The Birdie Theme theme is a 3rd party Genesis Framework theme created for Feminine bloggers. If you’re looking for a minimalistic theme with a focus on writing, then this is the theme for you. There are no big distractions from your work on any of the pages, yet the content is laid out beautifully.
The color scheme of this theme is beautiful, but if it doesn’t fit your taste, you can always customize the colors to suit your preferences.
This theme also includes a side column and three footer widgets. I would recommend that you use this space for an autoresponder widget to collect emails or subscribe for blog updates. This theme has six different layouts to choose from.
Let’s get to all the themes features.
Birdie Theme Features
- Multiple widget areas to choose from
- Widgetized Homepage

- 2 Sidebar areas (use 1 or both, or none!)

Here is a preview of one of the layouts. This is a minimal theme but can be customized into something fantastic. Check out our Genesis Framework Tutorials to find ways to make this theme your own.

Please keep in mind that you will need to have the Genesis Framework already installed on your blog. The cost of the framework is $59.95. This will get you a lifetime membership and free updates for the framework, which is an awesome deal.
If you are a developer, you know you can customize these themes on your own for your clients and add more money to your packaged deals. The Pro Plus StudioPress package is perfect for professional bloggers and developers. Check out the details below.
