Go back to school with these WordPress Themes - Heart Internet Blog - Focusing on all aspects of the web

Unfortunately, the summer is over and it’s time to go back to school. Whether walking Year 1s to their classrooms, or waving goodbye to a university student, it’s a time when people are reflecting on their own school days and recording the events to make even more memories.

If you’re starting something new this school year, creating a blog is a great way to keep track of your thoughts, feelings, and events that occur over the year. And a good theme is a great way to get noticed.

      Yeah, these are all .org themes. You need to download them from the site and then upload them into your own WordPress installation.

      There are some really nice ones on the .com, but those are designed to be used only on WordPress.com.
