    Hello Guys,

    I am starting a blog about, tech, media, enternatinment, news, and about other interesting stuff. I have liked few magazine style templates like SmartMag in themeforest. I wonderign whether there would be any other interesting templates you would like to suggest. Definiteltly it should be Mobile Responsive.


    Let me know your suggestions
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    You can check out these themes from Wordpress. I can name many more here, but it will lead to the confusion regarding which to choose and which to reject. I hope you will like it. Good luck with your site. :)

    I wouldn't spend any money on a magazine theme unless you see a premium one you really like, there are plenty of well designed and responsive ones for free on wordpress.org

    Themes always come down to personal taste. So if I were you, I'd just search for "best responsive magazine style wordpress theme". And let the fun begin.

    Can i give you some friendly advice? I've been blogging for quite sometime now. I have over 100 first page ranking on google for my new site which is just a month and a half old. The organic traffic and engagement is looking nice. Ahemm, anyways! Don't go for anything flashy. Keep it simple, Make sure you're site is easy to navigate. People will be landing on you blog through google searches, But when they do flick through you're site you don't want it to look like a shop. That's just my opinion though! Have you're categories off to the side and offer a handful of useful pages at the top. Good luck!

    MagazinePro from Genesis themes is pretty cool. I use it on one of my sites.

    My advise is always to go for minimalistic cleaner themes, which will make reading a lot better for readers and reduced loading times.

    There are so many themes for free but if you still searching for a good theme, then check at themeshop. Magazines are the best themes for technology related blogs.
