    Kadence Themes Are Awesome - Ascend Is Right Up There With The Best

    Once again, Kadence Themes came out with another great one. I have been using Kadence Themes for my sites and recommending them to friends and clients for over a year now. (I do a ton of work with Kadence Virtue). So I am really use to the layouts and the settings. If you want a solid theme that will not hinder SEO - go with Ascend. I'm building with it today and will probably buy the paid version and do more builds in the next month.
