This week I have been finishing off a new theme for ThemeFurnace, which I will be launching next week – I spent a bit of time in Photoshop developing a couple of theme ideas and a new site design for ThemeFurnace so looking forward to building that.
Also did a little more work on my new blog which I will also be unveiling next week – bought some recording equipment in for it as I will be doing some videos – first time doing that so quite a scary thing to hear what I actually sound like! To be notified of it’s launch, signup for the WPLift newsletter in our sidebar as I will mention it in a weekly newsletter.
