WordPress theme & plug in reviews


(Ben) #1

Hi all,

My names Ben and I’m not a coder. Sounds like an intro for an AA meeting!

I review WordPress themes and plugins with an unbiased user view. I pull no punches and aim to help consumers making the right choice when looking for a theme or plugin.

I thought I’d just throw my hat in the ring to offer my review services on http://wpin.me

If you’re interested in a review you can view my contact page for my deets.

Hey Ben - I’m also Ben :slight_smile:
Welcome to WPChat!

Sounds like a cool service. I get the sense that too many developers don’t consider how non-developers would interact with their product. Welcome!

Hey Ben,

I know you from Twitter! I thought I’d start to use WPChat in earnest!

Thanks for the welcome :wink:

Hey Leland,

Thanks for your kind comment and of course the welcome! I try to focus on the user as opposed to the developer when I write reviews.

For me it’s a niche that I feel perfectly suited for. I’m an administrator of WordPress, have been for over 8 years. I know it very well from a user point of view.

A lot of blogs about WP focus on coding, I do not as I cannot code a lick. I’m not targeting that audience I’m targeting those like me. Users.

Of which there must be a fair amount, so I’m aiming to help those like me who perhaps are stuck on what’s the best theme for x or the best plugin for y.

Looking forward to connecting with folks here!

No problem @BenWPin . Glad you like them :slight_smile: You’ll sure love the Widget Options Plugin for WordPress, it recently surpasses 10k installation and got a lot of 5-star ratings from the users.

Cheers,
Jeffrey
