I ran a contest to redesign my site and then got the winning design marked up into a WordPress theme. It has a few bugs – particularly because the Markup guys had to second guess the plug-ins I was using. For example, I haven’t gotten the “Get Recent Comments” to work yet in the sidebar and I also seem to have two different social bookmarking plugins working. (OK – that last one I can fix as soon as I have posted this)
Overall though, I like it. Joost always said “You can’t have a big enough signup button“. Well – I tried! Since I have a server dedicated to an email marketing suite we bought years ago and hardly ever use, I thought a newsletter signup was good just for extra belt and braces call to action.
So the total cost of this? Well – some of you will say I was robbed, others will say it was a bargain. I felt I paid a fair market rate all along the way, though.
So what do you think of it?
