I admit it.
I drank the kool-aid.
I’ve been in a box for the last two or three (at least) years with my blinders on.
I was under the distinct impression that if a blog / website wasn’t developed on either Thesis, or Studiopress that it just sucked. Plain and simple. Well, my friends. As great as Thesis & Studiopress both are, I came to a realization the other day — with the help of Utah Internet Marketer Dave Parkinson — that *gasp* there are OTHER options out there. Thesis and Studiopress are not the only WordPress frameworks / themes that pay astute attention to SEO & design detail.
(^I hate that expression)
So what is this crazy talk?
If there really are other WordPress themes on the web that are as great as, if not *doublegasp* better than Thesis / Studiopress then what are they. No, WHERE are they?
Let me introduce to you, ThemeForest (affiliate link). Sort by Rating and you are sure to find some winners. I have lately, and I’ve gotta admit, I think I’m done with developing with Thesis / Studiopress for now.
While they are both great themes, there are better options out there. The only reason that I am just noticing this is because back when I started blogging, there really weren’t any great theme options. So I plugged in to what was the best at the time, Thesis & Studiopress, then put my blinders on, and chugged along.
Both frameworks have served me well, but I think it’s time to move on.
All this really means is that you can expect for this site to be redesigned in the next few months. 🙂
