Whilst the traditional saying is “Pretty in Pink” that saying is not universally true. Vlad clearly demonstrates how ugly a website can be when dressed in pink.

I earn money from this blog, but as I have hinted in the past, that isn’t my primary goal. I write paid reviews for products that take a fair amount of time, but nothing compared to the amount of time WordPress plugin authors spend on their creations, only to give them away for free and often still provide support.
