Changes to Website Building with the Advent of Blocks
Back in the day, we were pretty excited to productize the original Mai Theme platform.
Remember the sections template? That was a cool way to stop using widgets on a homepage area.
We were intrigued when the Gutenberg plugin was created. Blocks were not a part of core WordPress when they were first introduced.
We tried Gutenberg, installed several block plugins to test, and struggled to create any type of consistency.
Blocks weren’t as easy as everyone claimed.
However, over the past two years, blocks have advanced significantly and introduced a whole new paradigm for page building with WordPress.
With full-site-editing on the horizon for WordPress, how we think of building and working with websites is changing once again.
Staying on top of those changes though, well, it can be tough. Luckily, you don’t have to worry about that.

BizBudding’s goal has always been to help content creators, digital marketers, entrepreneurs, and small businesses create sites they love and launch them fast. And now it’s getting even easier.
No more spending hours learning a third-party page builder and losing valuable time tweaking settings just to get a slow-loading website.

With Mai Theme you get every website template and starter site and you can use them on as many sites as you want.

Mai Design Pack
When you’re ready to take things a bit further, check out the Mai Design Pack.
The Mai Design Pack is for site owners already using Mai Theme.
It includes all of the premium plugins BizBudding has developed over the years to enhance the design, features, and functionality for our private clients’ websites. They’re the same plugins that power top sites like Wellness Mama, The Spun, and The Paleo Mom.
Mai Pattern Library
Mai Design Pack also includes access to our brand new Mai Pattern Library.
I think you’ll find the pattern library to be super cool.
Each element on a website is a block—a headline, a paragraph, or a button.
Blocks are combined into a pattern—for example, a headline with paragraphs and a button for a call-to-action.
The pattern can be copied and pasted into any page of your Mai Theme powered website. Even cooler: it will automatically match the font styles and colors of your website. No more wrangling CSS on patterns to get things to look nice.
With the new Mai Pattern Library, you don’t even need to create the patterns yourself. All of the starter site home pages plus tons of really cool designs for testimonials, calls-to-action, pricing tables, and so much more are all available to you in the pattern library.
The Mai Pattern Library also includes patterns designed by Rafal Tomal in his Design Kit for Figma.

All of this means that you can pick and choose your favorite bits of every website design Mai Theme has to offer and simply copy and paste them into your website. It’s seriously that easy!
The best part is that everything works together flawlessly.
