Need Some Design Help?

When it comes to designing a website or changing my blog theme, I'm not real good at starting from scratch. I need a good template or theme that I can mess with and make my own. I need a place to start.

I'm thinking it's about time to change the theme for this blog, but I haven't found the right template to start with yet, and I know it will take more time than I really want to spend right now. I'm not using Wordpress (yet) but if I was, something like this premium wordpress theme from wpremix looks like it would be really helpful. It comes with 50 designed and coded page templates, and it sounds like it is really easy to tweak them and remix them.

Along with the templates, there are also some additional add-ons, color schemes, and tutorials. You can even make money by signing up to be an affiliate or helping people tweak their templates, if you're an expert at that kind of thing. Affiliates earn 50% on every sale, which sounds pretty good. I wonder if you sign up as an affiliate and then purchase the theme pack through your affiliate link that means it ends up costing half as much? Worth looking into, right?
