I know, the title is very cliche. As you’ve noticed, the blog is going through some serious face-lift. I’d struggle to find the perfect theme for my blog. The hunt and journey has finally come to end, with satisfactory results of course. The weird part is, I’ve been sucked into a journey of self-learning. Well, I never had the knack or patience in html, css and countless technology jargon’s anyways.

Thesis Theme for WordPress:  Options Galore and a Helpful Support Community

Now if you are like me, looking for a perfect, easy customizations yet affordable theme for your blog, look no further. Thesis is the one! No mess, no fuss, Thesis by Chris Pearson is the only theme you would need to kick off a beautiful blog. It is packed with loads of easy buttons, knicks and knacks for a basic self-learning programmer like myself. While some might argue the need to pay $87 for Thesis, it is every bit worthy of your penny. Sigh. If only I’d discovered this theme sooner. Well, better late than never ;) The main reason I spent money on Thesis is for their amazing Thesis Support Community. All questions and doubts are generally just a “search” button away! Isn’t that simple? More time to blog, less time coding :) That’s my kind of fun time! If you are already a Thesis user, congratulations! This might be your wisest purchase ever.

Every Thesis purchase option comes with killer benefits, including:

I chose to write a review on Thesis because I am so happy with it! If you are a beginner looking for more information on this fabulous theme, feel free to leave your queries, comments or concerns in the comment section below. I would be more than glad to help and guide you on how I’ve customized my blog thus far. I’ve never been so excited for something this technical. Thesis made this excitement possible :D Stay tuned for simple step-by-step Thesis customization on Chatterbox. Soon.

This is arguably the most popular premium theme for WP. I am surprised you knew of it only now! I have seen you here changing your themes.

I see you have become an affiliate too; congrats. Web hosting and theme selling affiliations are one of the richest options with bloggers today. Check out the Hostgator affiliate scheme [it pays like anything]. I am soon shifting to self-hosting better late than never.

Install the thesis open hooks plugin and it will help tremendously. 100 resources for thesis users will help. http://mattflies.com/tech/100-resources-for-thesis-wordpress-theme-users/

I guess commentluv plugin is also not working. Keep tweaking; I am doing my test runs and know it can be so taxing at times! All the best!

Hi Vikas,
I’ve known about Thesis for long now. I’ve just recently decide to purchase the theme. It was definitely the best purchase i’ve ever made in my life :) I am so happy with the knick-knacks and functionality that are built right into Thesis. Thanks for the affiliate info’s. I am Thesis affiliate only because I am using Thesis, and I’m so happy with the outcome. I referred to Matt’s blog for my Thesis customizations. Thanks for the head-up :)

You can’t really rely on plugin’s to help drive traffic to your blog. Good content and do-follow is a must in my personal opinion.

Are you saying that your blog is a do-follow blog meaning you are distributing google juice? :)

P.S.: Most affiliate programmes including Hostgator do not require you to be a user of their product. HG pays well and is a great company. But I guess it is better to endorse products you actually use.

BTW your Orland’s link doesn’t work! I clicked on it more than once in last few days. I am surprised because they are with Mediatemple a very reputed host.

I am not confessing per say :) I do appreciate other blogs with great content as well.

Thanks for the HG tip! You hit the nail on its head about endorsing products that I actually use :)

The Orlando Orbbies are over now. Sorry it didn’t work earlier. Surprising though :)

Hi Kiran,

I was wondering if you would help me out. I’m thinking of buying the $197 Thesis theme. How does this work exactly? I have a design in mind. Will Thesis actually help me design it as per my choice? I searched Google for how exactly this works but didn’t find any satisfactory reply. Please help me out!
