Maybe you just started your WordPress blog or website or you’ve been at this a while. Either way, at some point, you’ll ponder WordPress themes. Thousands of choices. What to choose?
I’ve used many WordPress themes for site design over the years, on my own sites and as a web designer for others. Several years ago I found Genesis (made by StudioPress) and have used it ever since. My current theme is a Genesis theme.
Because I’m a paying customer, the links in this post are my referral links, meaning, at no additional cost to you, I will get paid a commission if you choose to make a purchase via one of my links. Thank you!
Two things I like about Genesis
- There are tons of themes to choose from (see them all here) allowing you any “look” you want.
- The themes are built well, unlike many of the thousands of WordPress themes available online, especially the free ones.
The solution to my fickleness and experimentation
I’m one of those types that likes to switch things up every once in a while, so a few years back I bought the All-Theme Package.
This gives me all the Genesis themes, both past and future, for one fixed price. I can change my mind and my design as often as I like. For me, it has paid for itself many times over. I do not recommend it for everyone though. Read on to see if it might be right for you.
I would not jump on this deal if any of these apply to you…
- You hate dealing with your theme and you have a designer who can help.
- Your current design is working well for you, you love it and you have no plans of changing it any time soon.
- You don’t have plans to start a new blog or website anytime in the near future (for an ebook, an author site, another project, etc).
- You are on a budget and/or could use the money for something else!
- You are not interested in becoming a blog or web designer.
Consider this deal if any of these apply to you…
- You’re a website/blog designer or would like to become one.
- You like to change your design regularly. (Like yours truly.)
- You would like to “test drive” different themes before you land on something long-term.
- You anticipate starting another blog or website in the future (for your book, project, product, business or special topic).
