Little Personal History
I’ve built somewhere in the region of 50 websites since I first started in Internet Marketing in 2001.
I used to build my own Content Management Systems in PHP using a ton of ‘include files’ and inevitably in 2003, I discovered WordPress. It definitely wasn’t “love at first sight”, in fact, I found it clunky and bloated but over time I begin to realize that it solved a ton of solutions with the main one being ease.
The thing I began to really like about WordPress was the way that you could build themes and that, of course, changed the history of CMS’s on the Interwebs. I think I’m correct in thinking that something like 30% of the Internet is powered by WordPress (PHP and MySQL).
The frustration I felt with WordPress was, of course, the time it took to develop themes for clients and for my personal projects and businesses. There was always “an issue” or “bug” that I had to deal with and spend countless hours wrangling with the code.
Then, came along OceanWP, which simply said is friggin awesome and as far as I’m concerned it’s a total game changer.
OceanWP is a free multi-purpose WordPress theme that makes it extremely easy to create beautiful & unique websites with WordPress.
Here’s What I Love About OceanWP
It’s a MEGA time saver.
The best thing about this theme, as stated, is the fact that it is a major time saver: this customization setting is a fantastic example because you set all your global themes here and, of course, they can all be heavily tweaked as you desire.
