  1. Great list, the Google+ WP theme was news to me! Also Pengb‘s Inspiration is very nice.

    Another theme I think you should really consider adding is Mingle, you can see an example on my site!

  2. What’s most amazing to me is how many high quality themes keep showing up for free on WordPress. As the years go by, that just keeps increasing as the community grows – and I think it’s a great thing.

    Considering the thousands of themes out there these days, I think you did a good job of showcasing some of the newest, best, and brightest. Each has its own distinct differences, rather than just being the first 40 you came across – I enjoyed the variety, anyway :)

    My only problem now is deciding which one to use!
