Great looking Joomla templates and sites

I've spilled my guts in the previous post about what the hell is wrong with Joomla templates and why are they all so fugly? But now I would like to ask a reader (if I even have any) if you cold share some links to Joomla sites that dont look like Joomla sites and that do loog nice, original, that do have a template that looks professional, that makes you think - this is an original looking website.

Please help!

Why do all Joomla themes suck?!

I wanted to puke some poison about this topic for a long time. Do you remember phpNuke CMS? Do you remember how all the sites made with this cms looked exactly the same? Now Joomla is going down the same path. I don't know why.

It's just a f...ing template. It's 100% less complicated than Wordpress template. You can not make a Wordpress template to save your life I you dont know php and if you don't know how Wordpress works.

But you can easily make Joomla template if you take 10 minutes and ckeck which tags you have to put in. And you can do that even after the template is more or less finished. But no, all free Joomla templates and most of the paid ones as well just llok the same. Left column, content, right column and some boxes for modules. And it sucks. It's like every "designer" out there is just taking one Joomla template, change the header and the colors and put his name on it and throw it back out there.

How can you recognise a Wordpress template? Most of the time it just looks nice.
How can you recognise a Joomla template? It looks like a f...ing Joomla template from a mile away.

And again - there is no need for this. You could easily take any Wordpress template and turn it into a Joomla template (I would if Wordpress templates would not be such a pain in the ass when it comes to modifying and converting them, Wordpress templating system sucks big time (and still they make beautifull templates))...

I mean, log into any Free Wordpress Template site and you will find lots of great lookgin, original, distinct templates. Then log into a Free Joomla Template site and you will find a pile of amateurish looking templates that all look pretty much the same. Even the paid Joomla templates, Club Joomla templates etc... have a hard time from separating from that Joomla look and only once in a while they produce a template that doesn't have Joomla written all over it and that is not totaly specific for...well I don't know...some stupid hosting company, or e-store o whatever...one that can be used on any website.

So why do all Joomla themes suck?! I have no idea, but I know that it is quite a crutch that prevents Joomla from getting on the next level. Nobody wants a site that screams "I WAS MADE USING JOOMLA" through the template, right? I can' remember the last time that I went to a Joomla site and thought:"Wow, this is an ass kicking nice template!".

Do you?

How much money do I make online?

Money time. I'm not some big shot, internet mogul, a list blogger, big money mofo and this is just a support blog that is kind of close to me because I just ramble about anything and everything...which is not the best thing for a support blog. You want it to be focused on the topic of the website you are trying to support. What...well... anyway...

...still I decided that I will post my highes one day income shot from AdSense, which is 67$. I crossed 60$ a couple more times, but these days I generally earn somewhere around 40$/day. Which is great I think, but nothing to rave about in the general picture of making money in the internet.

Here's the shot:

I hope this turns out OK, I'm still not quite comfortable with this Blogger image system...probably because I don't use it very much.

Till next time.

Ohhh. you are welcomed to tell me what you think :))

A protein rich banana nut bread recipe that is low on carbs and low glycemic

Maybe I should start this post by repeating that making banana bread is really easy. It's harder to mess it up that not to :). I did my first banana bread a few weeks before I started with banana bread recipe site and even the first one turned out great. So this gave me the energy to start a new recipe site that is not doing that well so far, but...well it depends on who would you ask. A few bucks a day might seem linke nothing to someone and a low to someone that is only seeing pennies.

But this is not meant to be a post about me making sites and earning money but about a healthy version of banana bread. A version that is low on carbs and protein rich and has low glycemic index. What does that mean? This banana bread will slowly "leak" glucose into your blood. Slowly and evenly over time. Which is good and healthy. A quick spike and then nothing - this is the opposite - is not healthy.

What is even greater is that this recipe was donated by a reader of my recipe site and it is always a great feeling when this happens.

Anyway... try this or any other banana bread recipe, you will love it.
