Elegant Themes Giveaway – Answer Those Questions To Win!

Elegant Themes

Elegant Themes is surely one of the best WordPress themes store out there. I’ve had the pleasure of customizing some of their themes for clients in the past and I’ve found they’re very easy to work with, well-coded and definitely great-looking.

So, to start the year on the right track we’ve partnered with Elegant Themes to give away 4 unlimited access memberships to their theme club! What this means is you’ll have access to all their themes for a full year! (a $19.95 value)
