One of the most important parts of a successful magazine or news website is, of course, the content. However, just as important is the design of the site. Even if your content is top notch, without an appealing design and navigable site, readers won’t stick around.
Thankfully, there are plenty of stunning and usable themes available from WordPress created specifically for news, magazine, or even a combo news/ magazine website. Below, we’ve compiled 30 of the best news magazine WordPress themes available from various sites across the web to save you time in the research phase of your project.
As a reader of this blog, you’ve probably seen some of my posts about the guys over at LearnWebDevelopment.com, and their Successful Web Designer program. I’m sure you’ve probably thought about starting your own web design business, and in fact, you may have already started one. If you’ve been hesitant to start, or if you’re not getting the results you’d like, you’re not alone. Many people are afraid that it will take a long time to start making money. Others fear that they will encounter roadblocks, and not know where to turn for help.
But what if there were a way to avoid these problems, and get right to building a successful business and making money? What if you could learn how to keep your costs low, begin earning income in a month or less, and have expert one-on-one help whenever you need it?

Every week my email inbox is overflowing with marketing emails that, for the most part, are not very interesting. But a few weeks ago I got an email from the guys at LearnWebDevelopment.com that really caught my attention. I met these guys at a conference last year, and they invited me to check out their program. After spending some time with them and exchanging a slew of emails, I realized they had a pretty unique program, and this was something my readers would be interested in.
In the spirit of full disclosure, I want to be extremely transparent with my readers. Because I’m such a fan of their product I’ve partnered with them to be an affiliate to help promote their training. They offer a great product and I will receive compensation from them if you purchase their training, so it’s a win-win for everyone.
A lot of web designers are mainly concerned with creating beautiful
websites for their clients. They want the websites they create to be
picture-perfect, impressive, and works of art. They don’t put much
thought into a website after they hand it over to the client.
If this is your mindset, you’re leaving money on the table. I’ve learned
that results (not design) make the biggest difference between the web
designers who earn a lot and those who don’t.
In other words, you should be making websites that make your clients
more money. By thinking like a business owner, you’ll be able to charge
a much higher hourly rate. This mindset starts by viewing your
websites as more than just a pretty face.
Business owners care more about the statistics of their website. How
many visitors did they get this month? Is that more than last month?
How many people purchased something? How many people left without
