    I am starting a blog, my goal is to make it like the huffington
    post.com
    . That site uses movable type, I will use wordpress. I been looking for a template that has the same newspaper-ish element like the huffington post has. I would really appreciate any help, if anyone can tell me where I can get a template that looks like the huffington post or has the same layout. another blog that has the same layout is techtear.com I don't have any money to pay a designer, thats why I am asking if anyone can help me, please.

    thanks in advance,

    I'm not a WordPress fundi by any stretch of the imagination, but I do work for a newspaper, and really, you can make nearly any theme look like one.

    I think your best bet might be something with two sidebars, like the theme used by http://www.43folders.com, which is either some form of Hemingway or Cutline.

    But really, all you need is a big headline font (Impact for something tabloidy, Georgia for something broadsheetish), something smaller for subheads and plenty of white space around the columns of text to give it the proper feel.

    You might take a look at http://www.briangardner.com, he has just released a theme called Revolution that is designed to be used for content management. Also, check out his Blue Zinfandel theme - that's the one that I adapted for my wife's community news blog.
