My initial template looks a bit of a mess , I should have opted for a blog template at the start. Can I change templates easily? Is my content safe?

changing your theme will not remove any content...
what you may have to do is to re add your logo and other bits of styling...
it may be worth trying the theme out in a siterubix test site first and see what it can do ...maybe put your old theme in there and then 'upgrade' to the new one to reduce the number of suprises....
but the change is easy enough as Abie or aj has detailed...

if i could recommend a theme i would go with either astra or neve

good luck

Hi

Appearance > Themes and add new. Input a keyword, and when you find what you are looking for, install and activate.

You content will remain intact, however you may lose on some CSS and possibly social media icons. However, a bit of tweaking and you're done.

I would also keep a back up theme for example the Twenty Twenty One.
