ThemeGarden launched in late September as a new WordPress theme marketplace, and theme author applications were accepted. Upon launch, the promise was made that no monthly charges would be made to theme authors for three months in order to give the site time to gain traction. The curator of ThemeGarden, Jason Schuller, announced this week that this free period for authors would continue indefinitely, “until the site gains more traction within the WordPress community.”
Two months after launch ThemeGarden is home to 16 theme authors and over 70 themes. The marketplace currently includes free themes, exclusive themes, as well as themes from well known commercial theme brands like StudioPress and WooThemes.
Schuller makes the case for submitting your WordPress themes to the marketplace:
If you are a WordPress theme author, you really have absolutely nothing to lose by applying for an author account on ThemeGarden.com… In short, if you have something to sell, just fill out an author application and I will get you set up with an author account right away.
