A writer I very much admire told me she loves WordPress.com. She also told me she uses Nucleare for a theme. I admire her website and asked her what theme and what Host she uses. I made my choice this way.
Professionals writing these books on website design love their subjects--and hence, are extremely wordy and complex. They're far above someone like me--non-technical in the extreme.
The learning curve for using WordPress turned out to be steeper than I anticipated. I've built a number of sites over the years and worked in web development and SEO/SEM capacities for some major companies. I figured it would be simple, not so much.
Which brings me to Tristan's book.
I quickly realized I needed some help, so I of course bought some books. I wish I'd purchased this book before I started. The education about how to choose themes (and plugins, and widgets) is well worth the price of admission. In fact I would highly recommend to anyone first venturing into using WordPress to buy and read this book first.
Mine already has a number of pages tagged with sticky notes and plenty of sentences and paragraphs highlighted.
Tristan not only teaches you what to look for and how to know if it's what you want, but just as importantly he teaches you what to look out for.
I'm glad I purchased this book, I'm finding it very helpful.
You can see a picture of my site in transition (the all white and too busy version) and the transition to WordPress (the clean version).
Hopefully I'll have it all done in a few weeks and move the test WP iteration over to take the place of the current live site, Piano World.
