Hey there! Today I want to talk about WordPress themes for bloggers! The theme for your blog is how you express yourself and your brand. A good theme is worth the price (about $50-70 for a good working theme). Now, some themes require you to use the Genesis, or another, framework, which can double the price of your investment. But, you don’t have to do that!
My blog’s theme is not hosted on the Genesis framework or any other framework. A lot of research was put into themes, especially because I was looking into moving my blog from Blogger over to WordPress at the same time. I was looking for a theme that fit my branding that I had already redone with Creatively Lauren. Also, I was looking for something relatively affordable because I wasn’t ready to drop hundreds of dollars on a theme AND a framework.
I looked on Etsy, Creative Market, Elegant Themes, and everywhere else I could think of.
Then, I found pipdig!
Pipdig has a good selection of WordPress themes that are:
- Affordable ($59-$69)
- SEO friendly
- Free and automatic updates for life
Plus, their service is incredible! They offer free installation as well as their own “p3” plugin that offers even more customization and WordPress enhancements!
I personally chose Aruba Nights – Classic Blog for my blog because I loved the font combination and it fit the look that I was going for with my branding.
A few of my other top choices…
If you want to be taken seriously, you need a professional and aesthetically pleasing theme for your blog. It also needs to be SEO-friendly and mobile responsive since many people like to read blogs on the go!
