What makes content remarkable? It might be humor, a clever analogy or metaphor, an original, colorful graphic  or it might be something you can use in your own life. If you’re a word press ‘developer’ who uses Thesis and has trouble explaining what Thesis does for a blog, this post makes at least 3 of those four points.

Bert Mahoney (who also goes by “Berchman”) explains why Thesis is like the chocolate in a Peanut M&M in visual terms, as well as words.

Top  “Remarkability” Factors:
