You must educate yourself before using a theme. It’s like you have bought a car and you don’t know how to drive it and you blame the car for not moving.

As I told you, almost every theme can become a simple blogging website. Just set the homepage as the blog page.

If you only need Blog WordPress theme, you need to search it on this category.

WordPress – Blog / Magazine – Personal

To add to the answers above: if you’re a blogger, you will need some of the features you mentioned, especially these days:

- retina/HiDPI ready : this means that the theme looks sharp on high resolution displays, such as Retina iPhones, iPads or MacBook Pros, as well as any other high resolution displays (mainly concerns images). More and more tablets are getting HiDPI displays + tablet sales are expected to grow 64% this year so yeah, this is a nice feature to have.

- responsive means the theme’s layout will adapt to the resolution of the display it’s being viewed on, for an optimal browsing experience. Since mobile visitors numbers are skyrocketing nowadays, this is pretty important for any serious blogger :)

The personal category is a category for simple blogs. You’re best off searching in there for a theme! :)

@playnethemes @agusmu

i searched :) just take a look http://www.labnol.org using simple theme ELEMIN by developed Themify.me as he is my competitor blogger i don’t want use same theme

and i don’t find simple theme like that on this category :) every theme is over decorated :D on themeforest and those over decorated themes are really very good for blogs with low traffic to showcase talents for a short time of period if i use anyone of those themes on a blog with 100k traffic per day definitely i will lose daily visitors

@playnethemes please check your email, are you available for freelance ?

@digitalimpact thanks for info :) i really don’t know them as the place i am living is backward still in 1980’s i never seen iPhone in real :D

It is worth noting that just because themes have all sorts of features and elements does not mean you need to use them all. If you just want the blog and about page then that’s fine just don’t show other .

Plus something as simple as what you linked above would not get into the marketplace here

Try:
http://themeforest.net/item/accord-responsive-wordpress-blog-theme/3010753?WT.ac=category_thumb&WT.seg_1=category_thumb&WT.z_author=ZERGE

http://themeforest.net/item/write-about-it-responsive-blogging-theme/4628219?WT.ac=category_thumb&WT.seg_1=category_thumb&WT.z_author=simnor

http://themeforest.net/item/remal-responsive-wordpress-blog-theme/3107487?WT.ac=category_thumb&WT.seg_1=category_thumb&WT.z_author=mo3aser

Or search this: http://themeforest.net/category/wordpress/blog-magazine/personal?page=3

All v simple and way nicer than your competitor

What I am trying to tell you that you can disable everything you don’t need in that multi purpose theme and keep only a blog.
