A Fruitful Day where I turn Premium, on a Theme.
Hello WA Family,
Seeing so many of you turning either Premium yearly or going for Premium Plus, and I could only just sit on the sideline waiting next year to renew my membership, the buying mood caught on with me nevertheless.
It was a tough fight, challenging myself is it a need or a want, but alas, I think it is a half-half.
So I thought I went ahead and grab the offer to buy GeneratePress Premium theme which is on offer at $39 for an annual license compared to the usual $59.
Since I joined WA, GP has been on my mind, and perhaps on everyone's mind too.
I didn't quite like the free version as it has some limits on customization, though it is definitely functional enough.
When I first started with WA, I have no clue what is a WordPress theme and just followed Kyle's training and went to choose a theme that I like, not knowing what I'm getting into.
It is then I learned that GP is one of the best performing theme.
The theme that I am currently using usually has mobile page speed in the 80s or below so I can't say that it is very bad (I suppose).
I like the look and feel of the current theme I am using. But regardless, I got the buy-in many months back that I should switch to GP someday. Just that, the limited customization of a free GP theme means I may not be able to configure as close to what I have now, although I don't know whether I could do that even with a premium theme.
So anyway, here I am, got a bargain during Black Friday to finally purchase the GP Premium theme that I want (or need? Lol).
It will be something to keep me busy in the coming months and perhaps putting a bit more skin in the game will kick me to work on my website faster.
Besides, I have plans to create new niche websites so those will definitely go with GP.
So at $39, that is a cost savings since I'm going to create new websites anyway (I am still selling to myself to convince that I am spending wisely...)
Maybe I should see this as my Christmas present, then perhaps I won't feel so bad. But I also bought a budget mic and ring light during 11.11... what's got into me with all that spending...
I really hope I have nothing else to buy on 12.12... oh darn... I still need to buy a phantom power for my budget mic to boost the mic volume..
Anyway, wishing everyone nice days ahead. As usual, stay safe, wear masks.
