Now that your blog is installed, you want it to look nice. Oftentimes, your web designer can match your blog to your site for a reasonable fee.

Blogger comes with many themes ready to go, and WordPress offers many within the WordPress installation Appearance / Themes area to choose from. A quick search for WordPress or Blogger themes will gather plenty of results, both free and paid. One of the more popular ones is found at http://themes.wordpress.net

If the Theme that you are installing provides instructions, be sure to read through and follow those instructions for the successful installation of the Theme. It is recommended that Theme developers provide installation instructions for their own Themes, because Themes can provide special optional functionality that may require more steps than the basic installation steps covered here. If your Theme does not work after following any provided instructions, please contact the Theme author for help.
