Google is the most popular search engine and contains almost everything you are looking for. In the case of finding the best template, Google is also beside you.

So I advise you to search the name of your "blog" and then add temple after that and get the suggestions from Google.

2. Free theme or premium theme?

We all know there are thousands of free themes as well as lots of premium themes available. Premium are those which costs some money and provide better services. In case of creating a unique site, I will advise you to select a premium theme. But free themes are also well compatible with most of your necessary. Always keep a fact in mind that a premium can't always be a quality theme.

3. Make a list of the most wanted features and harmonize them with the chosen themes

You may have some personal choice about features. Sometimes you need the theme which is WPML ready or which has lots of homepages album, or an attractive gallery. Your target is to get as many necessary features you can catch from a theme.
