)-- Themespotter's list of the most innovative WordPress themes of 2011 includes themes designed by AppThemes, PageLines, Elegant Themes, Woo Themes, Templatic and others. While WordPress was developed as publishing software for blogs, it has become powerful business software and is now used to power the websites of many successful businesses throughout the world. This year’s list reflects how far developers are pushing the boundaries of WordPress, and how the software can be a website playform for virtually any industry. Themespotter’s list includes website themes that make starting a business directory, coupon website, daily deals website, eCommerce site and others easier than ever.

Themespotter is a WordPress theme marketplace aimed at small businesses and pro-bloggers. On themespotter.com, visitors can view the best WordPress themes by category, designer, style, and features, as well as easily trying out live theme demos. Before websites such as Themespotter, people shopping for WordPress themes had to visit the websites of every WordPress theme developer individually to view and demo themes, which could be a very time consuming process.
"I created Themespotter after becoming frustrated with the process of shopping for WordPress themes," says Themespotter founder Dustin Glass. "I'm very pleased to be showcasing all the best WordPress themes on one website, and in a way that's easy for small businesses and bloggers to search and shop for website themes. While the website just launched earlier this year, people are already finding it very helpful.”
Founded in March of 2011, Themespotter already features WordPress themes from nearly thirty of the top theme designers, with plans of adding several more in the near future. "The concept behind Themespotter is different than other theme marketplaces out there," says Mr. Glass. "There are websites that highlight the fact that they feature well over 1,000 themes, but I think that is the wrong approach, as clutter makes it difficult for people to find what they really want. People should not have to sort through several hundred themes that aren’t worth considering to try to filter out the best option for their website." The goal of Themespotter is to focus on all the best WordPress themes from reputable designers. In Mr. Glass’s view, people should purchase themes from developers that take their business seriously, provide technical support, and are committed to building great WordPress themes for the long-term.
In addition to being a marketplace for themes, Themespotter features articles designed to help businesses and bloggers get started with WordPress, as well as articles with WordPress tips.
With the recent release of WordPress 3.3, now is a great time for businesses and bloggers to switch to WordPress to power their websites. WordPress themes make having an amazing website very easy and affordable. When asked whether Themespotter plans on featuring themes from other software, Mr. Glass noted that he is considering adding website templates for other open-source software, but in the mean time his focus is on WordPress.
