We’re four days into ‘Market your freelance writing in 31 days’ and I think it’s going well. I’d love to get some feedback, though: how do you think it’s going? Are you getting a lot out of it? Are there any areas you’d like me to write more about?
What’s a good WordPress theme for writers?
In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a big fan of WordPress as a basis for writers’ websites, to the point that I’ve got an ebook in the works on the topic. Part of the reason I think it’s such a good choice is because you can change the design of a WordPress site, known as a theme, without having to mess around with any of your content. As long as you have the newest version of WordPress, you can make the change with minimal technical knowledge.
I’ve been asked a couple of times what themes I think work particularly well for writers. There are a couple that I’ve run across that I really like, although these are just a handful of the options. There are, of course, thousands of other free and premium WordPress themes out there.
It’s worth noting that since these themes are all free, more than a few people will be using them. That means you should customize them if you can, so that you stand out from the crowd. That takes a little technical know-how, but it’s generally worth it.
