    well i was sort of looking for a theme that would be easy to plug in affiliate links and write up a quick text or review. Something easily customizable and has worked for others before.

    Look for "magazine" inside WordPress dashboard theme search option. I saw a couple of good looking themes over there which you can use for your niche site.

    Search for free WP theme, or go to the download section to find a good one

    some guideline:

    1. looks nice and clean - you like
    2. responsive design is important
    3. above 2
