It was finally time to upgrade my web design site, and I had just had the experience of setting up my first WordPress site as a proof-of-concept for an upcoming job. I thought, since it was so easy, I could get a new site up quick—’bout the only way it was going to happen…I was waiting for a nice open spot in my schedule to get that done, but I haven’t seen one of those for years! 5:15 pm
Now, you may wonder why a web designer is using a theme from another designer. Couldn’t I design my own? Well, that’s the thing: designing the website is what takes most of the time getting a website out. Using a free theme got it out the door quick. Now, I modified it plenty, of course: some subtle color, and a great sans-serif font: Aller by Dalton Maag Ltd.
Now I can take the time to develop my own theme and meanwhile have a new website and blog to represent my business.
