I redesigned my blog over the last couple of months and after I changed my mind a few times, I stumbled onto Thesis.  Like many of you I have downloaded hundreds of blog themes and if you are like me then you may find it hard to choose a design.

That’s when I found Thesis.  Thesis is by far the best WordPress theme I’ve ever used and it is a little overwhelming at the start but it provides an extensive array of user feature allowing you to customize how your site looks in a matter of clicks.  This may seem a little restricted for some of you but if you are confident coding CSS then this theme is your blogging oyster.

This Thesis video gives you a quick overview of it and how I designed this site.


There are many Thesis tutorials out there but the chap you must follow is the teenage blogger Alex Fraiser.  Man can that guy code some nice sites.  I highly recommend you subscribe to his feed over at Blogussion & Asino also check out Greg Rickaby, he is clearly excellent at what his does.

See the tutorial below which inspired my design.

      I love Thesis too. Although, what you have done with it is amazing. It inspires all bloggers and web developers to do more and Thesis makes it possible!

      Thanks for the great info and links. There is a bit of learning curve with Thesis, but it just keeps getting better and seems to be well worth it.

      Here’s another link I found useful when I was starting out. I love the title.
