I’ve Been Woo’d

It’s been a busy year so far, and it’s about to get a lot busier thanks to a recent recommendation from a friend about WooThemes.

That tip came from Maui pal and Accidental Consultant, Erik Blair (@erikblair), after he visited the website I’m putting together for my new, soon-to-be-released Maui Postcards App for iPhone and iPad. He’s been working with WooThemes for awhile now, and had one particular theme in mind when he saw what my App and site was about.

He shot me a note, and after only a few days, I’m now a WooThemes subscriber and my new Maui by Postcard site has a great new look.

Summer Plans

If it was just about that one theme, this wouldn’t be that much of a post.

While looking at pricing options from WooThemes, I had to decide whether I wanted to purchase a single theme (plue 2 bonus themes) or join their subscription club. After spending time browsing through most of their 90 premium themes, I made the decision that it was time for a large scale update for almost every site in my portfolio.

And that’s where WooThemes and the rest of my summer plans come into play.

Site Updates

With my new Maui by Postcard site running my first WooTheme, I selected 5 to 6 other themes to use for updating other sites that have been long overdue. Here’s the rough update list, in order:

  • Maui by Postcard (just about complete now)
  • The one you’re reading now (webnelly.com)
  • New site – not officially launched yet
  • Maui by Photo
  • Ka’anapali Dreamin’
  • New site – not launched yet

That’s going to take a few months to work through, but it should be exciting to see it all come to light as those sites get crossed off one by one.

With the webnelly.com site next on the list, I hope to get started with that soon. Keep an eye out for that and status updates on the other upgrades coming soon.

And if you like what you see over at Maui by Postcard and some of the other updates as they happen, then definitely checkout WooThemes and some of the awesome themes that have available.
