What is a WordPress theme?

WordPress themes are like a cake. They’re usually pretty good right out of the oven. However, you can also add icing on the cake to make it extra special.

Think of the icing as your website layout, fonts, logo, and colours. All you have to decide on is the base flavor you want from the cake. This is the general layout and look of your site, which is pre-built by a WordPress developer.

If you own a restaurant, you can search for “restaurant themes” and if you are a writer, you can look for “writer” or “freelancer” themes. These themes will have the pages and layouts needed for your specific business.  

You don’t have to bake them yourself from scratch (a.k.a writing the code and designing the site).

Making the Site Yours

Once you’ve found a good theme that fits your requirements, you simply need to customize it to make it yours. You can find a theme for almost any design style or business niche in the WordPress marketplace.

The best part? There are a ton of free options.

So, if you’re just looking to make your start and get your business online for the first time, you don’t have to fork over any cash to do it.
