Adopting a Block-First Theme Strategy using Genesis

Adopting a Block-First Theme Strategy using Genesis with Chris Baldelomar. The use of the new block editor (Gutenberg) has been steadily increasing since it’s release in December 2018, but there are still lots of sites and developers who have yet to embrace the new capabilities.

In this episode of PressThis we interview Chris Baldelomar of Web Plant Media about his journey adopting a block-first theme strategy using the Genesis Framework.

Chris shares his experience switching from using non-block based themes and generic marketplace themes to developing custom Genesis child themes leveraging the block editor. Chris began his journey right as Gutebmerg was released and discusses the pros and cons of both approaches based on his experience.
