This free video will show you how to install a WordPress theme:

This is a 7-minute video about how to choose a theme (or design) for your blog. We cover:

  • What is a theme?
  • Where can you get one?
  • How much do themes cost?
  • Is it better to get a free theme or pay for one?


  • Colors and layout are harder to change. Headers are easier to change. Pick a theme with the color and layout you like and don’t worry about the header — you can always hire a designer to customize it later!
  • Free vs. paid themes is a hot topic among bloggers. I currently use a paid theme from WooThemes on, but it’s perfectly okay to start out your blog with a free theme. If you find a paid theme you love, it’s okay to go that route, too!
