Selling WordPress Templates
See, the thing about WordPress that really sucks is that on the free platform (i.e. wordpress.com hosted sites), you can’t use your own wordrpess template without coughing up some money. Now, I’ve not done the sums, but given the ridiculousness of how cheap hosting is these days, it would be daft to pay wordpress instead of simply buying hosting and having your own install. Or would it? I mean essentially it would amount to the same thing, except that you wouldn’t necessarily have a domain name if you went the worpress route.
See, Blogger isn’t like this. The free blogger service lets you completely customise it if you want. You can slap up your own templates to your heart’s content, and showcase your awesome design skills. Oh well. Sure is a pity, ’cause I’ve designed such a nice wordpress template and everything. And how the hell am I going to sell it if I can’t showcase it? meh. Suppose I could give it away instead of selling wordpress templates.
I know that blogger is owned by google, who, let’s face it, have money to throw around. But really, wordpress could take some notes here. On the other hand, wordpress don’t really have a monetisation model like blogger er I mean google. So, maybe they’re stuck with having to charge people for custom upgrades.
Either way, the underdog blog will always be free. If you want a free wordpress template, email me. put the words underdogblogger and gmail into some sort of semblance of an email address….don’t forget the @ sign or the .com and you should be good to go!
