Although there is a monthly fee, Typepad is a great platform for bloggers and business alike. If you're looking for a truly unique site, some knowledge of coding is necessary. If not, consider one of these pre-defined themes to that allow for custom colors and banners.
Themes to Consider, listed clockwise:
- Tonic: This theme comes with five classic layouts and a visually interesting background for some pop. It requires only four lines of custom CSS to make a full color change.
- Clean: This is a great option for large images and mobile devices. A lot of white space keeps it simple and you can easily add a custom banner.
- Element: Clean and simple, this theme is a one-column layout so your content becomes the main focus.
