WordPress Theme change

Domain names are way more fun to talk about than what theme your WordPress blog is using, but several people have asked about the makeover of Domain Nitro so bear with me for a second and we’ll get back to the domains…

If you are a regular reader of Domain Nitro then you might have noticed the clean, easier to read, and faster loading theme I changed to recently. The reason I changed is simple – I wanted the focus to be more on the domain names, news, and overall content. I also wanted to make sure I was optimizing the site for loading as well as SEO so it was just the perfect time to change.

In the beginning…

I started off with a free theme and soon swapped to a “free” theme from WooThemes using their framework which I really like especially given the price. WooThemes has some great premium themes, but I just wanted a super clean theme so I’ve been on the lookout for a while.

I also have a subscription to ElegantThemes and their themes truly are elegant :)

I use their themes quite successfully on some of my sites and they are rock solid and very visually appealing… very focused on elegant design and aesthetics – just more than what I wanted for this one site.

WordPress Theme evolution…

I read a lot of domain name, marketing and seo type blogs and I have always liked CopyBlogger’s site layout and how easy it is to read their content. Imagine my surprise recently when they posted that they were changing themes and rebranding a bit… NOOOOO!!! Then I saw the site and thought… oh, ok not much really changing from readability. Meh.

The GREAT thing was they were giving their old theme away for free! I’m all over that especially since they had a black Friday deal for the Genesis Framework from StudioPress which is required to run their premium and free themes. Seems crazy to pay for a framework and get a free theme, but it is the best framework I’ve seen and a LOT of people use their themes on some major sites. The setup and configuration, stability and overall usability is unmatched from every theme provider I’ve seen. Check them out if you are looking for a good WordPress theme.
