Behind the scenes of WordPress Themes

If your still a wordpress beginner you need to know that they are loads of themes that you can download and modify which will fit well with your own personal brand. As a beginner myself, i took the time to explore wordpress and find ways to style my website so that it fits my own personal taste. During the process i decided to try out three themes. The three themes i selected are;

  1. Beach
  2. Non-sense
  3. Sixties

If you’ve never visited my blog this is a glance of how it looked before;
