Blog Re-design with Thesis

by Mary on September 3, 2012

fit & fed logoI love my in-house web design expert for uncountable reasons. But in this case it’s his actual programming skills that are making me happy. Much thanks to my husband for completely changing the look and feel of Fit and Fed! He created a child theme of Thesis, one of the most advanced blog frameworks around.

Thesis was the first professional theme he used starting years ago, and he’s created several sites with it. He’s made sites with other themes like Elegant and Genesis but keeps going back to Thesis for its clean, easy to modify code.

My husband also created a new header logo and one for Gravatar among many other details. There will be additional tweaks here and there but I’m already much happier than I was with my default WordPress site. Thanks again, hon!

The re-design looks great! I know you will love thesis, it’s great!

Thanks. I know there’s so much more to do– categories on the header bar, a recipe index, better graphics— but it’s a good start.

I can’t believe the ease of use with the re-design program! Never before has it been easier to use. It’s simple without looking simplistic, the most professional look around! Thanks so much. This blog framework has made it possible for even me, a novice blogger, to look like I’ve been around the block time and again. The way it presents makes me look like I spent forever designing it…little time spent will remain my little secret. Thanks so much for all the advances that make me look so good!

It seems you have a very good developer who can re-design useful and new look and feel for you. You also have a attractive logo.
Thanks for sharing such a good experience with us.
