  1. Sadly I’m not on WordPress but these designs look really interesting and fits different personalities. I’m sure there’s something for everyone out there.

  2. Great themes for WordPress. I am actually looking for a theme for my blog, I haven’t yet settled on one I like. I have been trying out some free versions before I can settle and purchase one. These are very helpful.

    • The ones listed are just the best sellers from Themeforest. Yes, Ocean is a quality theme. I use Elementor quite a bit and while it’s got its own minimalist “Hello” theme, I see many combining it with Ocean, Astra or GeneratePress themes.
