So, the jazzsequence.com redesign is still on (or at least planned), but I figured, since I just got a theme hosted in the WordPress.org themes repository, I might as well make it, you know, my theme so that at least one person is using it live, right? So here it is: Museum Core. I’ve also disabled WPTouch so if you’re looking at it in a mobile browser, you can see it in all its responsive glory.
I’m really excited about this theme. Not just because it’s badass and not just because I spent over a year developing it. Those things, too. But because…wait, no, it’s pretty much because it’s badass. I learned a lot through the whole process, particularly the theme review process, and it took over a month of revising and revising to get this (my first (accepted) submission to the repository) actually hosted on WordPress.org. It’s no small feat. It requires dedication, the ability to take criticism, and willingness to adhere to WordPress’ (high) standards. I don’t say that to pat myself on the back. I say that because it’s effing hard. Okay, yeah, and to pat myself on the back. A little bit. But possibly WordPress says it best on their page about why you would want to host your themes on WordPress.org:
The goal of our themes directory isn’t to have every theme in the world, it’s to have the best.
That’s their words, not mine. I certainly wouldn’t call my theme the best. But it’s damn fine (if I do say so myself) and I’m going to stand behind it and show it off for a little bit by making it the theme for my website. I’m allowed to do that. If you want to download it, go get it here: Museum Core.
