I have read that it is a wise idea to not change your blog’s theme or design too often. While I agree you want to be known for your blog and design as a branding technique, a change in theme, additions, or subtractions to it can make a difference to your audience as well as your own perspective.
Using a free theme is fine and I have been using one for quite some time. However, I must admit with this new design it seems to look more professional and feel more professional.
I want to thank lawmacs for introducing me to Elegant Themes. I knew about these themes but didn’t really look into them until he brought them to my attention. I know many people prefer Thesis and Woo Themes, which I may consider at another time, however, for now I am pleased with this design.
Although my past theme was fair, I felt it was a little unorganized and a bit cluttered. After I would post I would look at the result on the blog and after a while, I knew it was time for a change. Although I have a theme from a paid site there are many good themes I found and thought of using that could provide that professional look, a few are listed below:
If anyone has any other ideas for making a blog more professional or themes that are great let me know or comment below!
