WordPress themes are so awesome.
There is a great new Monstroid theme review over at Thereisathemeforthat.com, and TemplateMonster has outdone themselves. The theme has more options, more premium plugins included, more free PSD files and graphics to use without license, than any WordPress theme I have seen.
From CodeinWP, (via WPTavern), there is a summer drama being played out between Automattic and Chris Pearson, and it goes on and on. Suffice to say, it is worth the read, and it still is not finished.
At WPMU DEV, Brenda has a good take on why you should default to double-opt-in for all of your email campaigns starting today.
And PremiumWP has a scary look at WordPress website Alexa traffic ranks, and if they are really declining.
