30 WordPress Themes for General Blogging

Remember that thing WordPress was used for before it was your business website, your ecommerce store, your web tv channel, and your digital portfolio? Oh yeah, I think it was called blogging. It’s pretty crazy how far WordPress has come since it’s invention. Most of us who work on it day in and day out don’t think of it as a blogging platform so much as a super powerful content management system that with the right theme can become just about anything. But it’s nice to remember that WordPress IS still a blogging platform and some people don’t want to launch a product or host a store they just want to blog. So for those of you out there like myself who enjoy a beautiful personal blogging theme just as much as all the rest – here are 30 really cool ones.
