For those that follow some of the more prominent members of the WordPress community, you have probably noticed that those at the top have become a very close group.   I’ve always felt that this is a wonderful thing, but it has the side effect of making it difficult for a newcomer to break into those ranks and earn the respect of their peers.

One of those up and coming designers who is trying to get noticed is Roy Guan.  A few months ago Roy entered into the crowded premium themes community with the launching of his website, Theme Junkie.  In order to grab a foothold within this very busy space, Roy has managed to find a niche within a niche, offering all of his premium designs for under $30.00.  In only about six months time Theme Junkie has already made available a large selection of premium themes as well as two free themes.

Below I wanted to take a moment and feature a few of my favorite designs already available from Theme Junkie:

FreshLife Theme

NewsTube Theme

Portal Theme

Each theme includes a demo so you can view an example of a website using the theme.  You’ll also get full theme support, a custom control panel, and a variety of standard features across all available themes:

  • Advanced Theme Control Panel
  • Auto-sized Thumbnail Management
  • Fully Widgeted Sidebars
  • Advertisement Management
  • Analytics/Stat Management
  • Built-in FeedBurner Support
  • Threaded Comments
  • Gravatar Ready
  • Custom Page Templates
  • Drop-down Menu Navigation
  • WordPress 2.9+ Compatible
  • Cross-Browsers Compatibility
  • Email & Forum Support
  • Lifetime Upgrade

Lastly, I wanted to share a sample of a typical control panel which is included with the themes:

FreshLife Control Panel

In summary, not only am I a fan of Theme Junkie themes, but I’m also an all-inclusive member!  Having quality templates handy when launching a new website or blog always comes in handy, so I should be covered next time I launch a new website or blog.

If you decide you are also interested in joining the Theme Junkie community, prices on designs start at only $39.95.  Developer’s can also get access to EVERY Theme Junkie theme (including future releases) for as little as $59.95.  You can find more information here.
