How to Select the Perfect WordPress Theme for Your Blog

Choosing the perfect WordPress theme for your blog can be really stressful but one cannot undermine its need. One must consider a lot of things while choosing the appropriate name for his/her blog. No doubt that choosing the right name for your blog is extremely important but selecting the right theme for your blog is also of equal importance. Many people focus on choosing the appropriate name for their blog and underestimate the need for the right theme. They do not realise its importance in the short term but as the time passes by, they understand what is at stake.

There are a lot of things that one should consider before applying a particular theme to your blog like size of the header or footer, how many columns you need on the left or right, how many rows available, size of the page, colour combination should match your blog’s logo (if any) and size of tabs.
