Okay, when the Copyblogger theme (affiliate link) came out a little while back, it wasn’t that long after [chrisbrogan.com] 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* ChrisBrogan.com *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.
