To those who don’t read the archives of the “Site News” category, today is exactly one year after Theme Lab was launched.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone and everything who made all of this possible, go over a little Theme Lab history, as well as let you know what is in store for the future.
This post will be very long and gushy, so if you don’t like long and gushy posts – you should probably stop reading now.
Theme Lab was launched by me, Leland, one year ago. In the span of a year, we’ve gone through 3 designs.
These thank yous will be broken up into a few categories, since there are a lot of people to thank. This is in no particular order.
Thank you to the following commentators. These loyal readers of Theme Lab have commented on numerous posts.
The following WordPress-related blogs have helped Theme Lab grow in one way or another.
- Weblog Tools Collection
- Smashing Magazine
- WP Candy
- WP Project
- Hack WordPress
- Blog Perfume
- Blog Herald
- Lorelle on WP
- WPMU Tutorials
Of course, how could I forget about WordPress itself? And it’s lead developers.
My apologies if I forgot anyone.
Expect to see some more great free WordPress themes, tips, tutorials, and more in the future. I’m also going to experiment with some paid content and perhaps subscription membership. Don’t worry though, you’ll still be able to get good stuff for free.
A question I get asked a lot is, “will you ever sell Theme Lab?” In short, the answer is: not any time soon. I understand that sites like Theme Lab require a certain amount of care and love for the community, although a $66,000 offer may make me think twice.
Of course, I’m only kidding.
In the comments, I’d like to hear how you originally found Theme Lab. Was it via search engine, word of mouth, Entrecard, Twitter?
Thank you for reading and sticking around Theme Lab. I appreciate your readership.
Looking for web hosting?
Question: What's the best type of web hosting?
Answer: The kind you don't have to worry about.
And that's precisely why I recommend HostGator. I've been using them myself for years and they've been nothing short of superb.
Fast load times, great support, WordPress-friendly, and good prices. Not much more you can ask for.
New customers can get 25% off of any HostGator web hosting package with the coupon: themelab25percentoffNote: I am a HostGator affiliate, but that doesn't make my recommendation any less genuine.
