Each WordPress blog looks the way it does because it has a ‘Theme’.
The stuff that your blog is made up of, words, images, movies, links, is called content.
The Theme is the name we give for the way that
the content on your blog is designed to look.
Changing the theme will change the colours, the text, where the text is placed, and where the different content goes.
If you choose one theme your main menu might go to the right of your page, if you choose another it might be placed at the
bottom of the page.
We can use Themes to dress up your website
in different ways.

on the name of your site, a menu should drop down. Click on
