New blog design: I need one

Ever since I moved Report This! to WordPress a couple years ago, my now-tired Minama Plus theme has served me well. But I envision this blog getting a makeover soon presumably through a new theme. There are several excellent ones out there (notice: not all are free), but which one and all the time involved in switching over is a pain.

Anyone have any suggestions for good themes? Also, locations on the Web for instructions on how to change a theme without going mad with frustation? Or better yet, is anyone even reading this? 🙂
