You can learn design in time, but the best way to start is to partner with a designer and split income with him.

Or can try your luck on CodeCanyon. Think on the idea and write a plugin (jQuery or WP), and if its become popular then you can make nice money for a long time. Of course, a lot of items on CC are not profitable (or low), but if you really come with great idea and item that make life easier for many people then you will succeed.

I have gone back and forth about going this route. I had a few ideas I wanted to build into a WordPress theme, but I wasn’t ready to build a whole theme.

It makes more sense to go the theme route, even if you have to learn design, or better, find a designer to make PSDs for you.

I think I heard this will change soon and extended license will cost more, or there will be more license options. But anyway to include in theme you going to pay more. Not sure when it will happen.
