5 Genesis Child Themes for Tech Sites

There are so many attractive magazine themes available for WordPress. Unfortunately, not all of them have a clean code. In fact, it is so easy to get fooled by attractive premium themes if you don’t analyze their code. When in doubt, I always go with Genesis. It is a powerful framework and the code is quite solid. Genesis is easy to learn and master too.
