Today I Shifted My Blog to Genesis Framework and I am very happy and excited to use this framework for long time and with more wonderful tweaks to make my theme as unique theme. There are two big players in the market which are giving Theme Frameworks and they are Thesis and Genesis.
I am in blogging from last 5 months and have observed there are too much blogs on Genesis as compared to Thesis. People are shifting their blog to genesis and having much better experiences as compared to their previous theme. And I know NEWS Child theme is the most loved genesis child theme.
Why I shifted ?
As you know speed is the prime factor for any website to be successful and if your blog is loading too late then there is chance that your visitor will feel bit lazy to wait for loading and finally he/she will opt to close your blog. Genesis is one of the famous framework which have designed such a way that it follow all the rules which should be there for a fast loading blog.
My Experience with Woothemes was very good and I am still happy with them but the only thing I was missing the speed of loading and genesis is doing this very well for me 🙂
Why I Shifted My Blog to Genesis Framework ?
Genesis comes with a solid SEO based foundation, right out of the box. This means you don’t need to play with your theme to try to customize every little detail or remove useless code from a theme. Genesis also lets you tweak this further in the theme’s admin section.
StudioPress has dozens of child themes to choose from which let you instantly change the look and feel of your website without having to change any of the code – and all child themes maintain the same features and benefits of the base Genesis theme. For more advanced developers, there’s full documentation and an active support community to help you develop your own custom child themes.
If you want to stand out of the crowd theme there is good news for you that you can customize your theme as u wish. Genesis have simple hooks and by understanding these hooks you can make a good-looking theme for you. This thing attracted me and I Shifted My Blog to Genesis Framework.
On Site Updation
Like in Thesis every-time new update will come you will have to go on Thesis blog and download the theme and upload to you repository. But Genesis have the awesome feature that it will show update in your Dashboard itself. you just need to press update button and theme will get update automatically.
By observing all these awesome features I decided to Shifted My Blog to Genesis Framework and still adding some more tweaks to have much better experience.
