Yeah, I know a lot of people snort at the idea of using a pre-made WordPress theme, but really? They are just too handy to ignore. Sure, the ones freely available on the WordpPress site (or through the Appearance > Themes function) basically suck… but damn. For $50? You can get a theme that will get you 80% were you want to be, without having to hand code every little thing.
Largely I buy themes through Themeforest.net, simply because you can actually search for items by keyword/platform/whatever. Check them out, it’s kinda ridiculous how far you can get for the price.
