Getting your site going is a challenge. You have to decide on various design elements, create content, and most importantly entice viewers to peruse your site. Sometimes, however, the hardest part is just getting started. You may have an idea, or even content, but no idea how to put it all together to be a successful website. In cases like this, use WeLoveWP as a resource. Several sections of our site can be extremely helpful for a would-be designer to get ideas to get the ball rolling on their WordPress site.
If you look at the gallery, the leftmost tab of the site, you will see WordPress websites which have been submitted to us. Looking through them you will see many different layouts, styles, and design elements. Use these sites as examples to fuel your creative engine. Perhaps you want a sliding banner just under your navigation bar, or a minimalist approach which places content front and center as soon as the viewer enters your site. Either approach can be effective, but you’ll never know about all of the possibilities unless you explore the WordPress world, and the gallery is a great place to do that.
If you look on the right hand side of the blog, you’ll see several directories of WordPress themes. These theme listings can help you transform what’s in your head to what can be on the screen. Don’t just take the first one you see that looks interesting, glance through several pages to make sure you don’t miss out on a theme that is “just right” for your site.
Another resource is, of course, this blog! Here we share highlights, tips and tricks, and reviews of the WordPress engine with one goal in mind: to make you more successful! We post three times weekly, so check back regularly or subscribe to our RSS feed. Even if you’re a seasoned internet marketing engineer, it’s always good to hear an outside opinion to get new ideas or remember old ones. If you do have a website you’d like to submit, we welcome you to use our submission form to get your page noticed. Even if your site is in its infancy, submitting now can get you more viewers later.
Until next time, and Happy Memorial Day to those who celebrate it.
