Today I got a short, jolly email from the WordPress theme reviewers:
Congratulations, your new theme Scherzo is now available to the public at https://wordpress.org/extend/themes/scherzo
Scherzo is the first theme I submitted to the theme directory, and it took quite a bit of work to knock into shape. If you develop themes I thoroughly recommend going ‘official’; you’ll learn a few things about WordPress and you’ll produce something that’ll be of more value to bloggers. Incidentally, the reviewers do a great job.
God knows if anyone’ll bother downloading the theme and how they’ll rate it, but I’m glad I did it.
Anyway: go fill your boots.
