Over the past couple of months we’ve been hard at work planning out our next themes for the rest of the year. While we have a few other ideas up our sleeves, we couldn’t be more excited to share the first one up: Magnolia! We know that there are new people starting blogs every single day, and those people want a gorgeous and strategic look for their site, but they don’t always have the budget to work with us one-on-one.
Our starter themes are a great way to achieve that, but we both knew that those themes were pretty minimal and mostly geared towards hobby bloggers. With Magnolia, we wanted to give new bloggers on a budget a great look with the strategy to help grow your blog that our upper-tiered themes are known for.
But enough talking about it, right? Here are some of the amazing features of Magnolia:
If you’ve been eyeing our premium or deluxe themes, you know that our full-width headers are a staple on our themes. We add this feature because we know from our own sites that this is the most strategic placement for a call-to-action to help grow your email list, lead people to a workshop, or even show off a new offering. New bloggers want this sort of strategy as well, so we included this full-width header feature on Magnolia!
Building on the strategy in the header, one thing that Krista has talked about time and again is that you don’t want your readers getting to the bottom of your site and not knowing what to do next. I couldn’t agree more with her. When a reader gets to the bottom of your site they’re either looking for something, like an opt-in form or social media icons, or because they’ve been loving everything else they’ve seen. So on Magnolia we included a 3-column footer area where you can add any widget you like. The theme comes with nothing preloaded, but here’s an example of what your footer might look like:
Easy to match your brand
Last and most importantly, what’s the good of a theme if you can’t customize it to match your brand? With this theme (and all of our themes) you can easily upload your own logo and customize the colors to your liking without having to edit the code. You can also change the fonts to match your brand right in the same place.
