What platform to build website on and theme? WordPress

Hey everyone,

I wanted to create a website very similar to these websites-

http://liftbump.com/

http://www.upworthy.com/

The concept is that they simply share stories/videos. I would like something very similar to their format. I would especially like the ability to share videos and have facebook share buttons that stand out so it is easy to share.

Please guide me on what websites these sites may have been created on. I am planning to get hosting through godaddy and build it through wordpress since I have no programming background. Please let me know if you would recommend making it through wordpress or another platform. Also please suggest various themes that may suit what I am looking for.

Thank you in advance.

If you are interested in readymade themes go for themeforest,
If you want the website created for your taste with mobile responsiveness and future proof,
then buy genesis theme and dynamik child theme, you can control anything you want.

Well if you have choosen wordpress then i guess you are on the right path. The website you shown are built in wordpress. And for a person who doesn't know how to code for him the best solution is wordpress ( doesn't mean wordpress developers doesn't need to code at all). Basically a good theme can solve most of your problem. You will just need to add your video or content as post in wordpress and publish it .Thats all what will be required from your side. Yes themeforest have dozens of good templates. This one is good http://themeforest.net/item/domag-l-flat-responsive-retina-wordpress-magazin/full_screen_preview/6893226 . Do let me know if you need any futhur help.
