New Premium WordPress Theme For Nigerian Entrepreneur

Written by NaijaEcash

Topics: Blogging, Ramblings, Wordpress

Irrespective of what people may say, the truth remains that the design and layout of a blog matters. Right from the launch of this blog, I’ve always try to use a blog design that will present my content in a simple but professional way. That has been my reason for always wanting to use a premium wordpress theme. Since premium wordpress themes are usually commercial, only few are truly free premium themes, it then means I can’t change the blog theme as often as I like.

Thrilling WordPress ThemeYou may be wondering why I can’t just save myself the whole stress and pay something like $50 to get a premium wordpress theme installed. Well, I’ve always tried to use free resources for this website (except in a situation whereby it is not possilbe to do so). Since the blog is an attempt to prove to would be Nigerian online entreprenuers that they can replicate the success of this blog, it then means that I need to go about things using a shoe string budget as much as feasible.

For those of you that have been a fan of this blog for some years now, you will notice that it’s been over a year since I changed the theme of Nigerian Entrepreneur. After several months of procastinating because I consider the task of tweaking a free premium wordpress theme and getting the layout right a task I will rather not do. (I actually prefer blogging to having to tweak codes, html, css, etc.Like I said earlier, if I were to have my way, I would simply have outsourced the design of the blog).

Well, I finally gave in yesterday and introduced a new look using the premium theme Thrilling Theme from www.thrillingheroics.com The theme has a beautiful design and simple layout. Guess what, I actually got a copy of the theme in 2009, but I was afraid of the tweaks I will need to make to get the layout right. So, I kept prostponing switching from my former wordpress theme, Revolution Code Blue to Thrilling Theme.

I felt is was time to change the look of Nigerian Entrepreneur since over a month ago. However, I was not confident enough to switch to te new theme then because when I previewed it, there were several things that were broken. I simply told myself that when I’m less busy, I will do the change so that I will be ready to correct anything that gets broekn. Well, I never get the break until yesterday I when I simply told myself, that a better time may never come. It is better to switch and then start fixing whatever is broken one step at a time until it is all fixed.Just like there will never be a better time for you to start that small scale business you’ve been dreaming of. You just have to take the first step instead of allowing your fear to cage you and keep you incapacitated.

Well, I finally got over my fear and activated the theme yesterday. Since then, I’ve been under the hood tweaking codes and getting rid of some widgets in other to get the layout that I desire. After 24hours, I’m yet to get a perfect layout like I desire. But I fell better now that I have taking the first step of changing the theme. Nigerian Entrepreneur now have a new look. Apologies to my fans that visited when all the layout were heavily in disarray. Things are begining to take shape now.

I will love to hear your views about the new look and how easy it is to get at the information you need. Your suggestion will assist me in making corrections where I need to. Much more I wish to use this opportunity to thank you all for your comments. That is my greatest motivation. You are the reason why I still blog even when I don’t feel like. I guess that is enough rambling about the change I just made.

If you love the new theme, please say so in the comments. If you have an objection, feel free to express your thought. Like I mentioned earlier, the theme is a free premium wordpress theme. It has options that you can easily tweak from the admin dashboard. Also, you can do whatever you wish with the theme because it is  open source! For your copy, visit www.thrillingheroics.com. Cheers.

    Naija-World! Welcome to Nigeria

  2. It’s a nice theme but remember that MK Akan seems to have the same theme.

      I know MK Akan uses the same theme. I actually got the theme before he started using it, but I wasn’t ready as at then for the hassle of tweaking it to my satisfaction. David Ajao is presently using the same theme. I guess the popularity of the theme is as a result of it’s nice design. Thanks.

  3. I just noticed oh! Seems everybody is really loving the theme ;-).

  4. Nna I’m doing my best to hang in there while looking for amicable ways of solving my allowance wahala as my fellow corper doctors in the same hospital are earning more than I do.

    Anyway, Long story. Glad to know that W3 Total Cache is working wonders for your site speed 😉

    • NaijaEcash says:

      Nice to know you’re coping fine.

      Thanks for recommending W3 Total Cache. I need to come to your blog and give my testimony of how I benefited from your recommendation. Cheers.

    i would love to do an interview with you …are you keen?

    • NaijaEcash says:

      I’m doing fine. The Lord has been good to me. If the interview is written, then it is ok by me. Cheers.

    Tahnks for sharing this information. I’ll check it out because I need a premium wordpress theme like this.

  8. Jason Webb says:

    I have to agree with most of the comments but lets not forget ” Service”. It can take years to create all what listed in this post, and it can all come crashing down in minutes.

    If you want any template, either for wordPress, Html, Dreamweaver. don’t hesitate to contact me: 08022733372

  10. I’m changing all my blogs immediately.I have been searching for such theme for long.

  11. This theme is nice. A “Follow us on Twitter” option just beside the “Join the Community” option in the top menu bar would be good as I missed the facebook and twitter buttons in the wibiya toolbar below.

    I agree that there are many commendable free resources, but sometimes, you have to buy premium things! It’s good 🙂

    • NaijaEcash says:

      I’ll probably look into your suggestion. I thought the wibiya toolbar was sufficient for visitors who want to share with others. Thanks for suggestion.

  12. chibuzo says:

    I love it too, but how do I get it?
    Thanks.
