The Follow Me theme is a 3rd party Genesis Framework Theme created for the Photography industry. The homepage is not filled with special features but looks amazing and should attract plenty of future subscribers. Using the perfect background image on the homepage is crucial because of the 2 different homepage widgets available to set up. The first widget is a transparent image showcasing the background image and should be used to briefly describe yourself, what the blog is about or the photography skills set that you have.
Inside this widget box is a great idea to add your autoresponder box and then link that widget text to a landing page or blog page if you provide a photography service or any service in general. You have 1 more widget box under this to add anything else you want. You can still tweak this theme with help from our Genesis Framework Tutorials category.
