Choosing the right theme can be seriously confusing
As a dedicated wordpress user, I have recently shifted to self hosted blog after much deliberation in my mind while trying to control my apprehensions and anxieties of doing so. After shifting to the self hosted blog, I was by default directed to the large library of premium themes available to decorate the site. As most of these themes are free, I started to experiment with some of them, and thus my friends who follow my blog must have seen my blog changing in layout almost every other day, and may be feeling pity for me at times…:)
Trust me, this sudden opening up of so many new themes got me real confused and the more I went on trying them, the more confused I became which will be the right one for me. Several questions hounded me in real time and kept on searching the answers from every part of the social media world I could possibly find.
And then one day I came upon this theme called Madhat. On applying it and then making the customization with it, I found the theme has an advanced version which is the paid version of the same. And thus a new world again opened up for me….:)
While going through Madhat premium, I started to look for other premium themes available in the Wordpress world. Once again the inevitable happened, the more I looked, the more the anxieties started to creep in. Will these paid themes be the right one for the very simple personal blog I have, will the payment for the theme be worth it, what will happen if the theme doesn’t get configured and ends up in a mess……like these several questions dogged me. But still I wanted to take the plunge, and see if I can do something better with my blog in giving it a nice elegant yet cool look. While going through various sites and support forums, I came to know about Themify. And decided to look into it.
Once in Themify, I went into the details, the demos, the documentations and browsed through various themes available. Unsure of which one to choose, I decided to consult the Themify designers. And I got the suggestion of a theme called Peak. After much hesitations, self question answer sessions and deliberations, I decided to go for the same and purchased it.
And then started the next journey, to get the theme installed and configured for my blog.
