Nice list of WordPress themes, I’m often asked about my theme and about the design of new blogs, so let me give two tips I always hand out:

1. Make your site the best reading experience you can make it.
2. You don’t want my theme because you won’t understand how to use it.

That said, I took a look at this list and if I was starting out again and didn’t know how to make my own theme, here’s the two I would be torn between:

– [Duet]( I’m not a fan of two column articles on the web, but that’s easy enough to change that I’d still go with this theme.
– [Manifest]( A close second, but I’m leery of how it would work on iOS devices compared to Duet.
