The title of this post may seem odd and wrong to many of you. Many of you would say i should have writtenÂ “Why $87 is too much for Thesis Premium WordPress theme“. Even i would have said the same thing few months back when i hadn’t bought thesis theme and used it on two of my blogs.
When i started to ponder over the idea of buying a premium thing due to my frustration with free theme and their too limited options , even then I wasÂ not in mood to spend $87. The reason being , the premium themes didn’t look like they were worth spending that much money on them.
Even I was dis-satisfied with many premium themes i searched for my WordPress blogs. Finally i settled for Thesis theme. Even when i bought it and used it first time, I wasn’t sure if thesis was worth the money I spent on it. But today, i know i got a good deal for my money and i am loving it now.
