Often called the most versatile blogging platform on the net, WordPress has become the de facto back-end for countless bloggers. As a platform, it’s got everything a blogger needs (except writing skills), and it does come ready for use – right out of the box.

Blogs aren’t just the words contained within. The look and feel of the entire site can make or break a blog, and that means themes. There are boxed themes and sample themes, dark themes and light themes. There are themes that don’t even look like WordPress drives them anymore, but underneath it all lies the very same, very free blogging platform we all love so much.
These 17 tutorials will show an amazing diversity in the methods a blogger can employ in designing their very own WordPress blog.
