http://themeit.com/best-wordpress-personal-blog-themes/

If you need a one-page website to showcase your resume, portfolio, projects or products, the ME WordPress theme offers amazing capability without the complexity of learning design code or site development. Although you get the powerful Bootstrap 3 framework and up-to-date code, you never have to worry about any of that when you use the professional-quality customization options panel. No matter what layouts or elements you choose to include, the entire site will be responsive for easy viewing on smartphones screens, desktop monitors and everything in between. Parallax scrolling JavaScript is included with the ME WP theme package.

This theme offers a simple design, plenty of features and a whole lot of support and documentation to go along with it.  Me is flawlessly responsive so it looks incredible on any device, has a powerful portfolio system with the ability to filter content based on categories.  An elegant, classy and minimal style helps set your content off in an attractive way.  Over 2,500 people have purchased Me so far, so Magna Themes must be doing plenty right.

Hi there! This is the WordPress version of the five star rated html template called “Me”. It designed and built with user experience in mind! It is an easy-to-use wordpress theme with detailed documentation, and tutorial videos. If you need a website to showcase your work, just buy Me:)

Well, it’s just a single page theme, but sometimes you don’t need more than that, am I right?  Here’s the portfolio area.

Services page is here.

And the about page here.  I’d love to see what somebody could do with this theme as a personal blog site.

This theme has been around for about 5 years now and it’s still doing well in sales.  It’s just passed the 3000 mark in fact, a real milestone.  The rating is over 4.5, which is sort of the bare minimum for recommending a theme.  One thing I’ll add, I love that this theme doesn’t use Visual Composer.  And I’ll bet you a Big Gulp it loads up fast.

Whattya know, no Visual Composer means a super fast load time.  It’s like a trend.

So, simple and fast, priced right at just $34 for a single license, functional and easy to use, this ‘Me’ theme is a big winner and one I can still recommend for anyone who needs a simple, minimalist site that’s functional and attractive.

Webly, Elegant Themes WordPress Blog Template

http://themeit.com/best-wordpress-video-themes/

Say hello, Webly.

Hello Webly.

Oh my, we’re off to a dumb start.  Moving on.  This is Webly, from Elegant Themes.  Elegant Themes are most well known for their theme called Divi, (or their other theme, Extra) which is all about flexibility.  It’s a massive page builder with tons of features and it’s worth the money, but I also recommend Elegant Themes’ other offerings that aren’t so packed with bells and whistles.  One such theme is Webly.

Webly is simple.  It maybe stands to reason, since it’s been around for a while now, but Webly just *looks* different than some other themes out there.  Webly isn’t bashing you over the head with clean, flat designs.  It’s not looking to have every single possible use.  It is what it is.

Elegant Themes has this to say about Webly.

Webly is a professional theme with just enough charm and whimsy to give your website that fun and unique edge. With powerful tools, such as the multimedia slider and content bar on the homepage, Webly provides you with creative ways to engage your visitors. If you are looking for creative theme that will make your business stand out from the crowd, then look no further!

So, yeah, since this is from Elegant Themes, it’s hard to find user reviews that aren’t actually *from* the Elegant Themes website.  It’s not like Theme Forest where you can read the comments and see who says what.  What the known issues are.

I can say this though, I’ve been a subscriber to Elegant Themes in the past and they’re great to deal with.  They offer good support and the documentation is really strong.  Webly is a fast loadng theme, because it’s not overloaded with useless code that nobody needs or wants.  It’s easy to navigate from page to page, the images are well framed. Webly is responsive and that goes a long way to making this one of the better themes around for your next website.

Strong recommend.

Well, not that much.  In Fashion has now been downloaded over 500 times, which is probably the biggest difference.  And the rating is still pretty high, just a few ticks under 4.5 overall.  Some folks have run into issues with installing this theme, but it appears the developer stands behind their product and is willing to help out as much as they can.  Overall, inFashion is still a great choice for a fashion magazine and eCommerce site.
