Templates for the new blogs

Yes, there will be new blogs. The job is now in the hands of my crackerjack project manager Matt from Simande, who sent this list of 100 free WordPress themes to look at (he'll add logos and graphics the logo designer created). I have a theme in mind from this list, but I thought I'd see if anyone else had any favorites from the list.

OK, thanks Matt. The "Modern" one on the first list might work (except for that bit of color in the top right). I'll look at a few more too.

Hi Dave,

Thanks for the list.

I just launched a blog about the stock market a few days ago so I had to go through the same process than you about selecting a wordpress theme.

The silverstar theme caught my eye with it's "magazine style". You can have a look at investlikeanentrepreneur.com

P.S. I have been blogging about stocks for two years on my french blog. My new english blog is an attempt to widen the audience...

Thanks, Philippe. David Walsh was also nice enough to suggest a template.

I was familiar with your older blog, L'Entrepreneur Boursier. Can't say I read much of it, because I have forgotten most of my high school French. Welcome to the anglo-blogosphere with your new blog though.

BTW, you may be interested in taking a look at Marc Mayor's site, Inside Alpha. He has been writing about investing primarily for a French audience as well for years.

My favorite is "Modern".

I have always customized the Blogger templates found on the web.

Modern was my favorite of that free bunch too, but I ended up going with the one from Themeforest suggested by David Walsh, Convergence.

Really? You must have good taste.
