I’ve worked on over a hundred WordPress sites for my own use, and for client use. Although used dozens of themes over the years, there are only a select few I would recommend without hesitation.
I recommend this theme if videos are going to be a big part of your content marketing strategy.
I’ve modified many of the pages with Elementor to give it a more custom look and feel.
This theme has great Schema Markup and is Pinterest ready. It’s by far the best theme I’ve found for food bloggers.
I recommend the Astra theme, if you want a simple yet flexible theme, or are interested in ready-made templates to help you get started.
