How To Add An Author Box to Your WordPress Site (WPExplorer)

WordPress Author Box“As you probably know, an author bio box increases the authenticity of your blog. Although publishing anonymously has its uses, it does not compare to the value of authenticity. An author bio builds trust with your readers. People don’t just want to read the info you publish on your blog, they also want to know who you are. It’s easier for people to trust you when they can associate the content they read with an actual person.”

Turn Casual Visitors into Customers with a WordPress Slide-in Signup Form (WPMU DEV)

Go Plugins“Most site admins focus far too heavily on traffic at the expense of what truly matters. And while what truly matters is up to you, it shouldn’t be traffic.

Why? Because traffic doesn’t represent anything useful. The number of eyeballs on your site simply isn’t as important as more relevant factors, such as the percentage of those eyeballs who subscribe to your email list or make a purchase.”

26 Best WordPress Themes for Artists (aThemes)

Marble Theme“Marble is a fantastic example of stunning simplicity in action. If you have a lot of art to share and you have confidence in it standing on its own two feet (rather than having to be supported by a complex design), it could be the right theme for you.

You can immediately tell that Marble was designed with mobile displays in mind – while the desktop version of the site looks superb, the design adapts and degrades beautifully to smaller devices. Beyond that, the developers have done very little to get in the way of what really matters: enabling visitors to browse through your artwork with intuitive ease.

The theme offers multiple layout options for the homepage, blog and shop. If you like the look of this design, its flexibility will ensure that you can make it work closely or precisely to your requirements.”

7 Things You Need to Do Before Launching an Online Store (WooThemes)

Space Shuttle“Gearing up for the big launch of your online store can be a bit overwhelming.

After all, there are a lot of factors to take into consideration. Is your site as good as it can be? Are your products interesting enough to capture attention? Is there a market for them?

These are things that you take care of in the early planning stages of your business – when it’s more of an “on paper” thing than a “real” thing. I’m going to assume you’ve got your bases covered on that stuff.

For now, I want to talk about the things you need to do right before you hit publish on that e-commerce site you’ve been working on day and night. Those things that, when done properly, can launch your business head and shoulders above the competition.”

5 Reasons We’re Meant to Work (Bidsketch)

Meant to Work“I believe that we’re meant to work.

Since it’s most people’s goal to escape the rat race, that may seem counter-intuitive, but it’s true. As humans, we were created for a purpose and that purpose isn’t to sit in front of the television for hours and hours on end watching shows or playing video games. Just a hunch!

Instead we’re meant to contribute – in many different ways. Here are five reasons I believe we’re meant to work.”
