You can change the way your blog appears and functions through Themes.

When you set up a new blog it has the theme TwentyFourteen applied as standard. Some themes are suitable for different purposes.

If you are switching themes you will lose any widgets you have set up. You can save the content of these widgets by dragging them to the Inactive Widgets section of the Widgets area of the dashboard before you change theme.

You will also have to place you menus after switching theme. your menus will be the same but they will not appear on the blog until you se their location.
