  1. Hi Ben,

    There seems to be a lot of hate for Jetpack among sections of the community.

    Have you had any pushback from users who would prefer not to have to install it for functionality?

    1. Hey Gary – I’ve not had anything like that. I think the “hatred” of Jetpack tends to come from a vocal minority of developers who don’t like the fact that Jetpack bundles a lot of functionality that they don’t need. Regular (less technical) people seem to enjoy the added functionality and I can’t remember ever having anyone complain about my themes needing it.

  2. Haha ” 99% of the problems and feature requests can be fixed with a display: none;” 😉 So true.

    My first ever theme that I used was Mimbo, your work always inspire me Ben!

  3. Great post Ben!

    I’ve actually started custom developing my own WordPress theme – however I’ve been flirting with the idea of making my own and putting them on the market to sell.

    Your post has some awesome tips for that, thanks again!
