This is just like buying clothes – but only once because after that, the clothes get updated automatically! Investing in a theme is one important thing for a blogger. Free themes are good, but premium themes are better. This blog runs on Thesis Framework and you can see how clean, neat yet beautiful it looks! The $187 (Developer Package) spent on this framework is worth. However, you can get Thesis Personal Package just for $87 by clicking this banner -
For this, all I could say is that if you’re going to a night club, you don’t wear your regular trousers and that old checkered shirt, do you? Get a leather jacket, a stunning pair of jeans and a rocking shirt to grab the attention of all. So if you’re looking on the first thing to invest in a blog, get a theme NOW!
Plugins – Are They Worth To Invest In A Blog?
Though most plugins are available for free, there are many useful plugins which are sold for a price. Those plugins are usually referred to as Premium Plugins. Even though the free versions are similar to to the premium ones, there are MANY hidden or visible differences! A Plugin is a great thing to invest in a blog. For a simple and normal blog, I would highly recommend using 2 Premium Plugins -
(i) Commentluv Premium
I definitely recommend this plugin. In face, I’ve written a post on How To Make Money With CommentLuv Premium
(ii) WP Subscribers
Another great plugin. It strongly helps you to increase your email subscribers. For that, you need to have an account with either Aweber, Mail Chimp, Get Response or similar email marketing programs.
These were 2 from me, but there are hundreds for you to choose from. Go get some premium plugins to make your blog a better place!
Subscription To Networks
This has only one name for now – BLOG ENGAGE! Apart from motivating its users, networks such as Blog Engage provide an enormous platform for a blogger – where the first priority is given to BLOGGING! Yes, there thousands of users worldwide who use Blog Engage and 99% of them don’t regret the amount they paid to join it!
So these were some investments that I think a blogger should definitely do for his/her blog. Do you have any more? Do add them in the comments!
