WordPress Portfolio Themes

Some of my friends ask me to create a tutorial on How to Create a WordPress Theme, so I did a couple of searches and trying to find out what will be the competition for such post. Then I figured out that those past tutorials are really good, why not round them up into a new post? After all these guys did a pretty good job about this topic and creating a new one won’t make it to the top page in SERP anyway.

I also check my bookmarks to include them into the list, these guys helped me a lot when I was learning about WordPress. If you wanted to learn how to make wordpress theming, you should check them out!
