A new theme for Only The 80s?

I’m currently looking for a new theme for the site. When I initially created it, it was on the list of ‘to do’ things, but I never got around to it (sound familiar?).

In the meantime, if anyone would like to design me a new theme for the site, please leave a comment at the bottom of the post.

If I like it and end up using it, I will let the lucky person have some (permanent) aknowledgement and advertising space on my site.

On the blog pages, there are links to suscribe via iTunes and the more popular readers (including the RSS feed). ALL the past podcasts are there too, so you have plenty of listening to do in order to catch up.

Once I build the site up a bit more, I think I’ll email Steve and ask him to mention my site on one of his podcasts, or even better, write an article.
