Apologies in Advance
I have been using Word Press for some time. I am a novice and only use it when something drastic happens to my site. You could call me an amateur. I deleted my site by mistake the other day and have spent days looking for an easy template to create it again. I discovered Genesis but was initially put off by having to pay for Genesis and then a theme. If you are reading this and are thinking the same - take the plunge. Had I done this earlier it would have saved me a lot of time. There is so much help available here.
I looked at other theme sites and judged them by the support on the forums - many are non existent - questions never replied to. But Studiopress is cock-a-block with support and every challenge seems to have been tackled. No one is bashing anyone up.
So here I am - an amateur batting in the professional league. The apology is for when I get stuck. And use layman terms.
Enjoy the day.
