A few days ago, I switched from a free theme to the Genesis Framework by StudioPress. After reading some articles and doing some research I was a little bit nervous about making the change, because there are a bunch of folks saying that the framework is too advanced for non-technical types like me and that you need to know programming and so forth.
I went ahead with the switch anyway because I wanted to get the benefits of being on the Genesis Framework, and join all the other serious bloggers out there.
I mentally prepared for the worst. I pictured sitting with my blog in pieces and sifting through the Genesis manual and numerous web resources to determine what code I needed to make my site resemble what it had looked like before the upgrade.
