Why You Should Be Using the Genesis Framework
If you’ve used WordPress for any length of time, you’ve probably noticed that a lot of people use and recommend the Genesis framework from StudioPress. (If you haven’t noticed, just search for the #genesiswp hashtag on Twitter and you’ll see what I’m talking about.) I use Genesis for every single one of my own sites, as well as my clients’ sites, and so do all the other designers I know.
Every now and then a potential client will ask why I use Genesis instead of [insert theme or framework here]. They’ve seen all the rave reviews, but they want to know why Genesis is such a big deal. And while I’d like to respond, “Because it just is!” like a second grader, I know that isn’t necessarily helpful, especially to someone who is new to blogging and WordPress in general.
