10 Fantastic Magazine Themes For Starting A Special Interest Blog

Posted on by in Blog

So you want to start a special interest wordpress blog? Of course, first you will need to decide on what it is you want to blog about, then on the type of content you’ll specialize in – i.e. long form, short form, video, photo, etc. Then, assuming you will not be designing and developing your own site, you will want to be picking out a theme. Below I’ve gathered a small but attractive collection of magazine/blog themes that fit a number of special purpose needs. I hope you enjoy them and please feel free to leave a comment below if you feel I’ve missed an especially good theme.

5. Maverick
Regular License: $30

When I look at Maverick I see a video game blog that I wouldn’t mind hanging around to read. Often times video game blogs are dark and full of black or other dark graphics that give you the impression you’ve been cooped up in the basement after you exit and navigate to a new site with a fresher design. This theme can avoid that feeling while meeting all your video game blogging needs.
