Not all developers and website owners are fond of bright

Not all developers and website owners are fond of bright, animated and complex website. There are instances when shinny and colorful ‘Buy Now’ buttons tend to discourage visitors or potential buyers. In clean WordPress themes such unnecessary elements are removed to present your products, services or contents in nice and elegant way. Keeping your website neat, functional and straightforward allows your visitors to concentrate on the content you are offering and value they can get from it. Another reason why Clean WordPress theme is very popular these days is the fact that simple designs usually loads faster and provide better user experience. Themes with simple layout designs and modest features give your website flexibility and functionality. By and large, clean website is more inviting and easier to navigate compared to heavy loaded websites.

If you are looking for a catchy, clean and functional theme for your website, you have come to the right place! This list of Clean WordPress Themes is created for website owners and bloggers who have high appreciation for minimalism. The themes included in this list will certainly look great on your site by providing modern and creative touch on your website site.

Website animations are often considered the antithesis of minimalism

Website animations are often considered the antithesis of minimalism. It’s understandable – the more movement on a webpage, the less focus there is on your content. However, Vinero is the exception, and tastefully applies animations to enhance its sparse design.

In a refreshing change to other themes, there are no demo layouts in Vinero. Instead, you get one layout, and one portfolio design – perfect for the purists, and it enables you to get up and running straight away. However, there are a multitude of customizations to be found within a dedicated admin panel, and there’s also a bundled version of the Visual Composer plugin to customize your layout further.

As for the animations, they succeed in keeping the focus on your content, while offering a little movement to keep things from being too dour. You have the option to choose a parallax hero background, and each portfolio entry keeps things simple with a slow fading overlay displaying any additional information.

Vinero is one for the minimalist fundamentalists. There’s little to tinker with, yet it provides enough to exercise flexibility in design. Vinero is perfect for creating a no-fuss website with a modern bent, and for a pure minimalist website, there’s little better.

5 Keys to Making and Keeping Your New Year Resolutions.

So the new year is almost here and it is time to think about your resolutions. Your goals may be to finally give up a bad habit, lose a little weight, broaden your intellectual horizon, or even commit to be more generous.  Whatever your resolutions for a new year are, here are a few keys that will help you be successful in making and keeping them.

 

New Year Sunrise

 

1. Define the Win. Many people make mistakes of making very general goals and never end up keeping them.  It’s one thing to say, “I want to lose weight” and entirely another thing to say, “I want to lose 50 pounds by Thanksgiving.” Fifty pounds is a defined win.  When you state, “I want to lose weight.” you have defined a direction, but you haven’t defined a measurable goal line. How will you know when you have lost enough? You can always make another goal later.

Here are some abstract goals that have been better defined to understand a win.

I want to read more – I will read 12 books this year (1 book a month)

I want to eat better – I will eat a minimum of 2 vegetables a day

I want to exercise more – I will run 500 miles this year.

I want to be more generous – I will give 15% of my income away this year.

2. Make smaller goals along the way. In football there are two lines that really matter. The official goal-line where all the points are scored and the first-down line where a team advances ten yards and gets 4 more shots at the goal-line.  The smaller goal of the first-down marker is often what really advances the ball and helps teams make it across the bigger goal-line that counts.  Create for yourself smaller goals that you can achieve on a weekly or monthly basis that will help you achieve your bigger goal.  If your goal is to read twelve books a year, that translates into one book a month.  If you want to lose 50 pounds, that’s roughly one pound a week.  Make smaller goals and celebrate when you’ve reached them. celebrating small successes along the way will give you the momentum you need to reach your bigger goal.

3. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.  Your goal may be something huge like to quit smoking. Do some research and consult some people or products that are geared to help you. If you want to lose weight, don’t be afraid to consult your doctor and even sign up to meet a trainer at the gym. If you want to read more, ask someone you know who reads a lot and ask them for strategy and tips.

4. Make the goal with a friend or group of friends. If you are trying to lose weight,  get your spouse on board to exercise with you or to make a similar commitment to eat healthier. If you are trying to read a book a month, start a book club. Have a friend meet you at the gym 3 times a week. If you want to write more, start a blog and ask your friends to follow.

5. Evaluate your results. Set an end date and set aside time to evaluate how you did throughout the year towards your goal.  Every goal achieved and not achieved is a chance to learn.  Maybe you only read ten books instead of twelve (odds are that’s about nine more than you might have otherwise). Maybe you only lost 35 pounds (that’s still 35 pounds!).  Maybe you quit working out in February because you got a cold and never went back. Figure out what went wrong and what went right. Take the time to measure how far you have come and challenge yourself with something new for the next year.

What kind of resolutions are you making this year?
