The presentation of your website to your readers matters a lot, presentation here means your blog layout, the way you have arranged your site, side bars, adverts, the color of your website and how you present your articles to them.
I cannot touch much on color because every person has his taste of color and the design.
That said, lets get to our topic today. I know a lot of people using WordPress would want to get a stunning website that loads at super speeds, a beautiful website that can serve ads and one with a good design, but lack the capital to get a professional developer to design them a site.
Getting a site built by a developer will cost you a lot of money, I will recommend you buy a ready made theme that you can customize even if you don’t have any coding skills.
WordPress also allows you to build a theme for yourself using third party plugins like Gutenberg, WP bakery and may others. You can customize any site to anything you want without any programming skills. By the way, some of these plugins come for free but you can upgrade to pro version according to your needs.
Even though themes are now everywhere and are expensive, you can get free responsive theme themes from authors. Themes that are not null or copyrighted to get you in trouble. Null themes are on the internet but can contain viruses that can really harm your website. I will recommend you download your theme from a trusted source.
Here are free WordPress themes you should download for your site:
Veve is a very nice theme for news and magazine websites. The free version of this theme gives you a lot flexibility, to change footer text and much more.
This theme is almost exactly a replica to world’s best selling theme called NEWSPAPER X theme from tagDiv.com. The free version comes with your own back end control panel.
You will also have an option of five different demos to choose from and install. The good thing I like about VEVE is that you are given everything a premium theme all for free.
Veve comes with a mega menu, sticky sidebar, unlimited ads space unlike many other free themes, one click installation of demos and lots of grids to choose and build your site.
Another advantageous thing is that you get 4 premium plugins; WPBAKERY Pagebuilder and Slider Revolution.
Check out Veve theme.

Though the above themes are free for use, I will recommend you either upgrade to their pro versions or you choose another different theme and purchase it as a premium theme. With a premium theme, you get updates which may help your site’s loading speed, support and unlimited usage. Unlimited usage maybe unlimited ad space, unlimited customization; you’ll have all controls.
