Let me start off by saying I’m completely addicted to WordPress! Why?…#1 Quality Web Designers (Top of my List = @Webtreatsetc – @Kriesi – @elegantthemes – @ormanclark – @makedesign),#2 Customer Support for Themes (Be careful here…some are better than others),

#3 Plugins – There are thousands and thousands of plugins available #4 Open Source – Which means better quality, higher reliability, more flexibility, lower cost, and an end to predatory vendor lock-in. #5 Amazing Premium Themes (Check out @elegantthemes and @envatowebdesign). With this in mind have you noticed Tumblr Like WordPress Themes popping up everywhere.
