    Starting a blog is a great way to share a personal interest and to connect with like-minded individuals. Many people choose to start with a standard template and then decide they want something to make them stand out a bit more. Finding a free fully customizable WordPress theme is the holy grail of blogging for many bloggers.

    Cutline Theme

    There are actually several versions of the Cutline theme available and all are pretty fantastic. The theme has three columns and different images can be added to various pages, for a total of five images. This allows you to personalize the theme to a great extent. The CSS coding is simple to navigate and changing font colors, font size, and the background color is a cinch.

    Neoclassical Theme

    Another three column customizable theme, Neoclassical, is a gem. The header image for this template is larger than the one found in Cutline. The images here can also be selected and randomized. Again, the coding is clean and easy to alter.

    Copyblogger Theme

    Copyblogger is one of the most popular blogs around, and the customizable theme that made it all possible is free for anyone to use. SEO performance is key with this three columned theme and while text can be resized the size ratio remains the same to create uniform and easy to read text. This theme is so easy to customize because it has a folder just for that purpose.

    Gear Theme

    There are a number of items that can be customized with the two column Gear theme including the banner image, visibility, text, and background. Additionally multiple languages are supported on this theme, making it ideal for individuals whose native language is not English. Atahualpa Theme The Atahualpa theme has hundreds of theme options available in drop down menus. This makes it slightly easier to customize than the themes that require CSS changes. One of the things that makes this theme unique is the ability to make it one, two, or three columns. Other options that can be customized include colors, header images, and header size.
