunch, CBS Local, NBC all make use of WordPress. 

What makes WordPress one of the best platforms to run your blog is the ease of creating and publishing content, the user-friendliness of the dashboard and the crazy amount of plugins and themes available that can make your “little blog” look like a million dollar blog with little or no upfront investment.

I hope from the way am talking, you can already tell that this blog you are on is powered by WordPress. I even have the WordPress app on my phone that allows me to keep track of things, publish posts on the go or correct blunders I might have made when writing my posts on my PC.

If you are like me and you care about the look and beauty of your blog, then picking the right WordPress blogging theme is paramount. Before I launched ThePresidentialHustle.com, I wasn’t only concerned about how to create content but also how my blog looks, how it makes visitors feel and how things flow.

People will instantly judge your blog by it’s look, no matter how great the content on your blog is – if the layout is poor and looks too busy – it will make your reader(s) bounce off. So, it is important to pick the right theme for blogging.

I have been designing websites for brands and businesses for over 5years now, I have a very high taste in design, I don’t settle for less. I believe in first impressions. So, these 5 WordPress Blogging Themes that made this list all meet my most important criteria:

  • Clean, Modern, Intuitive and Beautiful
  • Mobile responsive and retina ready
  • Beautiful front page and post layouts
  • Quality and not hype or amount of sales
  • Good reviews and comments.
