I am a newbie to Wordpress and have set up a hosted blog with wordpress but the default theme is not what i am looking for. I am looking for a theme that is SEO optimised and then also have the ability to have rss feed, add email subscriber and option of users to retweet/facebook like.
Can you suggest a theme/template that will have these features builtin and also looking for a good source where i can read and learn about setting up my blog effectively like changing the appearance, using plugins and widgets.
You response is highly appreciated
You should checkout http://wordpress.stackexchange.com - a site like answers.onstartups.com, but focused on WordPress.
As for themes, I use the following 3 sites and love them all:
http://www.elegantthemes.com http://www.themeforest.com (sort by WordPress)
