5 Best Minimalist Blog / Magazine WordPress Themes for 2014

There are so many great looking WordPress themes on ThemeForest. However, a theme which looks great does not necessarily mean that it’s working. Before you purchase the theme, you might want to check the “comments” section of the theme page to make sure that there isn’t any serious complaints about the theme.

So far, I have contacted ThemeForest twice about theme problems, but they never seem to be able to reproduce the errors that I encountered, maybe it’s just my bad luck, lol.

Anyway, here are some of my favourite WordPress themes for this month. So, which ones did I buy?


Fast News- Stylish WordPress Theme ($45, Last Update: 8 November 13) – Fast News is a straightforward and feature-rich magazine WordPress theme. Fast News has been built by using some of the most popular current design trends as HTML5, CSS 3, jQuery. Fully responsive, it has really great look and is very attractive on any device. This one reminds me of Max Mag, a 3 column theme with ample space for a 300×600 AdSense ad.
