  1. Theme looks ok .. but isnt it like just another prosense theme ..?

    PS: why do you have 2 check box for subscribing to comments ? and both ticked by default?? Don’t you think it is a overkill?

  2. I got to level 8 and either got bored or frustrated, not sure which.

  3. I’m quickly finding out what losing a #1 ranking is worth. My host blocked the Googlebot for some reason, and I was dropped from the SERPs!!!! I’m doing everything I can to get it back though.

    • Ouch, hope you recover soon Justin.

    • Any chance you’ll be mentioning the host’s name? I use a couple and that’s definitely one I’d like to avoid!

      • Actually, I still HIGHLY recommend the host, they are the best I’ve ever used. They did it proactively to prevent the server from being taken down. I’m actually starting to think that it may have been a competitor spoofing the Googlebot, doing a DOS attack on my server. Especially considering the timing, right after the National Post did an article on me.

        The host is hostgator by the way.

  4. Thanks for the mention :) For some strange reason I had that in my head for many months before finally posting it.

  5. I downloaded the Revolution theme, 2 columns. Nice & simple.

  6. I’m quite a fan of Brian’s themes and use the Revolution Magazine one on my site, I’ll have to download this one and maybe use it on another site in the future.

    Cheers!

  7. Brians designs are truly awesome. Simple and yet nice to the eyes. The only downside is that so many people feel the same which won’t make your design stand out.
