Earlier today Brian Gardner announced the StudioPress Marketplace, a new section of their site where developers from their community building on the Genesis framework can sell their child themes.
Before today there was no official place to sell Genesis child themes. In fact, Gardner would typically direct anyone interested in selling their Genesis child themes over to Jason Schuller’s ThemeGarden, where the Genesis category was growing strong with more than two dozen themes for sale.
Today’s is a soft launch, which means only hand picked developers and a handful of four themes are starting out in the StudioPress Marketplace. The developers currently listed are Dre Armeda, Lauren Mancke, Brad Potter, and Lauren Gaige. Instructions for submitting themes for consideration will come in time.
Today is a busy day, with quite a few folks traveling to WordCamp San Francisco (see our ongoing coverage), but you can be sure we’ll be connecting with Brian Gardner next week to talk about what this means for the future of StudioPress.
What do you think? Is this the right direction for StudioPress to go? And how many internet points do I get awarded for guessing pretty well a few months ago?
