Jim DeBetta is a retail & invention expert, who mentors and coaches entrepreneurs and inventors from their initial sketches to selling their final product to major retailers. As a coach and mentor to entrepreneurs and inventors, a blog is very important to DeBetta’s enterprise. While his main site,, was undergoing a redesign with its original web designer, Jim turned to award-winning small & independent business coach & advocate, Donna Maria Coles Johnson, for her professional blogging opinion.

Deciding to separate Jim’s blog from his main site & have his blog located at, Donna Maria suggested he use theĀ Thesis theme for WordPress [that is where I fit into the picture (wondering where I was going with all this?)]. Jim & Donna Maria approached me wanting a customization of Thesis with a clean look. So with Donna Maria as Jim’s consultant, we worked together to create

Some of the customizations include:

  • date in the header
  • social network icons with links in the header
  • navigation & search bar
  • subtle drop shadow on the rotating photo area in right sidebar
  • sponsor area in sidebar
  • feed of most recent tweets from twitter
  • subscription in sidebar
  • set-up and styling of sidebar widgets
  • set-up and styling of post header
  • comment count bubble
  • & more!
