We’re over the moon that you found us and want to learn more about BizBudding and the talented team behind everything Mai. We are passionate about helping you grow your online business and can’t wait for the opportunity to get to know you
Here are a few things you should know about us:
Our Goal Is Your Success
We started BizBudding with two primary goals: to provide unrivaled services to high-traffic blogs, and to create resources, toolkits, and training for new website owners and rapidly growing brands. From day one, empowering bloggers, content creators, and digital entrepreneurs just like you to turn their big dreams into reality has been the driving force behind every decision we’ve made.
High-Traffic, High Volume Experience
We built and host hundreds of custom blogs and dozens of those sites earn more than a half-million page views per month, with the largest peaking at a whopping 45,000,000 visits per month. All of our experience working with big sites — wellnessmama.com, thepaleomom.com, and thespun.com — has been built into the development of everything Mai. Yes, that means your site gets the same codebase and hosting the pros use.
The Mai Engine Plugin
Our powerful Mai Engine Plugin — included with every Mai Design Pack and Mai Solution purchase — contains extra features and extensive customization options for all of our Mai templates. Containing functionality within a plugin, separate from the template design, means you can customize your site with confidence and have peace of mind that new updates we release won’t mess up your design or break your site.
The People Behind Mai
BizBudding was founded in 2010 in Hackettstown, New Jersey. Our small office was perfect for team meetings and whiteboarding. In 2020, we went 100% remote, and now our dedicated crew collaborates and supports you from locations across the United States.
We invest heavily in providing top-notch support, training courses, and a free blogging community for our customers.
You can count on our team for a wide range of services that will help you launch, grow, and monetize your website. You can also count on us to deliver fast, performant, secure, and feature-rich software products.

Growing Our Community
In 2020, to help more digital entrepreneurs, bloggers, and creators achieve their goals, we welcomed two WordPress theme companies and blogging communities to our family.
Welcome Pretty Darn Cute and SEO Themes!
Our acquisition of Pretty Darn Cute and SEO Themes helped us not only better understand the importance of community for aspiring bloggers but position BizBudding to support more bloggers with changing technology.
- The thriving Pretty Darn Cute Facebook Group inspired the development of our growing Mai Blogging Community — a place for bloggers to connect, learn, and grow.
- The SEO Themes collection of classic themes gave us an expanded base of themes to adapt to the new WordPress block editor (AKA Gutenberg).
- Our expanded, multi-faceted customer base inspired us to rethink our business model and turn both website template sales and hosting on their heads with Mai Design Pack and Mai Solution
Looking to the Future…
WordPress has undergone major technology changes — shifting from the Classic Editor to the Block Editor. The themes offered through Pretty Darn Cute and SEO Themes were developed for the old Classic Editor, which may no longer be officially supported by WordPress after 2021.
Acquiring these brands gives us the opportunity to help site owners using WordPress themes from Pretty Darn Cute and SEO Themes transition to modern, flexible block-based designs powered by our Mai Engine Plugin.
I look forward to showing you how Mai Theme, Mai Design Pack, and the Mai Community can support you today and in the years to come.
Thank you for trusting us to be your partner.
— David and the BizBudding Team
