A premium wordpress theme is a definite add-on to your blog and your online image. A good theme is a framework where you can build your blog. A good unique theme is a factor in your success as a blogger.
Sadly, many bloggers neglect the importance of a unique theme. They adopt one of the free themes available without even editing the basics. And they copy the designs of others without realizing that they are ruining their own brand!
Why should you have a premium theme?
- A premium theme is seldom over-used, so it helps you stand out from the rest.
- Premium themes are well structured and well coded and often updated, so you can be sure that you have a great framework to blog on.
- Premium themes are of top-notch quality; it helps you brand your blog better.
- A blog with a premium theme sends out the message, ‘I am damn serious about blogging’!
What keeps the bloggers away from a Premium theme is often the cost factor. Bloggers who fail to realize the importance of a unique theme are lured by the wide pool of free themes, not to mention the hole that a premium theme might leave on their pockets.
Twist in Story!
Elegant themes come to your rescue! Elegant WordPress Themes do not sell you the themes as such. Instead you get a club membership for one year. You are free to download all the available themes as long as you have the membership and you can use those themes even after your membership is over!
One year membership at Elegant Themes Club costs $ 19.95. Right now there are 22 themes and many more will be added soon. So 19.95 divided by 22, is $ 0.906! I think that’s the best deal in the Blog Street!
Why Elegant Themes?
- Out Standing Quality: See the Gallery and you will fall in love with them. It’s a hard task picking the right one 🙂
- Elegant Themes look awesome: Remember netizens are scanners, not readers. A cool theme acts as glue and sticks them to your blog.
- Great Support: The club membership comes with access to forums and you get great support.
- SEO Ready: I have a habit of evaluating a theme by checking out the SEO basics on it. These themes passed all my tests. The basic tags and elements are right in place.
- Unique: Each theme is unique and not a color change of the other.
- Great Navigation: Though there are lots of cool features for each theme, the navigation bar with awesome drop down menu is worth mentioning. The comment boxes are great too. But that’s just the beginning; you will have lots to say!
- Purpose Built: Some of the themes are built for specific purposes. For instance, the eVid theme is good for Video Blogging. It comes with custom functions to easily add and host videos. Some themes are in magazine style while there are others in the traditional blog style. Boy, you have lots of options to choose from.
- Lifetime License: The themes that you download once you get the club membership are yours for the rest of your life! You can use it on any number of blogs and customize it the way you want. However, you will not get future upgrades unless you renew your membership and you cannot resell them or use them on your client’s sites.
- Adsense Ready: Themes are designed with provision to insert Adsense ads and private ads. Great Ad locations.
- Social Media Ready: Thought has been put into and themes are already blended with popular social media and social book-marking icons.
- Full Package: The theme comes with all the elements of the theme including the Logos. Logos are included as Layered PSD files which can be easily edited to suit your site. Logo design is yet another issue and usually costs at least $30, but here you don’t have to hire a designer.
- Highly Affordable: Already discussed, its light on your wallet.

Attention: Elegant Themes would be an ideal choice for niche bloggers who have a series of blogs. Imagine how cool and professional your blogs would look if you have a premium theme on each of them?
