Happy Friday and September 1st everyone!
When you host your website with WordPress, you have an option of selecting either a free theme from the WP theme section, or you can purchase one from a different source. Having the option of purchasing your own theme is just one of my favorite features about WordPress. Here’s a list of theme shops I’ve used, and personally recommend.

Hello You Designs is one of my favorites! I’ve used HYD for a very long time and have always been very happy with them. They have a large selection of themes to choose from as well as a library of helpful video instructions to help with installing and setting up your theme. There’s even an option for browsing through demos to get a feel for what the theme will look like once installed.
Envato Market (or Theme Forest) offers thousands of professional and very unique themes. Not only do they offer tons of wonderful themes, they also have a large variety of other digital items such as stock photography, stock music and audio, motion graphics, and more.
If you need an affordable, professional, and trendy theme for your blog or website, Etsy is the place for you! There are individual sellers throughout Etsy that’ll have their own shop setup where you can purchase themes from them. You can also use the theme immediately after purchase and if you have any trouble with installing or technical related issues, the shop owners are very helpful with providing information.
A few Etsy theme shops I recommend:
Dana Fox is the owner of The Wonder Forest (Her blog) and Envye (Her theme shop). I’ve followed and read Dana’s blog posts for a very long time and have always loved her articles. I think she has amazing themes in her shop and I have always loved the unique style of her work.
This article was a bit shorter than the average ones that I share but I hope it’s still helpful. Good luck on finding your new WordPress theme and feel free to share your favorites in the comments!
