PixelPower

PixelPower, WordPress Creative Personal Blog Theme

PixelPower is a WordPress creative theme that works really well for portfolios, blogs and more.  For more creative WordPress themes, check out this collection.  Pixel power is a clean and modern WordPress Tumblog style theme that I think works great for personal bloggers and portfolio sites. This perfectly responsive theme adapts its layout to all screen sizes. While it is not a mobile-first design, it still displays perfectly on all size and shape screens.

Now, some of the bad news. Well this theme has exactly a 4.5 rating, which is the bare minimum that we used to recommend themes, it has not been updated in almost six years. Frankly, that is not acceptable to me. In fact, I think that WordPress themes absolutely must be updated quite often. The reason is security. WordPress is continuously updating its code and hackers are continuously working on ways to defeat that code. If you leave yourself open to attack, you could easily have your website hacked and that is not a good feeling, believe me. Now, if you are quite experienced with WordPress, you can always take care of those updates yourself, but I don’t believe that that is something that you should have to do. I think that you should be able to count on the developer to update their site to keep it relevant, to get rid of bugs, to keep it secure and to provide continuing support for new features.

Anyway, this is a look at this template, it has a distinct look that is very reminiscent of Tumblr. Tumblr seems a bit outdated to me, to be perfectly honest, but some people are still looking for that style. If that’s you, you’re in luck. Assuming you’re steady and knowledgeable WordPress user.  Okay, check out more WordPress personal blog themes in our full collection.  It’s the place to find the absolute best personal blog themes anywhere.

FastBlog

FastBlog, WordPress SEO Optimized Personal Blog Theme

This theme is called Fast Blog, it’s a really interesting looking theme that has, honestly, a bit of a retro or throwback look about it.  Maybe it’s for you, maybe not?  The point is, it’s a really solid choice for many webmasters.  Fast Blog has some features that are reminiscent of Tumblr, which is really interesting.  If that’s still a style you want to emulate, then this is a great choice.  Fast Blog works really well as a more traditional blog theme too.  Six post types are included, article post type, images and links, audio and video post types and, finally, quote post types.  That’s pretty much exactly what Tumblr includes, right?

Want to see a few more personal blog WordPress themes?  Our collection is a really solid place to start.  This theme has over one hundred and six different social media icons, five short codes with over 100 different variations, a full-width page template and Ajax powered contact form, just to name a few. Fast blog is certainly one of the oldest themes that I would still recommend, it was released in 2010. As such, it is sort of a throwback to an older era, or more simpler time of WordPress. But, I think that it is still going strong and worthy of consideration.

X

X WordPress Tumblr Style Theme

Despite its enigmatic name, the X WordPress theme has won kudos as one that is very non-coder-friendly since even those with no knowledge in web design and coding can use it to make highly-responsive and attractive websites. One of the things that make it stand out is the sheer number of extensions it comes with, which are designed to greatly improve site functionality. More code-savvy users will appreciate its clean code, which eliminates unnecessary code that can cause the site to load slowly. It is a great theme for both amateur and professional web developers. The package comes with four unique designs (called “stacks”) that come with their own unique skins, functionality, features and styles. But, don’t worry; these stacks are customizable simply by overwriting the styling using a child theme that you create. Each stack is designed to be most effective for particular users, although anyone can use them. The Integrity stack, for instance, is best for entrepreneurs and small business owners since it is multifunctional and can be adopted for a host of requirements. Each stack has its own demo content, which you can download so that it can be quickly applied to the website you’re designing; there are 33 demos in all that you can choose from.

X features a proprietary page builder tool dubbed Cornerstone. Cornerstone is designed to be intuitive and easy to use, so that anybody can use it to create custom page layouts. The newest version comes with a host of new extensions, including UberMenu, Superfly, Typekit Integration, ConvertPlug, Envira Gallery, Essential Goal and Content Dock, for no extra cost. There are also plug-ins for integrating the site with Google Analytics, Facebook Comments and MailChimp. Other features include free support and updates, 20 training videos on Internet marketing, 400 vectorized icon fonts, 41 built-in short-codes and video and text tutorials on WordPress and how to use WordPress themes.
