Hello bloggers and bloggers to-be
Today I like to give you a little insight about my current theme Foodie PRO.
When I started my blog I had one of these templates from wordpress for free and I really enjoyed changing it every single week to another one. When you start a blog it is fun to experiment and it is also really what you should do in order to learn all the features your theme offers. Don’t be afraid as it might be overwhelming at first, but soon you will be familiar with all the tools.
You might ask yourself whether you should take a theme for free or charge for one. When you are a beginner it is totally fine to have free as they really offer nice designs. Thing is that they are not really customizable. Meaning that when you want a specific color to your blog or a font, it might not be available. The Foodie Pro theme is specially designed for food bloggers as it has some really great “food and recipe” related widgets and plugins. Usually, you can find them on the right side of a blog and down under. As you see from my page I have my bio, social media buttons, subscription box, my ebook, newsletter subscription, and ads as widgets on the right side. There is a wide range of options you can choose for your widgets. Some are already pre-installed on your WordPress others you can download for free. Another advantage of the Foodie Pro theme is the easy insertion of ads. Are you thinking about monetizing your blog? Within the Foodie Pro theme ads will show up correctly and in the right size, without you having to code something complicated. You simply add the ad code as a text widget and done
I switched my theme to the Foodie PRO as it allows me to do a lot of customization. Further the owner Shay, provides a lot of information in tutorials about the implementation of widgets and the set-up of the theme. Also, most themes are messing with your mobile design, whereas the Foodie Pro theme adapts so nicely and let the pictures even on the phone shine brightly. If you have NO IDEA about WordPress, coding and designing a blog, Shay offers a service where someone creates your blog according to all your wished within 2 days. This service, of course charges a fee. When you feel confident enough to do it on your own (I did it and I have NO tech background at all!), you should def. go for it. And should you have a question to the theme, no matter what, Shay (the creator of the theme) will help you solve it and answers your email within the next 24h personally. I never experienced that “familiar” and “warm” service before. It is not like you would talk to a company, but rather to a friend.
Why not upgrading your theme today and trying the Foodie PRO?
You won’t regret it!
It was actually the best-spent money during my “bloggers” life. 🙂
