About This Site
A few words about this site and how it was created:
When I set out to build a presence on the web, I needed something quick and easy, but I did not want it to look like it was quick and easy. It had to look professional, clean, and well-planned. With some help from a good friend, I was nudged towards WordPress, a powerful, flexible blogging platform in use by a countless number of people.
Part of the beauty of WordPress is flexibility and customizability. If you are experienced with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) you can make your WordPress site look like anything you wish. If you are like me, you don’t know CSS. Instead, you can also install themes onto your WordPress site to change the whole look in just a few clicks.
Arguably one of the best WordPress themes is the Thesis theme by Chris Pearson. This site is powered by WordPress with the Thesis theme. Hands-down, it is one of the best ways to set up a great-looking website in a short amount of time with minimal effort. It has great search engine optimization (SEO) built right in. Do a Google search on “aviation social media”. I dare ya. See where this site appears in search results. At the time of this writing, DaveFlys.com is the third result.
WordPress is free; Thesis is not. However, I like Thesis so much that I bought the Developers Option, allowing me to install Thesis on any number of websites that I own. It is probably one of the better investments I’ve made on the internet, and I plan to use it indefinitely. Please check out the link below if you are interested in building clean, highly customizable websites with SEO that is second-to-none.
In the interest of full-disclosure, if you click the link above and then end up purchasing the Thesis theme, I will get a commission. So please, buy it for your WordPress site! I promise, you won’t regret it.
