So, coming to self hosted WordPress is actually a decision to be proud of. But, do you need to use a premium theme as soon as you start Blogging. My answer would be to wait and try some free themes. Just becuase you will have an idea of what kind of theme to purchase and use later in the future. Here are some themes that you can use as free thesis alternative for your blog.
While, I’m also a newbie. I would suggest all those new bloggers to try out some free thesis alternative and actually think about what kind of theme should they buy.
Thesis is one of the best themes ever released and used. The thesis theme have almost all the features that can take you days to enhance. But, what if you don’t have that much of money and want to know how does it feels and some of the looks of the thesis theme. We have an idea, why don’t you try these non-paid but still OK themes on your start-up blog. So, here we go. You can enhance these themes whenever you like by the CSS. But, as we all know, you will be later provided with a page with options to edit the theme if you like.
1. Swift theme
Swift theme is a magazine style theme and very much useful. It already have a pre-embedded slider which allows you to show posts, as a slideshow. Earlier published on this blog, a post tells you about the premium swift theme. But, there is also a free one.

The Techmaish theme was also launched by a personal blog and have a great look just like you can see in the Thesis themes. You don’t need to enhance it more as it is already very modified.
The mantra theme is the best of these all with a pre-provided menu to change the settings of the theme. You don’t have to touch the CSS in this theme as it provides with it’s own menu to do that.
The theme is very good looking and allows you to display your niche correctly among others. One of the chief features of this theme is that it is free and still very useful.

I don’t say that these themes are the best. But, hey! they don’t cost you a penny. And as our elders tell us to have some experience about what we are going to buy. We would tell you to try them a bit, then getting some experience from these thesis alternatives, you will have the idea of which one to buy. And an experience about needs, more than just looks.
Please leave a comment of which one would you use if you were a newbie. Thanks for reading and keep coming 🙂
