WordPress is arguably the top blogging platform AND content management system on the Web, and it’s freely available. In addition, it is robust, extensible, mostly secure, and mostly search engine optimized out of the box.

While I much prefer a paid theme myself, in the spirit of keeping things free, let’s look at a handful of WordPress themes available at no charge, to change the look and feel of your web site.
