    Just curious… What is considered to be an ideal width for a blog (if such a thing even exists)?  Is it possible for a site to be too wide?  For instance, my site (clearly a work in progress) is currently set at 1100px.  Is that a visual no no? This is my first blog and I am learning a lot along the way.  Before I really begin to add content, I want to have a site framework that I am happy with.  I am considering reducing the size to 1050px.  Thoughts… My site: http://www.blackboarddreams.com

    Thank you.

    Is it possible for a site to be too wide? Yes.

    Is 1100 too wide? No.

    The latest version of Genesis is 1152px wide:

    I agree with Susan. But you could always make you site responsive to adapt to the viewers screen resolution also.


    Let me help you customize your theme, responsive header, Buddypress, Agentpress or technical issue!

    Thanks for the responses.  I use the prose child theme.  I was under the impression that it was responsive.  If not, how can I make my site responsive?  Thanks again.

    Prose doesn’t show up on the StudioPress site as being responsive.

    You have two basic options – get a theme which is responsive, or make your theme mobile responsive. Here’s a starting off point: http://www.studiopress.com/design/beginners-guide-responsive-design.htm
