New themes are always being developed and you are informed through your site how they look and what they offer. Some cost money, many are free with an option to build in other features which would cost money. I have never paid anything. I am satisfied with how I can construct my site and as many know WordPress has become my main blogging station. I get a lot of interaction from others and have met many new friends.
Imagine my surprise when I received an e-mail from the WordPress people yesterday telling me that one of my blogs had been featured on their freshly pressed site. This is a site where they pick out various blogs and highlight them. They also informed that I would probably get quite a feed back and my widget was ready to be put on my site. They were not kidding. Today I got 300 views on my site and my award winning blog Weekly Writing Challenge: A Manner of Speaking had a record amount of visitors.
So please allow me this little bit of showing off, I have been blogging for more than five years and when something like this happens you have a sort of satisfied feeling.
