Blog Revamp: Embracing Thesis Theme for WordPress

A few days ago, I’ve been busy checking some stats of my blog when I figured out that there was a quite big bounce rate going on. Maybe because of the header ticker’s size that it consumes so much bandwidth that it really takes time to load and considering that majority of readers online have very low patience and doesn’t have the entire day to wait for a certain web page to load, they wouldn’t care at all but given this situation, I do.

As a result, I’ve decided to find other ways to reduce my blog’s bounce rate and hopefully find a better theme to use on my blog until I came across the highly talked about Thesis Theme for WordPress. It was nifty, clean, and SEO friendly according to most webmasters’ feedback.

I certainly was skeptical at first so I run a test drive of the theme on my other blog and it was stunningly beautiful. What else can you ask for from a great WordPress Theme that almost has it all? It’s very easy to use, light-weight, and highly customizable.

Like most new users, I’m still trying to learn the tweaks and hacks of the theme so I can get the most out of it especially since somebody just gave it to me and I don’t have access to DIYThemes support forum, so it’s really a hurdle but I’ll give it a go anyway.

For the meantime, I’m pretty satisfied with the theme and hopefully I could do more changes in the next few days when I get the chance. Are you happy with your current blog theme or has recently switched themes like I do?

    Your right, User experience should always be considered when choosing the theme for the site. I am planning to change mine because its not good on IE6 (yes, i still got traffic from this version). BTW, nice theme choice.

  3. I have been using Thesis from 4 months and I highly recommend this theme to all.
    It’s SEO and typography is amazing, more over Customization of Thesis might feel little
    tricky at the beginning but once you get kick of it, you will enjoy editing and modifying this theme.

    Hi Harsh,
    We feel exactly the same way about Thesis. It is highly customizable, can be confusing at times but it’s very SEO friendly.
    I only depend on the customizations that I could find over the Internet mainly because this copy was just given to me which means I don’t have access to the forums. If in case you already have version 1.6, you might want to share it with me if that’s alright.

    Thanks for dropping by and I hope to see you here more often!
