About

I got sick and tired of reading blogs with spammy affiliate links promoting half backed WordPress themes, plugins and self promoting services. So I thought, make it simple, keep it simple. Readers can submit themes / plugins they rate and leave feedback on them.

To my mind, the biggest issue is that I don't know who Ben is - why should I trust his curation expertise? The site doesn't reveal anything at all about its creator, except that he is fresh out of fucks!

Second, the curation is limited to 4-5 lines of the theme description - it feels more like Ben is "selling" the theme rather than explaining why he included it in his list.

Third, he is dismissive of the many articles that address the same issue. However, as a layperson trying to develop a website, I will trust a Google search more - wisdom of the crowd, yada, yada.

Pros:

The idea of curating & showcasing themes by indie developers is nice!

Cons:

Seems to lack any distinctive USP vis-a-vis the other markets
