Just over two years ago, I created a site called Shaped Pixels where I designed and released various styles of WordPress themes—both free and premium versions alike. I can easily say that it’s been interesting and rewarding to continue being part of the WordPress community as the overall market is continuously progressing to better things. I know this because 26% of the internet uses WordPress!
However, to quote a popular idiom “all good things must come to an end”, I have decided to call it quits and to move on with an exciting new direction and concept for myself. I will still be working within the WordPress community, just in a slight different role with a little Joomla thrown in as well.
The important part is that this is not the end of Shaped Pixels because I have passed the reins to Imre and his business partner Neil, both of which are developers themselves. They also run another popular theme site that I am very familiar with, so I am confident you are getting an experienced team who will look after everyone very well and will take Shaped Pixels to a whole new level.
Was it an easy decision for me to make? Not at all, but with my new venture, there was no way that I could manage it and Shaped Pixels at the same time without jeopardizing the ongoing success of Shaped Pixels. There’s also the fact that I have not had a vacation in 6 years, so I am planning to take some time off and really looking forward to it—finally!
I should mention that I will still be performing theme support throughout the transition from February and into March, at which point I will officially no longer be at Shaped Pixels.
In closing, I would like to give a really big thank you to everyone who has supported both me and the Shaped Pixels website. Without you, I would not have been able to achieve the success we accomplished together and hope you will continue to support Imre and Neil as they continue to make Shaped Pixels the best place to get quality designed themes. When you get the chance, drop them a line to say hello and to welcome them to Shaped Pixels.
