My website is currently setup as a blog, where there are categories and post within them. However I want to create a separate page where I can discuss news, ideas, and thoughts, while having a different theme.

Richard, do you have more information such as blog software you are using? As well, I understand what you are seeking, but this is too open ended in my book. Do you have a more specific question? Can you narrow this down and add some information so someone can help you? Otherwise, we would be guessing and offering opinions. –  closetnoc Apr 9 '14 at 2:26
Hi closetnoc, I am currently using Wordpress. My site consist of categories and post that are relevant to those categories. I want to add a separate page where I can discuss news, information, and random thoughts that pertain to the topic of my site. I was going to add it on a subdomain, but apparently that is not good SEO practice. So I am opting to create a subfolder for my blog. However, I want to know if I can create a new theme for this subfolder? In short: Create a blog subfolder, blog has different theme than main site. –  Richard.S Apr 9 '14 at 4:26
So you can create pages in Wordpress and make it use a different template... If you're unsure how to do that, I'd suggest checking in over at Wordpress SE. –  zigojacko Apr 9 '14 at 6:44
Perfect! Unfortunately, I know nothing about WordPress. But your explanation is perfect. I am sure someone will be able to help. –  closetnoc Apr 9 '14 at 14:33
Often the themes offer various design options, that the admin can use. The other option is to use plugins such as wordpress.org/plugins/dx-template-manager/screenshots –  Deyan Totev May 14 '14 at 17:05
