    I really like Vintage and Manifest. I can’t want to start my next blog so I can use one of them. Or maybe I’ll change one I already have. Thank you for your lists.

    IMO the best theme out there is Freemium, I used it for few months before redesigning the site on my own. Big recommendations from me!

    Otherwise a good selection of themes.

    Good list, but you’re missing 1 critical theme. That is Suffusion by Sayontan Sinha.

    I’m running it on my technology blog THE Tech Scoop (http://www.thetechscoop.net) and absolutely love it.

    To download the theme go here: http://foxyurl.com/ML2
