Every freelance writer should have a website, and building a website using WordPress.org is perfect for making your life easy, boosting search engine optimization efforts, and looking great.
What’s the first thing people do when they receive your query letter, resume, or email? They Google you. You need to make sure your website, blog, Facebook profile, Twitter profile, and every other online touchpoint accurately reflects who you are and what you can do for potential employers and clients. Ultimately, all roads should lead back to your core branded online destination — your website.
How do you find a great WordPress theme to use to build your site? There are so many to choose from! Whether you hire a blog designer to help you or you dive into WordPress yourself, you need a great premium theme to start with. Check out the five themes below, which are affordable, well-coded, and look great for freelance writer websites!

I like the Feature Pitch theme because you can get really creative with how you use the home page to draw visitors into your site to learn more about you.

Fresh Folio is another portfolio theme from WooThemes, but it has a simpler look to it than the SophisticatedFolio theme does.
