In The Immortal Words Of Brittney Spears, "Oops I Did It Again"!
I once again allowed myself to get chin deep into paralysis by analysis! This time concerning updating my website and theme !
It's been a while since something so simple took me behind the woodshed for a whooping!
Every Theme Is The Best!
I have determined that every theme is the best ! At least if you listen to reviews on the subject and the affiliates who promote these themes! ARRG!
I have bought 2 themes and found out afterward that neither were what I wanted! I was however lucky enough to get a refund on the one, and the other I'm not too worried about because it was a subscription based plan and I only lost a month!
The most important thing I lost was time!
I'm not going to complain too much, but I lost at least enough time for 3 blog posts and reviews during the time In have been chasing themes !
My main criteria were:
- Speed (SEO)
- Easy custoimizing
- Multiple sites
- Newbie friendly (I like to build a website to house my content and want it to look good, but I will never be a web designer because that doesn't interest me ! I want to blog, pump out content and do reviews!
Too much info!
I found myself chin deep in confusion and became irritated by this stuff!
I almost decided to just stick with my free theme I started with, but it is hurting my SEO bad, and I think it looks horrible !
Thank goodness for Jay's video!
I watched Jay's webinar on themes and decided that I would go with one of the ones in his webinar......but I didn't! I did however learn some things that made the decision much easier and took a ton of the analysis out of it!
When I watched the webinar I was so confused that I didn't know whether to scratch my watch or wind my butt!
But watching Jay and his laid back style as he explained a few things made things much easier! Well that and a pint of Jim Beam!
I was just kidding about the Pint of Jim Beam! It was only a glass of chocolate milk! LOL It just doesn't have the same gritty impact that grinding away with a bottle of whiskey does!
My Decision has been made......THANK GOD!
I hate to let something so simple whip my butt!
I ended up deciding on the ASTRA theme ! (No I am not an affiliate......yet! LOL
When all was said and done it fit every criteria I had set and I can use it on a bunch of websites!
I just wanted to share this with you guys because some of you are likely trying to decide as well!
If you have any questions feel free to PM me ! It might be a day or so before I can get back because I'm out of chocolate milk at this time !
Best of success!
