Over the past 10 months or so, I’ve jumped head first into the blogging world. I started my personal blog in October … and little did I know the opportunities that little website would bring me.
Here I am nearly a year later, and it’s been a wild ride!
Back in February, I decided to take a shot at releasing a WordPress theme. It was ugly, and it was rough, but I saw then how my pre-existing knowledge of web development could translate easily into theme development. After that first theme, Cory Miller and I started RockinThemes.com, where we have released over 40 free WordPress themes. We also started an custom theme and website development company and have done very well so far.
We’ve since invited new designers to join us at RT, making it a true multi-user theme release hub.
I’ve spent most of my time in the last few months running RockinThemes, but recently I got the idea that I needed to launch out with a site of my own where I would develop and support a small handful of my most popular themes.
And hence NathanRice.net was born.
I won’t get too heavy on the details at the moment, but for the time being I’m thinking this will be a place where users can personally interact with me as I write tutorials on web design, WordPress development, and blogging.
As you can tell, the design is a work in progress. I’ll be working on it sporadically for the next few days and weeks.
But for now, enjoy the new blog! I hope you stick around and check back often. In fact, I’d love it if you would go ahead and subscribe to my feed. Since this a new blog, you can be one of the few people who can say you’ve read it from the very beginning! 🙂
