16 Impressive Free Premium WordPress Themes

Check out my new favorite WordPress theme Gonzo at my favorite place to find high end affordable WordPress themes, ThemeForest.

Many WordPress bloggers love to check out and try new WordPress themes.  One of the coolest things about WordPress blogging is that there are quite a few designers and coders who make some very cool plugins and themes for anyone to use for free.

You can spend hours or even days looking for a high quality theme to use on your blog.  One of the best places to look is on WordPress’s Featured Theme page, which you can access directly from your blog’s dashboard.  There are usually several really good-looking and highly-usable themes there.

There are countless lists of themes as well on design and WordPress blogs.  Here’s a list of some Free Premium Themes at Hongkiat.com.  I’ve been a fan of “The Morning After” (it’s third on this list) for a while now, but haven’t had a chance to use it yet.  A couple of these themes would be great for an online magazine format, or really for any other online business idea you may have.

Let me know what you think of this list?  Also, let me know what your favorite theme is.

I found another great list called the Best Free WordPress Themes of 2009.  Doesn’t “free” just have such a nice ring to it?  Some of the themes on this list, like “Bueno” by Woo Themes, are really nice looking.  If you’re looking for a theme, check out this list.

Also, see this post for a list of great WordPress resources.

    These are really great WordPress themes. I have experimented with WordPress and have found that you can control so many different aspects of your site. And I loooove using widgets and testing out new plugins. WordPress 3.0 has been very easy to integrate too. Anyways, I’m always looking for new themes. Thanks.

    I love these wordpress themes. Isn’t it amazing how easy it is to make your wp site awesome with customizable plugins and themes. I really like the elegant themes collection, which allows you to use a bunch of themes for a yearly fee.

    One of the best free wordpress themes is the one you have on your site right now! I love the colors and the spacing. Share more wordpress themes when you get a chance.
