Beautiful, Simple, and Straightforward Design
A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Alpha Lite lives and breathes this quote.
As a blogger, the main point of your site should be your content – your text and images.
You want that to be center stage; not fancy graphics or complicated designs.
Alpha Lite’s simple design allows your content to be front and center, while still maintaining elegance and beauty.

Only The Options You Need
Unlike many other themes currently available, Alpha Lite is stripped down to only give you the options you need.
I know there have been times when I’ve started using a theme and there were so many options that I felt completely overwhelmed.
Not with Alpha Lite.
The only options you have are adding a title to your blog, adding footer credit, and adding your social network profiles.
And that’s really all you need.
It took me only 3 minutes to get everything in Alpha Lite set up and begin blogging.
While Alpha Lite out of the box is amazing, if you’re a developer like me, you probably will want to make small adjustments here and there.
It’s easy to do with Alpha Lite if you know some basic code.
All the coding on Alpha Lite is solid (Dewane did an amazing job coding this).
And because the theme is so simple, it’s easy to make any adjustments you want.
It’s a perfect starter theme for your custom theme jobs (and if you’d like to learn even more about coding in WordPress, check out Dewane’s blog DecodingWP.com).
Integrations Coming Soon
Dewane is planning on releasing a premium version of Alpha Lite very soon that will integrate very easily with Easy Digital Downloads, the easiest-to-use plugin that lets you sell digital products through WordPress.
So, if you’re a blogger building up an audience, you’ll be able to monetize by selling digital products like ebooks directly through your website.
Conclusion: Perfect For Every Day Bloggers and Theme Customizers
With a simple design focused on highlighting your content, a simple backend that lets you get up and running in just a few minutes, and integrations coming soon that let you sell digital products, this theme is perfect for the every day blogger.
