Last night I finally got around to updating my site to start using the Thesis WordPress theme. I was always impressed with the great reviews it received from blogger I respect, but was a bit skiddish because most of them are also kick-ass affiliate marketers, and DIYthemes was smart enough to build in an affiliate program to help spread the word about their framework.
Last night I was fed up with my crappy “free” theme and decided it was time to bite the bullet. I ponied up the $164 for the developers version and a few minutes later was uploading it to my server. Then I activated the theme and I immediately became a fan. Never in my short blogging life have I used a theme that wasn’t broken in some way when I first activated it, but Thesis worked right out of the gate.
As I started looking through the new options available to me I also realized I could get rid of a few of the seo plugins, because they were already totally integrated with Thesis. Chris Pearson seems to have covered just about every step, I couldn’t be more pleased.
So to Sugarrae and the girls at Outspoken Media, Graywolf, Copyblogger and even Chris Brogan, I’m sorry I doubted your motives. You were shooting straight with me all along. Thesis is awesome, and now they have me as an affiliate also.
So if this has swayed you to try Thesis Premium WordPress Theme, click on my link so I’ll get a couple of bucks back 🙂
