I haven’t yet finished the new theme design for sueblimely.com but it was time to make some changes. I want to point them out to make you aware of what’s new, especially the bits intended to increase my income. 🙂 Now I’ve probably put you off looking but at least I’m being honest.
I’ve decided to go with the Genesis framework for my new design but, as usual, I haven’t found an “out of the box” child theme that suits me. So I’m building one from scratch. If anyone is interested, I’ll talk about why I chose Genesis in a future post. I’ll make my Sueblimely Genesis Theme (with options for customizing) available for free to my subscribers.
That leads me nicely into the new additions here:
In the past I’ve built sites for companies and organizations who’ve never run a website. This is extremely time-consuming, as I often end up managing the site and writing their blog posts too. Now I’m offering my services to those who don’t need (and can’t afford) this level of service. I’ve bought developer versions of premium theme frameworks, themes and pro plugins and can now offer you various installation packages.

- You might just need the premium themes and pro plugins for an existing or new site because you can manage it from there yourself. If you are new to self-hosted WordPress, I can install WP on your domain with your choice of premium theme and pro plugins.

- For those involved in building downlines in affiliate/MLM marketing programs I offer you a complete Team Building website powered by powerful new software.
- A member site for clients with training, private article content and if there’s a demand, a forum too.
No Hype Just Help Newsletter Service
I held off from offering a Newsletter Service until I worked out what content will be of the most use to you. Notice I called it a “service” because my goal is to provide you with information, tools, resources and news of value.you. I welcome your feedback as to what you’d like to see in there. Please see my Newsletter Details page for more information on what to expect.
I removed all the little 125px x 125px advertising banners from my sidebar. I doubt if anyone ever looked at them. Do you think my sidebar is still too cluttered? Instead of the banners I’ve created two new pages: Recommended Resources and Join Me
I use Get Response for my autoresponder but their optin templates don’t include horizontal forms for adding to the body of pages and posts. Until I work how to do this manually I installed the free WordPress Plugin Optin Forms which gives you various customizable horizontal form layouts. It’s compatible with the major autoresponder services. All you need to do is create a form in your autoresponder, copy the form ID and past it into the Optin Form options.
You can see my form at the bottom of this post but here are the other templates that you can work with, by changing, text and colors.
Social Media Engagement
As a way to liven up the amount of engagement on my Facebook Page, I’m making an effort to post more images and image quotes, ask questions, run little challenges and help you publicize your own pages.

I hope to see you there. Please message me with your own Facebook Page addresses so that I can follow you.
Do you have suggestions as to what you’d like to see in my newsletters, based on the topics I write about?
