Being a active member from 2years in themeforest but didn’t able to make any theme here :( I got many freelance work from here … many customers are happy with me… mostly buyers ask in themeforest have your own themes? and then i telling them i am planing to make wp theme etc etc but at the end i am not able to get much time to create themes here is because i am full time job person and in free time i do freelance + Education and between these activities i havn’t left much time to create themes for themeforest marketplace.. I know its also big support/contribution to marketplace from authors who makes great themes/stuffs as result community gets huge earnings and rewards.

Envato gave me many freelance business but i didn’t contribute anything to envato :(:(... Today i read my very old post for my PSD was corrupted and want to know how to recover it: http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/photoshop-cs5-psd-file-currptnot-open-my-lots-hard-work/44020

i saw the latest comment to my post from community member who reply to my 2years old post …. and it remind me that psd was basically i designed to make theme to sell themeforest.

Well guys i am not happy feeling Dumb, lazy blah blah blah :(:depressed::S

  • – Day 03: Design contact page/ full width page

  • – Day 05: Design different colour schemes and polish up everything
  • – Day 06: Weekend, Spend time with family and friends
  • – Day 07: Weekend, Spend time with family and friends
  • Week 2: Markup
  • – Day 08: Code up base theme, home page etc
  • – Day 09: Code contact page/ full width page / archive page
  • – Day 10: Code search results page / blog page
  • – Day 11: Create different colour scheme versions of theme
  • – Day 12: Browser test

Do a little bit each day, but don’t stop and KEEP TO THE PROJECT PLAN. As they say “inch by inch, anything’s a cinch”.

Don’t become overwhelmed with making your theme, stick to your project plan and it doesn’t become so big and scary does it? You are following a project plan, right?

Oh and get off the forums!

Good luck
