Responsive WordPress themes are all the rage these days, and rightly so. While not everyone might be joining the responsive design bandwagon, there is a strong case to be made for this school of thought.

Starting something new is always quite complicated. Most people think that it is their unique product that is valued by customers, and it is hard to argue with that. But they should also understand one thing – people do not usually go far before judging you. So it does not matter if you have great content on your web page. If it looks scruffy, there is no way you will strike home.
Appearance does matter!
If you are thinking about running your own site by yourself, you probably have already thought about the design. You might have certain experience in the area, but making it from scratch is rather complicated. And it is rather natural for people to expect the results sooner than later. That is why using a ready-made template seems way more reasonable than spending much time and money on developing a new design. We are not saying it is not the way to do it – hand-crafted things are usually valued (many times) more – just don’t forget that everything comes at a certain price. Read More
WordPress certainly has a lot going for it, and themes are not the least of it. Anyone who has dabbled with the platform will know that there is a plethora of themes out there, some free, some not.

If you can write and give opinions, then you can become a blogger, no doubt. But whether you want to spend the rest of your life doing it full-time is for you to decide. That bloggers make substantial money blogging, and enough to sustain a life with that, is a bygone conclusion. If we are to believe the grapevine, America has half a million paid bloggers. As a blogger, you can work for big corporations at their offices or if you are not inclined to commute, you can work from home. That is the kind of flexibility today’s bloggers get. Read More
Most bloggers and webmasters who use WordPress understand that you need to keep their core files up to date and also update any plugins that they may have. Fortunately, WordPress makes the process of doing so very easy and painless, usually just a click away, and most users seem to do it without thinking about it.
To drive this point home, prominent WordPress core developer Mark Jaquith said in a recent talk at WordCamp Phoenix 2011 that “The themes of today are pretty much like plugins in terms of what they can do.”
In short, the functionality of themes and plugins overlap greatly as even “basic” themes include additional elements that manipulate WordPress by adding new options and settings.
However, while all of this new functionality is a great thing for bloggers, especially those who want to easily design a great site, it’s bad news for security. WordPress themes are a potential security risk, just as with any plugin, and they require maintenance and testing to make sure they are still safe.
Unfortunately, few people give their themes such weighty consideration, possibly leading to major problems down the road.
When it comes to shopping for premium WordPress themes, there are often hundreds (if not thousands) of choices users can choose from ranging from the inexpensive to a few that might break the bank.
Regardless of what your budget is, there are several things you should inquire about before purchasing the WordPress in order to avoid getting burned (even by a reputable theme designer). Read More
