New Theme Thursday - New Theme for your ActiveBlog! Our Easy Going Theme

Real Estate Agent with Myrtle Beach Homes Blog

Finally, the return of New Theme Thursday!  This week we are rolling out a new theme titled: Easy Going. This clean looking theme features a slick background and rounded corners which I personally enjoy!  Here is a screenshot of my Outside Blog:

Easy Going Theme

We will be introducing new themes on Thursdays so make sure to check back for the new stuff. Remember, changing your theme is a simple deal. All you have to do is head over to your outside blog after clicking on the link from the left hand side of your 'my home' page. Once on your outside blog, click the 'theme' link up at the top of the page and select the theme you want to use.

If you don't have a custom ActiveBlog on your own domain yet, Brad Andersohn takes you through the step by step of how to get it set up. For those of you who have recently signed up for the Rainmaker upgrade, your ActiveBlog is included in your upgrade so make sure to get it set up.

Howdy there Jeremy

It sure would be nice if ActiveRain, would start makeing things here to help promte the Home Inspector members of the community. Seen that I was told a few mouth ago, by AR. That they were going to.

It sure would be nice, to have AR add at the bottom of all blog post page's a link to find Home Inspector members of AR, in each State, like they do for Real Estate Agents in every State.

 Find NH real estate agents and Charlestown real estate on ActiveRain.

Most of us are really active in the community also.

God Bless America

The theme looks great. I need to catch up on the changes, improvements, and options on the outside blog. A couple months off, I missed some stuff.

Dale- These themes that have rolled out last week and this week are made to target at home inspectors as well.  As for searching for home inspectors...I had no problem searching for them.  Here are all the inspectors in NH.

In your opinion, would it be better to frequently change the look of one's outside blog or to find one and stick with it?

Irene, that is a tough one.  I would probably say a balance can be good.  Unless you have one of the major Brand Themes running.  You want something that people will come to recognize and be familiar with.  But it is also good to mix it up from time to time and give it a fresh new feel.  People will recognize that too and spend time trying to figure out all the new features.

Jeremy - I love your posts. I can't wait to see the new theme. I try a new one every few weeks and see how they 'fit'. It's great having options. Thanks for all the hard work!

Jeremy - Looks good.  I haven't gotten around to settling on my there yet.  I've been using the Exit one, but I'm not happy with it.  In reference to Heather's comment, perhaps that's one way ActiveRain can monetize the site.  Hire your very own developers.  They probably do themes in their sleep.  Might be something to consider if more people keep asking.  They could even possibly pick up some side work if ActiveRain didn't want to be a part of it.

Desperately seeking info on the "Outside Blog".  I hope you can help. 

I am considering my budget for 2014 and would appreciate your help. Where can I find all the info I need on the subject? I've tried an AR search and mostly get posts by people who haven't yet given their blog a real name. I posted to this Outside Blogs group, but got no replies.

The email contact function on the few outside blogs I was able to find doesn't seem to be working. 

How good are these platforms, really?

Please reply.

Thanks, Jeremy.
