Where can you find a simple Word Press theme?

10-change-life-any-ageSeveral clients have asked me Where can I find a simple Word Press theme for a beginner?  One that doesn’t require you to be an expert in HTML, CSS or PHP and doesn’t costs an arm and leg!”

And the first thing I ask them is do you know what you want or don’t want for your website?”  It is important to know this before you begin your search for a theme.  If you haven’t created a list of “must haves” for your theme, I recommend taking a few moments to do so.  If you’re not sure what you must have, make a list of things you know you don’t want.  Trust me, this will keep you from wasting your valuable time.

Now the next thing to think about is whether you want to go with a Free or Premiumtheme.  What’s the difference – well you get what you pay for.  Now I’m not knocking Free themes, they’re great but if you are building a business website I recommend going with a Premium theme.  Premium themes are usually well supported, have detailed documentation and provide an online support site for Q&A and specific issues.  It is easy to jump on to the support site and get your questions answered or issues resolved quickly.

Ok, if you’re feeling ambitious you could start by Googling “simple Word Press themes“.  But then you would spend an afternoon searching through pages and pages of choices!  I don’t know about you but I don’t have an afternoon to spend looking at themes!

  3. In these days of austerity and relative panic about taking on debt, most people balk about the idea of employing a credit card to make purchase of merchandise or perhaps pay for a holiday, preferring, instead to rely on a tried and also trusted technique of making repayment – cash. However, in case you have the cash available to make the purchase in whole, then, paradoxically, that’s the best time to be able to use the cards for several good reasons.
