A measly 24, I don’t use my referral link as much as I should though, really haven’t done much self promotion at all for templates

Which brings up a good question—if you do self promotion, what do you use and how do you go about it? Twitter? Blogging?

Why should I use twitter? I have no idea.

I feel the same way, doesn’t really appeal to me on a personal level. It seems that unless you have a large following of people nobody’s going to be looking or care to look at your page. I can definitely see how companies can benefit from it, but for personal use meh…

I almost always have a theme in mind.

Same here I’ll usually have a main color in mind then use colorlovers.com to search for some palettes, then I’ll mix, match and tweak them to get my final scheme

I had one of my sites completely ripped not to long ago, not the best feeling in the world.

Have you contacted the site owner? Here’s he’s info:

Looks like he’s also hosted with Dreamhost, you could contact them as well.

a little late to the party on this one but….

like everyone else email newsletters is something I dread doing, not sure if I would throw some in the mix…as others have said its such a pain to test across all the different clients, and most people use services like CampaignMonitor or MailChimp, etc…which include a basic set of templates that can be customized, tested and sent all within their system
