Some friends made me compliments for my blog, in particular for the simple and professional graphical layout and they asked me why I chose this WordPress theme : Genesis Framework.
First I want to say this is the basic theme inside the framework, there isn’t a child theme for now. My goal is to have a clean wordpress theme, that encourages visitors to stay on my blog.
Those who are in the “WordPress World” from quite some time know there are themes much better than others, for many reason.
Examples : Genesis, Thesis, Catalyst, Headway.
Although they can’t be called themes, I use this word because it’s easier to understand.
Why Genesis Framework ?
Before choosing I have read dozens of articles and I got to test all these frameworks and my other themes.
I chose Genesis Framework for some reason :
- Responsive: smartphones and tablet have replaced Laptop and pc into customers’ needs, so it is important to have a website mobile ready
- Search Engine Optimized
- Many child themes to change layout
- Security in mind with best security practices
- Unlimited support
Top bloggers marketers and entrepreneurs use Genesis, such as :
And many more…
Some VIPs said that Genesis Framework and child themes are the best way to start building your online business, such as :
- Matt Mullenweg (WordPress Founder)
- Mar Jaquith (WordPress Developer)
For these reasons and many others I recommend Genesis but I have another important thing to say : StudioPress is a great and organized team that guarantee continuity to the project. Not only one man behind StudioPress but a team.
For several years I tried WordPress themes and I tested many of these but no one has convinced me like this.
So…before starting your blog take a look at Genesis.
