Give Your Blog A Makeover

Doing A Makeover Is Easy With Plugins Use Thesis To Give Your Blog A Makeover

An Article By Dennis O'Brien

 

The below video comes from a recent series of webinars presented by Rick Anderson with guest Kim Carney. Rick is an experienced designer/programmer, founder of BYOBWebsite.com and a problem solver in the Thesis Theme For WordPress forum. His guest Kim brought with her an amazing insight into design as a graphic designer but also as someone who has spent many years with Microsoft team. 

 

Thesis Theme Plugins To Give Your Blog A Makeover

Rick has spent a lot of time lately developing plugins specifically designed for the Thesis Theme. He makes these freely available to subsciption members (some for non-subscription members) and is a dedicated mentor for anybody interested in building, designing or redesigning a website. With over 700 video tutorials on his website, an active member forum and regular weekly seminars, there is little more a person needs in the way of assistance.

The next series coming up shortly is on building a membership site and will cover

everything from beginning to end.  It will cover the use of many of his plugins some of which are free for non-members as well. 

Ideas For Giving Your Blog A Makeover

The video looks at some of the ideas that were tossed around during the "before" stage of DJ Shawn's makeover.  You can learn a lot from the points that arise during the discussions on design and the reasoning behind some of the suggestions.  There are many such tutorial type videos available for free viewing once you sign up to the site which of course is free also.  

Below the video is a link that will pop up a window with Shawn's new design.  After the video finishes just standby for a redirect to the site and you can check out what's available.  You will find links to the free plugins under the Members Benefits in the navigation menu.

You probably do not have the Flash Player (Get Adobe Flash Player Here) installed for your browser or the video files are misplaced on your server!

So Will You Give Your Blog A Makeover

Many of the ideas in the video will no doubt give you food for thought.  And once you see the results of Shawns Makeover you might also decide the Thesis Theme For WordPress is a great investment for your future blogging.  The one thing that sold me was after I installed an update for a free theme I was using.  I spent at least a week having to redesign the areas and recode much of the content.  With the Thesis Theme it's a matter of saving two files and uploading those into the updated theme and all done.  Five minutes versus five days was all the incentive I needed. With Rick Anderson's plugins for the Thesis Theme I no longer have to deal with code either.
