WPWeekly Episode 137 – Making A Living On ThemeForest With Jonathan Atkinson

In this episode of WordPress Weekly, we were joined by Jonathan Atkinson of Cr3ative.com and discussed what it’s like to make a living using ThemeForest. We dived into a number of topics including:

  • Using ThemeForest as a launch platform
  • The reputation of ThemeForest
  • Can theme authors profit while coding themes the right way
  • How theme authors can differentiate themselves without having every theme option available

This is a fantastic discussion that I encourage everyone to listen to. I’d especially like to hear feedback from other sellers on ThemeForest. Marcus Couch helped us wrap up the show by providing his three plugin picks of the week.

Stories Discussed:

Would You Attend A WooCamp?
WiredTree To Sponsor All North American WordCamps In 2014
Widget Customizer Approved For WordPress 3.9
BuddyPress 2.0 Development Kicks Off, Release Set for Mid-April

Plugins Picked By Marcus:

WP Like System is a rating system for WordPress posts, based on Facebook likes. Allow users like (and undo) your blog posts. A user’s likes are saved directly on your database, like a WordPress native component, which means users can give you a “like” without a Facebook account. This would be great to change the “like” term to something else, and use an alternative icon instead of the thumbs up. Overall a good plugin.

Responsive Post Preview has functionality that I envision being a part of WordPress core someday. It allows you to preview a post as it would look on multiple devices. Choose mobile or tablet device size for your preview. This plugin makes it so much easier to format your responsive content to make certain that everything lines up the way you want it to.

WP Grass – The grass grows higher and higher on the footer when you have not published any new content. Once you create something new, the grass is freshly cut and mowed down.
