Beginners Questions regarding PSD to WordPress

I have a blog which I have been running for a few years and I have decided to update the theme. None of the themes I have found online meet my requirements/design ideas so I am planning on asking someone to create a PSD which I will then get converted into WordPress. But there are so many things I don’t fully understand…. Please help 🙂

1. Normally themes get updates for security etc – what will happen to my newly created personal theme?
2. What is the PSD design built on – presumably there is a vanilla theme underneath with all the basic structure etc and its just the ‘paint’ I am adding outside?
3. So I create a new homepage and a few internal pages using my lovely PSD file and it has a number of blog posts on the homepage… What happens when I create a new blog post ? Is this new PSD to wordpress file static or will the homepage update like a normal theme I might purchase from themeforest and add the new blog post on the homepage?

Sorry I’ve tried searching and can’t find the answer!

Thank you in advance.

  1. You could spend an awful lot of money getting this right, even with a cheap freelancer. For your requirements i would seriously suggest you research the themes available and see if they can get to 70-80% of where you want to be before paying anyone. Cos honestly, even if you do pay someone you aint getting much closer than that to your dream.
