Hi Kumar,
Very comprehensive post and nicely done up tutorial :)
I think anyone wanting to install a WordPress theme should come to this post and check out the details as you have covered the major part of how the process starts. Not to mention the best themes mentioned here too.
It reminded me of the time when I switched from Blogger to WP and the tough time I had because I had NO idea about WP, as it was a totally new platform for me. Moreover, the themes are often confusing, though I think the main ones are Genesis and Thesis, but that also depends on your personal preference and choice, and what theme you like eventually. Those who are good in SEO and coding, I guess go in for Thesis, and I too was advised for that. So, my writer’s blog is on that and I did have a tough time with some codes but I managed, though a lot more to learn to do in that one. Genesis was what my present blog was earlier on, but I still wasn’t able to get the kind of look for my blog I was wanting, so I changed to the present one and am finally happy with it now.
Thanks for sharing, and we look forward to more of such How-To posts and tutorials.

At present Harleena Singh have 2 blogs in WordPress. One is on LifeStyle and another one her personal blog.
