23 Best Responsive WordPress Blog Themes of 2014

WordPress allows you to run any kind of website. You can define any kind of layout for your site depending upon your purpose. But if you go back to WordPress startup days, it was started only as a core blogging platform. After so many years of its success, WordPress blog themes are still among the one of the best available options for starting a new blog.

So here I have listed 28 best and responsive WordPress blog themes ever built that you can use to set up your new blogging website.

WordPress Blog Themes


Schema

Schema is one of the most latest WordPress blogging theme launched by Mythemeshop recently. It is one of the most fastest theme ever built and loads amazingly quick. The theme offers all the essential features that anyone would need on a blogging theme like quality code, SEO friendly design, responsiveness, advertisement management, review system, snippet support, translation ready, shortcodes powerful admin panel and of course a neat and tidy design for the visitors.

Beandot

Beandot is one of our most favourite blog template in this list. The design is simple yet exceptional and there is no doubt about it. The sidebar is a little more wider; a trend we see in many famous design blogs these days as they are capable of offering 200px wide advertisement banners. There is also an in-built review system that can be used to offer reviews of any products by using a plugin that comes within the theme package. Though I was surprised to see the lack of mega menu option as compared to other themes from the same author and I hope they would put the mega menu in this theme as well.

Bloom

Another blogging theme from Famethemes, offering more or less the same features as the previous theme but in a different design. This theme has 2 menus so that you can put more links over them. The design is based on 3 column grid with a pretty decent content slider on the middle and famous articles on the left side. The theme uses a custom grid of 980px width and I think by keeping this to lower (as compared to other themes which are more wider), the authors have tried to reduce the cluttering of the content and they have succeeded in it quite successfully.

The theme offers 7 advertisement areas where you can put ads by just a click of a button.

Another theme from Mythemeshop; though most of the themes from Mythemeshop offers almost similar function, but I was forced to include this theme in this list due to its wonderful design.

Blue Blog – Responsive WordPress Blog Theme

Next on my list is a theme named Blue Blog which offers a simple and clean design and can be used by both – magazine website or a blog website. There is a slider on the home page which can be removed (as most bloggers don’t prefer any slider) followed by 4 column post layouts in a grid style which is again followed by 2 column layout in a default blog style. What it seems is that the developer had very cleverly tried to give this theme a look that can be considered fit for both magazine style and blog style.
