New Theme 5

Because of Google limiting search results on web sites that are not responsive in nature, I had to change my theme. I’ll be customizing it over the next week or so, but this is what the site will look like for a while. If you spot anything broken or just completely out of whack, drop me a line.

    I assume that means that your previous setup failed their mobile-friendly test. Campaign Mastery actually uses a plugin that makes WordPress themes mobile-friendly – it’s part of the Jetpack free plugin. Not perfect but pretty close to it!

    It’s also worth noting that the actual change to Google’s systems happened back in April, a full month ago, and that most sites have reported zero impact on their rankings…

    Yeah. I realize that I’m probably reacting out of “knee jerk,” but I’ve wanted a responsive theme for a long time. This finally got me off my bum and got me to pull the trigger. Now to get things back to a color theme that I like.

    I’ve been revamping a ton of sites that I maintain to have better responsive options thanks to this. I used various mobile website plugins for years, but every thing I’ve created in the last 2 or 3 years has been responsive out of the box. It just needs to be to fit the modern aesthetics and mobile devices that are constantly used.

    This is kind of what I do for at least 2/3 of my day job. ( http://beezenwebdesign.com ), and I’ve got a few themes from unfinished projects laying around and have access to all of these themes through a developer membership. (http://www.elegantthemes.com/). So, if you find you don’t like this one or want something with more diverse options, drop me a line. I’d be happy to help.

      Thanks for the offer, John! I’ll check out your links tomorrow morning when I get a chance to look things over. I also do web development, but I’m more of the engineer type that makes things happy. If someone gives me a design, I can make it happen, but I’m HORRIBLE at the actual design part. I can do it, but the end result always produces comments like, “Wow. Looks like an engineer designed the site.” 🙂

        I’m kind of in the same boat. Certainly not an artist and I do a lot of behind the scenes coding. I’ve learned to supplement my tech abilities by finding really well done themes or templates to use as starting points to build off of. I’ve got artistic inclination, just not the innate drawing or design skills.
