Seems like everyone wants to jump on the themeforest wagon lol. How do you guys plan on starting? I’m just curious. I have barely any experience in web development, so I’d have to start from square one. :(

Sounds like a good place to start. I was right there a few years ago. I still have a lot to learn, but i am amazed at where this journey is taking me and – beyond the TF sales – the amount of opportunities and work partnerships it has opened up to me. Get started today!

I think I will start today, actually. You gave me the boost of motivation that I needed. That, and I read some interviews from the top authors of TF. How did you learn? Did you take an online course or something?

Here’s what I have done personally:

1) signed up to Tuts + Premium. Most useful courses for me were the ones by Adi Purdilla and Jeffrey Way – these guys are awesome!

2) Buy a few HTML templates on ThemeForest and study the heck out of them, tear them apart and try put them back together.

3) learn Bootstrap, Foundation, Skeleton or another CSS framework – and try build a few projects with them!

4) when you feel like you are getting somewhere, try upload it to TF. You will probably get hard rejected and discouraged by the “coldness” of the rejection e-mail. Don’t give up, that’s a step every author (most of them) had to overcome. Post a link to your rejected work in the item discussion forum and ask for feedback – the community is great and you will get very useful tips!

5) keep reading stuff, learning, following new trends, look at popular items on TF.. Things will start falling into place.. Most of all, have fun and enjoy the ride!

Good luck! :-)

Awesome. I wrote a lot of this down. I also got some of the Wordpress books from back when I had tuts premium. I just haven’t read them yet. I’d get tuts prem again, but my bank was being a butt and not accepting Australian payments (I have no idea why). I tried to work with my bank, but their customer service sucks. I’ll try my best. I’ve decided to make 2014 my “make it or break it” year. Wordpress is on the top of my list, for sure. Thanks a lot, man!
