    The only themes we can use on free hosted blogs like your blog are the themes found here

    There is no FTP access to free hosted blogs and we cannot upload any third party themes, create child themes or our own themes or edit templates.

    There is no upgrade you can purchase that changes that. Please read > offers free software that you can install on a web server. You can upload and install themes and plugins, run ads, and edit the database. Learn about the differences here.
