Last week I talked about how to get a professional writer’s website set up using WordPress and Studiopress themes or websites. Some people might be afraid to start a WordPress website and use Studiopress themes because it’s something new and different. But I have been using Studiopress themes for a long time, and I have a developer’s license because I believe in these themes so much!
If you are just getting started with WordPress and Studiopress themes then there are two things you need to know before getting started:
1. Studiopress has a framework called Genesis. This is the skeleton of your design and houses all the techy stuff that makes it a very clean, fast, and professional website design for your WordPress website. Basically people build pretty designs around the Genesis framework which leads me to point #2.
2. In order to really make your new WordPress website stand out you need a Studiopress Child Theme. Now you can purchase Studiopress child themes on their website. You can find free child themes here. You can also find designers who specifically specialize in making Studiopress child themes like Restored 316 Designs (my fave!) The child theme will be what people see on your website while the framework works behind the scenes making your new WordPress website run smoothly.
My absolute favorite child themes are Restored 316 designs. I am actually an affiliate with them (and Studiopress) so you can see lots of banners around my website promoting both of them! I know how difficult it is to sift through all of the information we can find online so I like to share with my readers what works for me.
So with that being said I am super excited to announce the very first ever Writer Wednesday giveaway! Lauren from Restored 316 Designs agreed to generously give one lucky winner a Restored 316 design of their choice! With that, I am going to give the winner the Genesis framework, too!
