Accomplished: WPDesigners One Month Challenge on WordPress Themes

Articles about WordPress ThemesSmall Potatoes of WPDesigner has completed the task of a WordPress Theme a day for the past month, as of tomorrow.

Amazing. And what makes this Ridiculously Mind-Numbing WordPress Self-Challenge even more of an accomplishment is the release of WordPress 2.1 in the middle of the challenge, bringing with it new WordPress template tags and features to screw up the process.

While not all of the WordPress Themes Small Potatoes has done are WordPress 2.1 ready, there are some beautiful and very distinctive designs. He admits he will go through and clean these up a little better to make them WordPress 2.1 and Widget ready after the challenge is through.

Small Potatoes amended the 30 day challenge to 31 days to beat a previous challenger to the WordPress Theme Design Throne, but I challenge him to come up with one more for 32 days, to really put someone else to the test.

What I’m really looking forward to is a summary of what was learned, what expectations were cracked apart, and a good list of tips and techniques for WordPress Theme designers and tweakers around the WordPress Community. I’m in the middle of my own month long self-challenge on WordPress Plugins and I’ve got a lot of lessons I’ve learned to share with you when this is done. You better stand back. ;-)

Kudos, congrats, and high praises for this great accomplishment, Small Potatoes. Really good work.

    I did 31 yesterday, going for 32 today ;). Some readers have asked me to extend a-theme-a-day even further. Although extending it is do-able, I really don’t want to stress myself out and lose all taste for WordPress themes development in the long run.

    Plus, at one point during the challenge, I was taking on custom projects so I literally was doing multiple themes per day. Right now, I’m exhausted and just can’t wait to end the challenge, reflect, and make a review post :).

    This is in no way a reflection on Small Potato.

    What I’d love to see a “fix your themes” monthly challenge. So many themes out there with niggling little bugs. :)

    Congrats to Small Potato, i believe his themes will inspire other people to make more themes to contribute to the WP community, and his themes will been modified to the max :P
