Hello! Last week I started Gizmo Finds - a weekly or monthly article about random things on the internet that I find worth sharing. Last week I shared about Question2Answers, Twitter Bootstrap and some sites you can check out if you want to learn more about internet marketing and SEO. This week I would like to share some news and products I found on the internet. A site which sells professional looking WordPress themes, a site where you can find royalty-free images for your blog, a news from Blue Host and one of the big news this week - Philippines is now on Investment Grade.
If you are looking for a professional WordPress theme to be used on your site, then you should consider MyThemeShop. What I liked about them is that aside from the free themes they offer which I now used on Sisig Bytes - Food, their paid WordPress themes can be used for more than one site. Most professional WordPress themes' license only allows you to install the theme on one site. When you need to apply the same theme to another site or domain, then you need to buy another license. Not very practical for people who just started earning money from their blogs right? You just buy one theme for $35 and you can use it for more than one site. Or you can also be a subscriber for $99 and you will have access to all the themes and additional of at least 3 themes per month. What a great deal right? Checkout MyThemeShop WordPress themes here.
Blog posts are dull without images and illustrations and finding them on the internet is quite a hassle especially when you don't know if a certain picture is copyrighted. Worry no more because there are sites like Shutterstock that offers royalty-free images. You can download images for as little as $49 and you won't be sued for any intellectual property rights violation. Check Shutterstock now.
Blue Host Dedicated Hosting is here!
Blue Host has offered its shared web hosting plans for quite some time now. People who wants to have a higher plans suddenly transfer from them to another company because of this limitation. This has been true until last week when they opened their Dedicated Server accounts for beta. With this account, you will have your own server just for you. You will have features such as instant provisioning, root access, single sign-on and of course Blue Host customer support. Since this is only an invitation-only beta, you will need to have a key to join their $1 only beta. Let me know if you want to try this out so I can give you mine. Just contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
