End of Shirking: 20 Free WordPress Themes Fresh from September 2014

No Picture

In between summer and fall, one can easily get surprised while wearing a t-shirt outside. I chuckled quite a few times already. It is then when I like my office most. Sitting in front of the computer with its warm glow, working on WordPress projects harder than ever – well, at least harder than ever since the middle of spring. WordPress is just that kind of a convenient CMS that can get you up and running in no time. Probably that way I can catch up with all the work I have been negligent of. Wait, would I not be quicker if I took a ready-made theme to accelerate things? Lucky me, as Noupe continues with their monthly series of the freshest WordPress themes for self-hosted sites.

All the new additions are fully responsive, a trend that has been growing fast with no signs of slowing down. I hope you like what they found. I know I do. All these themes are free, though some have commercial variants available. The fine people at Noupe stated that where applicable. Enjoy!
