I’ve been using WordPress for several years now for my sites. I started developing in Adobe’s GoLive, but every change made was an ordeal. This usually meant the websites were not updated very often. My clients depended on me to keep their sites updated. With WordPress, sites are easily managed and updated.
The best WordPress themes out there are by Brian Gardner and his creative team at StudioPress. The new Genesis Framework is the only way to go if you are developing a website. Their themes are like my databases, clean, clear, concise and simple to use.
There are a lot of free themes available, but you get what you pay for. The support and talent at StudioPress is by far first class and the designers have created some fantastic looking themes. If you have a problem, you know it’s going to get solved. This site is based on the StudioPress Crystal Child Theme.
