Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been going on and on about how easy it is to use WordPress as your web site AND blog. Well, today, I decided to put my money where my mouth was.
I’ve purchased the new Thesis 1.8 theme for WordPress and have been experimenting.
I’m not at all technical, so I did have a few challenges as I stumbled my way around the theme. But the good news is that in about a day, I created what you see here. It isn’t REMOTELY in a finished state — the pictures are still drafts and I haven’t figured out how to have the thumbnails show from all my previous posts. But I didn’t let any of that hold me back — and neither should you.
Over the course of the next few months, you’re going to see a lot of changes on this site as I learn and grow with this new theme.
Thesis is an SEO Expert in a Box
I recently received an email from a marketing consultant who said that their current client had basically gotten swindled by an SEO Consultant. That’s really too bad.
The lesson is that you need to read and know enough of SEO NOT to end up paying for bad advice. The best resource I can recommend is Aaron Walls SEOBook.com. it is the Bible of SEO.
Now let’s say you can’t afford to have an SEO expert on hand every minute of the day. This is why you might consider the WordPress Thesis Theme as the engine behind your web site and blog.
- It’s very customizable. Just take a look at some of these examples of web sites and blogs on Thesis. You can do EVERYTHING and anything you heart desires.
- Powerful SEO. I’ve worked with themes that have the SEO Pack Plugin — which is a tool that allows you to insert customized Google friendly and web spider friendly keywords as Titles, and tags and meta tags so that more of your ideal customers can find you.
- Lots of experts. Because it’s a powerful and popular theme, there are lots of experts that can help you along the way. If you’re ready to get help, then I’d recommend Content Robot. They are an excellent crew and fairly affordable.
