Have you ever fallen in love with the look or features of another website – but couldn’t figure out just how they did it?
As Picasso said, “Good artists copy, great artists steal.”
If you want your website to be great, it doesn’t hurt to steal ideas and inspiration from others!
Of course that doesn’t mean blatantly copying someone else’s work.
But using the same themes and plugins and putting your own spin on them? That’s how it’s done. Why reinvent the wheel when what you need is already out there?

Whether they’re using WordPress
Which web hosting company they use
What theme is powering their site
What plugins they’re using
