I use and recommend the WordPress theme called Genesis. I love it, but one of the hardest things I've encountered is trying to choose which child theme I want.
The truth is, I've purchased many more child themes than I'd like to admit because I can't make up my mind. Although this isn't surprising since "can't make up my mind" is practically my middle name.
Anyway, had I known I was going to be so fickle about my child theme choices, I would have purchased the All-Theme Package long ago. As the name suggests, you can get all the child themes in one fell swoop (and cheaper) than if you just buy one child theme at a time.
Jeff: I agree with you about Genesis. I bought the all theme package a couple of years ago and it was the best investment.
Me: Oh man, Jeff, I am TOTALLY kicking myself for not doing the same thing when I had the opportunity a while back (I had a rockin' coupon code). That's awesome!
Well. I am happy to report, StudioPress (the makers of Genesis) is having a week-long sale on their Pro Plus All-Theme Package. Woot!
Just to be clear, I do not recommend this deal for everyone (perhaps most), but for some, it might be an excellent deal and it's one I took advantage of myself. Mostly it's for the fellow geeks in the house, but it's a big purchase (it is for me anyway) so you'll have to decide whether or not it would be worthwhile for you. Still, I know many of you have interest in blog design, so that's why I mention it.
My two cents and the 411:
I do not recommend this deal if you are:
- A new blogger just starting out. It's totally overkill at this point.
- A blogger who does not like dealing with the back-end of your site and would rather hire it out to someone else if needed.
- A seasoned blogger who is happy with your theme and in a good rhythm.
You might consider this deal if you are:
- A current or future blog designer.
- A blogger who is outgrowing your current blog setup and has the budget and the skills to tackle a new design yourself.
- A blogger who has many different projects in mind for which you may need different sites.
What you get with the deal:
You get all the StudioPress child themes for the Genesis Theme Framework, now and forever. Not only do you get the child themes available today (almost 50), but you also get all the child themes they make available in the future! Oh, for someone like me, that's exciting. Just think of the possiblities.
The regular price for the Pro Plus All-Theme package is $349.95. The sale price through August 28, 2012 is $299.95.
