I have always been of the opinion that WordPress 2-column themes give your site a much better look than 3-column themes, and I think if you look around the blogosphere at what most full time bloggers use, you will see that these people tend to find the most success with 2-column themes.

There are definitely a lot of brilliant and useful 2-column themes available for WordPress users, so I figured that I would throw together a post compiling screen shots and links to some of the best 2-column themes available:

  25. I tend to favor two column layouts. They are much cleaner and focus on the content, instead of 3 columns scrunched together…
