We designers have been increasingly deployed these days to design blogs. Just like website template sites there are a lot of free and paid blog templates available out there that people can simply install. But the need for good customised blog theme design is huge. As this is a relatively new development in design field not a lot of web designers are equipped to handle eth PHP side of things, which most blogging platforms use. Wordpress solves all those worries.
