Hey Guys,

I have officially been on ThemeForest for one year! My first theme Notes got accepted a year today! :)

I did intended on writing something a bit more in depth (More like a review) later on, but I just wanted to say thank you to every single person who has bought, commented, or shown off one of my themes.

I never intended to get that involved in creating themes, I started doing them as something to keep me busy whilst waiting for freelance work. A year later and I am working on them full time.

I just wanted to say a big thank you to ThemeForest and the other Evanto communities, as you are blooming awesome.

Mike

Thank you! Really? Only 2 years? I thought you were like the oracle of TF. :)

I must say your tools for authors have been super helpful in my first year!

Thank you! :)

My advice would be to always go with your gut, make the best products you can, and listen to the buyers. If it wasn’t for the buyers asking / suggesting things to add / change in my themes, I don’t think I would have made it this far!

Also remember the community, its packed full of super helpful people!
