Woothemes dispatched one of their ninjas disguised a developer to my Marketing Monday group on Silicon Valley.
Patrick Rauland was assigned the task of narrowing down the seemingly infinite pile of choices for themes to apply to a WordPress site.
Give us 400 and we are paralyzed. Give us 4 to choose from and we can decide.
Patrick gave us his 4. You can see his picks by flipping through the deck he shared at his site – SpeakingInBytes.com
Patrick shared his criteria for making the decision on which/what kind of theme to choose as well.
Lots of genuine enthusiasm, as opposed to such people who have to convince us they are excited by starting off with, “I am really excited …”
Not Patrick. He just was … in love with what he does and it showed in his voice, his delivery, his patience with the many questions he got and his willingness to stick around until the last bit of pizza was gone (kidding!), until the last Meetup left.
Need some insight on how to pick a theme? Need a place to start? Need help in just picking a good starting point?
Patrick’s your man.
You can follow Patrick on Twitter. You know you want to.
And if you invite him to a warm place … far away from other cheeseheads in the middle of winter. He’ll be extra happy.
