Black Friday for Bloggers

Now it can be told

Okay, when the Copyblogger theme (affiliate link) came out a little while back, it wasn’t that long after [] got a new theme. As we share a design team, I wasn’t exactly calling Brian Clark out for it, but if you look at the graphic above, and then you look at my site (not on a mobile device), you’ll see that um… it’s pretty similar. Right? We can admit this now, right, Brian?

But now, if you have the Genesis Premium WordPress Theme, you can get the Copyblogger *cough cough* *cough cough* theme absolutely FREE. Note that I said it’s free if you’re a Genesis user. That’s because this is a “child” theme, and you need the Genesis framework to load it. Here’s the thing: it’s a gorgeous theme and has served me (and Brian) very well for the last while. Seeing as Brian is moving on to another them, he figures there’s no harm in letting you make your site look like mine.

What’s included in a premium theme like this?

  • 6 layout options for flexible design choices
  • Red, orange, or blue color schemes
  • Responsive mobile layout for iPad and iPhone
  • Sidebar and footer widgets for easy customization
  • Turn-key archive and blog page templates
  • Rock solid search engine optimized code
  • Unlimited domains you can use it on
  • Expert support from our StudioPress team

That’s pretty darned cool, right? I don’t think mine goes that easily to Orange. At least, I haven’t found that button yet.

The Thanksgiving Sale

In the US, we are celebrating Thanksgiving, and the folks at Copyblogger Media have made a whole bunch of deals available. I love and use these products, and vouch for all of them. If you’re thinking about investing in your blogging and online capabilities for 2012, you’d do well to check out these deals:

25% off Everything at StudioPress

  • Get the Genesis Framework for only $45.
  • Pick up a Genesis child theme design for less than $20.
  • Snag a Genesis / design combo and save close to $20 (or more).
  • Wipe the entire shop clean by getting our Pro Pack All-Theme Package. Get Genesis plus all 43 current designs, plus every design we make in the future, and save over $74 off the regular price (and over $875 off the retail price of just the existing 43 designs)!

I cribbed some of this from the Copyblogger site, so forgive me that. We’re both promoting their stuff.

If you’ve been holding off on things like this, make this the reason why you should get into premium themes and improved blogging tools. I use them for all my current sites and projects.

      • Chris Brogan

        On it. : ) 

      • Linda Sherman

        Chris Brogan’s switch from Thesis to Genesis had a big impact on my decision to begin researching premium frameworks … resulting in the same decision for myself. 
        Does the “Chris Brogan theme” have a name?

        • Chris Brogan

          It does now: Copyblogger theme. : ) 

  • David Kowarsky

    As we all know that the bloggers are so much useful for the developers & SEO specialist & according to author the friday is reserved for the bloggers.
    Thanks for sharing with us.

  • Martin Matteson

    I think you should mention you have a designer to code your blog. The same when you were on Thesis – you got people to buy that and then they realized it wasn’t as easy as just installing and making it look pretty.

    Don’t begrudge you making a few bucks, but at least be upfront about things, Chris.

    • Chris Brogan

      Hi Martin – The copyblogger child theme is pretty much the same theme as my blog, so my point was that you can now get this theme. Yes, I have a designer. Very few themes look perfect out of the box. It’s not the premise of the offer. 

    • The Nerdy Nurse

      I use the genesis framework, and it does require a little bit of effort to get it looking how you want it. Oh how I long for a WYSIWYG wordpress theme editor.

  • Kevin Thompson

    Thanks for these tips, Chris.  I really value your judgment.  I’ve switched over to Genesis and I’m using a lot of their tools like the landing page tool and Scribe.  I just wanted to say thanks.  Take it easy.
