If you’ve been looking for a free or even inexpensive WordPress theme for a while, it probably didn’t take you long to see the 20 or so themes that make just about every single blog’s list of free themes. You’ve also probably noticed that if you’re not already sick and tired of seeing a particular design all over the internet – the remaining WordPress themes on the list are kind of dull. Enter: this post. I’ve done my best to slice through the most duplicated and/or lame free WordPress themes commonly posted to put together what I believe are 10 “almost-too-good-to-be-true” free WordPress themes. Enjoy!

4. Busby

Busby is a clean personal blog design that has a short form look about it. If not for the large right side bar that screams WordPress this could almost be a tumblr style theme. An attractive combination for showcasing personal posts in short form.

A good-looking educational site is rare to come across. Not quite so rare as a good looking government site, but still it’s not common. If you’re looking to give your school’s page a facelift for free you might want to give Academica a try.
