…to read my follow up article about the debate over sponsored themes.
A little background:
Over the last six months or so, there have been arguments going back and forth about the appearance of sponsored themes in the WordPress community. A sponsored theme is a theme in which a theme designer has been paid to insert links to a website. This is just another form of link buying. I personally have no problems with this, as long as the theme designer is up front and honest about the fact that the theme he is distributing for free does include paid links.
Anyway, please keep in mind that this is only once side of the story and I encourage all of you to do a search and see what other people have to say. The Blog Herald has a post with a good set of links to start with.
