    What themes do you guys use for your Wordpress blogs?

    I have taken a liking to magazine3's themes, but am looking for some new ones for my upcoming projects, mainly niche sites. I have noticed since switching to paid themes that look good my bounce rate Is on average 11%-15% (I know It also has to do with content quality, and a couple other factors).

    Any suggestions are welcome! Maybe a theme site where you pay a monthly fee to access all themes? Would work great for me because I setup many new sites a month. Have not found a good theme site like that yet.


    -Thanks

    Yes, genuine.

    I use to go the cheap way out and get freebies/cracked/nulled stuff, but where I'm at now paying for something I like doesn't bother me.

    hmmm you can always make a selection of themes for yourself, if you are building lots of websites, and use them according to the niche. themes should be selected depending on niche, in that way they work better for both selected audience and normal visitors.

    don't know a membership websites for themes, but of course there are freebies communities where you can be member and they update there download sections often with new one's.

    I understand that they should be selected depending on niche. I own almost all magazine3's themes and use them accordingly, but they don't have a huge variety.

    There are a few WP theme membership sites that I have come across, but the price of membership reflects the quality of their themes sadly (cheap).

    I guess I will try out some freebie sites/community's, but I tend to go with paid themes because of the more "professional" looks. Mind sharing some good sources? Launching around 30 new sites this month since research Is done so I need to get crackin :p

    elegantthemes is really nice, they're very clean, very responsive and you can get them for quite cheap (or for free in member downloads)

    Take a look at "The Retailer". Responsive, woo commerce and mailchimp integration, shortcodes, full control of the css properties, retina, multiple page layouts, wigetized areas, and a revolution slider.
