Twenty Twelve WordPress Theme Review

Hey guys, today I’m going to be talking about the highly anticipated release of the Twenty Twelve WordPress theme.

First of, I would just like to announce that the theme has been made available on sites hosted on WordPress.com, and you can check out the demo of the fantastic looking theme right here. This theme looks fantastic, and the thing I like about it is that WordPress.com looks at the whole Blogosphere and recognizes that there are people looking to create professional WordPress themes, so good on you guys, WordPress!

It’s free, and it’s the new default WordPress theme when you sign up for a brand new WordPress blog. Personally, I think it looks really clean, elegant and well-rounded in terms of features. It boasts of excellent customizability, and it is something that we will see a lot more people use in the very near future.

It is not quite available for people who have self-hosted WordPress blogs just yet, although one would think that the WordPress 3.5 update is coming up really soon, with the Twenty Twelve theme set to be unveiled to the general public at that time.

Stage 2, Part 2: Choosing Your Theme

Choosing your theme is very important, and I know that people on the internet want to try and make money – whilst spending as little money as possible as well, so here will be the page where I will share the many free themes that look great!

This will be my ‘home’ for themes. The go to page for all things themes on my blog. I’ll have one great theme that I would recommend on a particular sub-topic, and then I will make a page out of the sub-topic, so you can browse more themes that could fit your blog.

(note: this is still a work in progress, the pages aren’t up just yet, but it will within a few weeks)

  • Personal Blog

WordPress Theme: Journal Crunch

A free, WordPress theme that is great for personal blogs because it does have that casual yet professional feel to it. Great in catering the needs of photographers as well – with the featured images feature as well – really goes down well with those type of bloggers. Furthermore, the theme is generally well rounded and drop down menus as well. The top WordPress FREE theme for your WordPress blog.

  • Hybrids

  • WordPress Theme: Vintage and Blues

A theme that you can really use for anything. From building a news site to quite simply doing a personal blog, there is a lot of things you can actually do with this theme. A WordPress theme that I would recommend for people new to advertising as well.

  • Magazine Themes

WordPress theme: Scarlett

A great magazine theme, fitted with a slider that slides automatically along with a wicked looking design. Looks fantastic, and should be what you install if you’re looking for a Magazine theme for your WordPress site.

  • News Sites

WordPress Theme: Premium News

What can I say? WooThemes framework, fantastic SEO ready made set-up, fantastic looking theme, the ability to easily customize, lots of awesome featured post settings, and it just makes for a fantastic theme for you to have. Had this on a blog of mine, and it really did attract a lot of positive comments.
