In the Beginning
In the beginning I used Blogger, then moved to WordPress.com, then TypePad, Live Journal, Joomal, Drupal and finally made it back home to WordPress.org where I have been since 2007.
All along the way I learned bits and pieces of hacking code from some of the greatest first adaptors to blogging.
It was not until around 2010 when I went to the WordPress MeetUp here in Dallas where I hear about some new WP Framework being development with it’s focus on making it easier to create awesome looking web and blogs. Since I keyed on the word ‘easier’ I immediately started keeping my eyes on the internet to find out more about what I had just hear.
It didn’t take me long before one of my sources out on the left coast pointed me to the Genesis Theme Framework. Having been using the Thesis Themes for a few years I thought it was going to be hard for me to find another framework that allows as much flexibility in quickly designing a custom WP site as the Thesis theme did. However, It did not take me long after looking over the Genesis Theme to see I needed to check it out.
Easy to Use
Right out of the box I could see what StudioPress developed was going to be easier. From the download to the easy dashboard edits, the ease of the design process was much smoother than I had imagined. The design breakdown provided with each of the themes was spot on with quickly creating an awesome looking website.
Needless to say..but I will…the new design of my site here was kinda fun to do. I used the News Pro Theme and I did hack it a little to get the look I wanted. The information I found in the StudioPress Forum was a huge help. The tutorials and the Code Snippets really made the time I spent creating this site a wonderful experience.
I’ll have to say..the Genesis Theme Framework has impressed me and I kinda look forward to designing another one of my sites using one of the Genesis Themes. I recommend you check it out.
Let me know how I can help.
