9 Mind Blowing Sites to Find Tumblr Themes

9 Mind Blowing Sites To Find Tumblr ThemesTumblr is one of the most popular and easy to use blogging sites on the internet.

Recently acquired by Yahoo! in a deal worth more than US$1 billion, the site is dedicated to both microblogging and social networking.

As it combines a blog and social networking page – which are both considered a user’s personal space on the web –many people seek to personalise their blog with their own choice of theme.

There are a number of portals offering free themes, which can help you customise your page to better suit your own personal tastes. Among the best websites for obtaining free layouts are:

1. Tumblr.com

Never forget that Tumblr offers free themes itself without the need to go to third party websites. It is true that their selection is limited. This is why many people do choose to go elsewhere when looking for a theme to personalise their page. But this doesn’t mean that it should be ignored completely. Check whether they have something to suit you before you look elsewhere.

    Thank you so much for this list! I’ve been looking for a new Tumblr theme and I’ve had no luck finding any that I like. All the good ones require that I buy them and I’m not interested in spending my hard earned money on what is essentially a customization skin.

  • Mitcher

    The cost of some of Tumblr’s nicer themes is outrageous. I mean for those prices you may as well just be paying someone to design a one-of-a-kind theme for you. Why are they so expensive anyway?

    Thanks for posting some other options. I’ve been trying to set myself up a Tumblr account but I’ve gotten hung up on the theme.

  • Dearheart

    DollieCrave has such awesome themes! I don’t know how I’ll ever be able to pick a favorite – there are so many that I love! And they are all so well done!

    I’m leaning towards using this really pretty sparkly galaxy theme… I think it really suits me because I’m a huge space geek!

  • Anise Blake

    WeDesignPixel looks like a great site for backgrounds and themes. I like that it has resources for WordPress as well as Tumblr and Twitter. I always have a hard time finding nice WordPress themes and I’m not interested in buying one for my personally blog (why bother?). Hopefully I can find a free option that looks good.

  • Lili the Dreamer

    I kind of like minimalist themes but some of these sites definitely have nice stuff. I just tend to stay away from anything too loud or cliché because I think it often looks too distracting… Though bright and busy themes can work if they’re well designed and used correctly.

    • Silver Swan

      I’m the same way, too flashy kind of makes it too chaotic in my opinion. I do agree though that these sites are really helpful and have a lot of wonderful themes that I will probably end up using.

  • Erik SK

    The Effector Theme on wedesignpixel.com is pretty much exactly what I’ve been looking for for my blog. It’s perfect! Easy to read, minimalistic, customizable and modern. Nothing too flashy or superfluous. I’m downloading it now and installing it! I’ll let you know how it works out for me.

    Thanks again! Keep it up!

  • JillShay

    The vintage themes on DollieCrave are super cute! I wish I had an active Tumblr to use one on… I’m no good at regularly blogging though. I always forget to update and I’m too shy to really put myself out there. It’s really too bad, because I found the cutest cowgirl themed layout on here!

  • Howard

    I’m not a big fan of tumblr, but I have used it for my business and so I am interested in some pro looking themes if any of these sites have them. I make all kinds of social sites for my business, even if I don’t like it. I guess you can say I’m old fashioned, but it helps to have a lot of these type of services around. :)

    Thanks for sharing friend.

    • Leslie1985

      I can see where you’re coming from. When I first heard of the site, I wasn’t too into the idea, it just felt like “been there, done that” Yet when I signed up, I really started to get into it. I can totally see it working great for business.

  • Dom Dom

    Ah dude, thanks for sharing all of these sites. I was just going to make my own theme and realized I’m better off finding some free themes out there. This way no one gets to see my horrible graphic design skills, haha! Anyways, thanks again for sharing. I checked out all of the sites and SleeplessThemes looks like my route.

  • Brandan

    2kTemplates is where it’s at for sure. I’ve been using them a lot since I started using tumblr. I don’t like themes that are overly graphical. I like simple free themes that are minimal and show a bit of class. No offense of course to anyone who likes a lot of stuff going on in their themes, I just like simple, that’s all.

  • Kimberly Jeeves

    Thank you so much for sharing this. I’ve been looking for good themes and couldn’t find any site worthy of my time. I guess I look in all the wrong places, haha! Anyways I am liking a lot of the themes these sites have, I’m going to be busy tonight.

  • Zachary

    Just started a tumblr the other day and I was one the lookout for themes and I found this site. I am going to be checking all of these out today for sure, hopefully I can find something that matches me and what I really want. Thanks for the help guys!
