Install a Theme on Your WordPress Website

When you are building a website from scratch, installing a WordPress theme onto your WordPress installation is both easy and very important. Even if you already have a WordPress website you can easily go back and change the theme at a later date. I am a bad example for this and seem to change my themes at least once a month. It’s not my fault that the WordPress theme designers keep releasing fantastic looking FREE themes for me to download! I always find the best WordPress themes after I have just spent hours customizing one.

Genesis Theme Framework for WordPress

When I changed to the Genesis Framework and the eleven40 Theme my page load score went from 58 to 79 instantly. This was without any optimization at all. The other thing about this framework and theme is that it was so simple to setup that I can highly recommend it to each and every person that visits this blog! Genesis is the smart choice for your WordPress website or blog.
