Choosing a multi-purpose WordPress theme has multiple undeniable benefits. One blogger can be building more than one website on more than one niche and purpose. If anything, it is quite common to run more than one blog at a time. If you are planning to build multiple websites of different styles and purposes, but don’t want to spend too much time choosing a theme, why not choose a multi-purpose theme instead?

What are the benefits of using multi-purpose WordPress themes? One is that you would be significantly reducing the time you spend learning how to use and customize a theme. When you already have a layout and design in mind, it is so much easier to navigate through a theme you have already used before. Also, multi-purpose themes are so customizable. We’re pretty sure readers would not even know you are using the same themes over and over again!

Here are the best multi-purpose WordPress themes to use for 2022:
