Created BuddyPress theme on Oct, 2009 called TagBold– supposed to be first premium-grade open source BuddyPress theme- didn’t happen. Sigh.
At that time, BuddyPress just released version 1.1 and was gaining the momentum- I hand crafted every features they had and added few. Didn’t happen due to two reasons:
- BuddyPress went to huge iteration for the next couple of months
- I got busy with BloggersDotCom and re-used some major UI from TagBold to the Social Network, which actually boosted the popularity pretty fast. I’d built BloggersDotCom on anew framework, where I built similar social features but not BuddyPress in the backend.
And for the same reason (BloggersDotCom) I’ve abandoned months of works for opening up a Theme Shop for WordPress Themes, back in 2009. Well, many theme shops pop up in 2010 and they gained a huge market in next years- while I was busy making the best social network for Bloggers- :)
Interestingly, I’m now working on WordPress theme shop once again at a time when WordPress itself going through another change-set that recently gaining many controversial feedback from the community. This time, I’m staying put and they most likely going to change the world one more time-
Life is wonderful and full of surprise! :))
