There are hundreds of WordPress premium themes available for selection. However, two WordPress themes stand out for starting a blog.  

  • Genesis: Has only a premium version. The good thing about genesis is that it requires a one-time payment, and you will receive lifetime updates for free. It is ideal if you are looking for a simple WordPress theme. One of the most successful blogs that uses Genesis theme is WPBeginner.
  • Astra: Has a free and premium version. The premium version of Astra is recommended if you are looking for a blogging theme with more customization options and templates. Astra is a multipurpose theme which means that you can also use it to build your eCommerce site, organization website, or portfolio website. The downside of Astra pro is that you must renew the license annually to get updates. Some of the most successful blogs that use Astra theme are Smartblogger, Shoutmeloud, etc. 


Genesis and Astra are all SEO optimized, schema markup ready, Mobile responsive, lightweight, and regularly updated.
