Why should Deb have all the fun with her shiny new blog?

I wasn’t really happy with my previous theme so I splurged and dressed the site up in this hot little number. Ain’t she fine? So fine.

The state of WordPress themes continues to be a sore spot. Commercial themes are either spewed from Theme Farms where a few PHP coders churn out many different variants of the same thing over and over, or lonely devs slaving away at adsense integration in their painstakingly, handcrafted, bespoke themes. WordPress itself is showing its age. I’d say bad things about PHP being the root of all evil, but after a day of wrestling with ssl certs and dns fiddling, I haven’t got the strength.
