It is now time to begin dressing up our blog. In the WordPress platform every blog must clothed. This clothing I called a theme. This is the like a beautiful but customizable cloth that you were the blog. In the WordPress world they are thousands of themes to choose from.

All themes do not have the same level of beauty and power. This is why you have free themes and paid themes. However, there are many free themes that can go a very long way in help you create an awesome blog website.

We would be choosing one today called the Colormag theme. It is the one I used use in building my website www.signalnet.org It has both the free version and the paid version too.
