I sifted through all the Wordpress themes I could find and below I listed my top 10 simple, minimalistic and unique Wordpress Blog Themes.

Ok, so I lied. I posted 11 Simple, Unique, Minimalistic WordPress Blog Themes for 2012.  I just couldn’t leave out my favourite WordPress Theme which is Thesis.   If I had to choose 2 themes from the above list of Wordpress Themes, I would choose Thesis and Standard.  I value the simplicity and cleanliness of their designs while maintaining a strong core set of functionality. Amazing SEO, fast load times and maximum flexibility within the theme for ease of customization are also key elements in determining the best WordPress theme to use for my site. If I had to chose only one theme, you know which one I already chose – Thesis.  🙂
