A couple months ago I redesigned and upgraded my WordPress blog and I’m so glad I did. I’ll tell you all about the benefits I received from my redesign and I’ll also tell you how I did it so that if you are going through the same process you can benefit from what I learned.
Benefits of a WordPress Blog Redesign
These are the improvements I’ve attained from my redesign:
1. More Functional Layout
Makes it easier for readers to find the best stuff on Life Learning Today.
How to Do It Yourself: Purchase a premium WordPress theme from Solostream. There are several highly functional and elegant themes to choose from. I use WP-Glory. The pricing is very reasonable and the support alone is worth the cost. Customizing is a breeze with these themes. If you’re looking to redesign your WordPress blog, do yourself a huge favor and consider a theme from Solostream! You will not be disappointed like you might be if you spend a lot of time installing free theme and then find that it’s hard to get support when you need it.
What’s Great About Solostream WordPress Themes:
- Dedicated support site with online video tutorials for customizing your theme.
- Highly responsive email support.
- Easy to customize.
- Very functional design.
- Visually pleasing design.
2. Better Handling of Site Traffic
I can now handle a larger amount of visitors at any given time. I can handle a Digg load of thousands of visitors with no problem. Why? Because my new web host, Media Temple, has a technology for web hosting called Grid Service, where multiple servers work in tandem to be able to handle massive spikes in volume. Truly brilliant. Customer support is excellent too. They also have One-Click Install for WordPress!
How to Get Better Web Hosting: Sign up with Media Temple and please tell them that Life Learning Today sent you! Thanks!
PS: You can even manage your Media Temple web hosting from your iphone. Pretty cool:
