Free themes for basic WordPress blogs from Templatelite.com

Some people do a lot more than blog with their self-hosted WordPress sites. They use them as online stores, to promote their cause or to show off their photography skills.

Then there are those who use their self-hosted WordPress sites just to keep an online journal of what's going on in their lives or with particular projects they're involved in/with.

For example, a person who enjoys cooking may post an image of a new dish and the recipe for the dish every other day, or a person going through some life-transforming illness may just want to write about his/her day-to-day thoughts, struggles and triumphs as his/her own therapy. Some bloggers may want to write about their day-to-day experiences on a special trip, like their first seven-day cruise.

For simple, self-hosted WordPress bloggers, themes from Templatelite.com are perfect.

Templatelite offers basic and free WordPress themes for those who just want to blog. You don't have to pay anything for the themes, but you can pay a fee to buy a theme's PSD file or to have the unobtrusive ad links removed from the footer of the theme.

What follows is just a small sampling of what Templatelite has to offer. Please visit the site to see all their beautiful, basic blogging themes: http://www.templatelite.com.
