Have you ever needed a website, whether for yourself or someone else, simply to communicate simple contact information, and perhaps a simple about paragraph? In those cases, a blog theme just wouldn’t really fit—then it’s overkill. Instead, something typically called a “business card” theme might be a better fit.
I have a few friends who, being professionals learning the internet ropes (so to speak) for the first time, really need a solid presence online. These days, having a Facebook and a Twitter account is nice but doesn’t really work as a solid anchor for an online identity. So I’ve given myself the task of helping these friends get simple, effective sites online using WordPress, and a business card theme.
