WordPress comes complete with thousands themes some required hundreds of hours to complete and they are available to you free with two clicks of your mouse. But because they are free the developers hold back on some key features to encourage you to purchase. Open WordPress & Go to APPEARANCE and Click THEME to browse the theme gallery.
I have spent countless hours trying to make a free theme look professional and can tell you it is not worth the time. Paid themes are inexpensive, I recommend you get a membership at theme Junkie where your have access to not one but over 30 themes for $49.00.

WHERE TO GET ARTICLES
Where does bloggers get all that great content, they buy PLR articles. PLR stands for Private Label Rights. PLR articles are a relatively new twist on content building. Private label rights are a special type of right or license which you purchase where you are legally allowed to edit and publish the article as your own. You may even include your own name as the author and your own resource box at the end of each article. PLR articles are a relatively inexpensive way to produce content for a blog. Any blogger who has been at this for a while knows that keeping a steady flow of content is not an easy thing to do. PLR articles can help to keep that flow going when you run into a period of writer’s block. The biggest advantage of PLR articles are their costs. They’re pretty cheap.
