This interview is part of our initiative to know our users take on our themes, web development and other things in general.
Today, we are interviewing John. John is a freelance writer and a blogger. He also works a 9-5 job on the side. He started web development with Dreamweaver and moved to WordPress because of the ease of use it offers.
If you wish to be interviewed by MyThemeShop, get in touch with us. Only requirement is that you must be using any of our free or premium products for more than 3 months.
Here’s the full interview.
A. Who are you and what do you do?
My name is John. I am a blogger, freelance writer, and work a 9-5 on the side.
B. When did you start your first blog or website and how?
I started my first website back in 2008. It was a niche focused on general information on warts, and the removal of warts. I created the site using Adobe Dreamweaver, which is the program me and my past coworkers used for maintaining a host of niches for a client.
C. How did you hear about us?
D. Why did you choose MyThemeShop?
WordPress is essentially easier to use than Adobe Dreamweaver, but like a lot of people migrating from other CMS’s, I had difficulty in learning back-end coding with WP.
MyThemeShop first caught my attention with its wide variety of beautiful themes. I’ve spent days scouring the Net for something that could represent my ideas in a catchy, engaging way whilst giving my site’s visitors the convenience of user-friendly navigation. I was even more pleased to find out that MTS’ themes were well-coded and optimized for the search engines, which is great considering I am heavily reliant on organic traffic for raking in visitors.
The best part is the fact that MTS offers free 24/7 tech support for all their customers. This was a major deal maker for me, as I’m a bit of a buffoon when it comes to back end coding!
E. Which MyThemeShop theme/plugin are you using and why?
I use Schema because it looks cool, professional, and attractive. It loads very fast as well. This makes it great for users who generally don’t have much time on their hands to be waiting on a slow-loading website.
Schema is very intuitive, and coded in such a way that allows the search engines to crawl it efficiently, and rank accordingly.
F. One thing that would make MyThemeShop better?
Special discounts on our annual theme fees would be awesome. 🙂
G. One tool or website you can’t live without?
The tech support forum.

I. Please share a brief testimonial about your experience with our products:
My experience has been terrific. My knowledge in coding in with WP is very limited, and it used to take me hours of learning, as well as trial and error, to successfully implement simple changes in my previous themes. Between writing my own content, off-page SEO, and coding, I barely had enough time to get any of the tasks done.
Coding took up most of my time, and it was the most frustrating task of all. And that’s why I decided to signup with MTS, as they literally took care of the guesswork on my behalf. Their tech teams are literally wizards, and they’ve provided me simple, step-by-step solutions to all of my code-related concerns.
This gave me so much more time to focus on my writing, working with other writers, and other tasks that I like doing.
I also have to say that my rankings for certain keywords have went up without the use of link building, guest blogging, and other off-page SEO methods. I’m not an expert, but I believe the on-page SEO, which I credit largely to my well-coded theme, is a major factor in the sudden and gradual increase.
I am happy with MTS, and will continue to be a happy customer for many years to come.
Thanks a lot John, for sharing with us.
