  1. Hey Jan Very Impressive list of Upcoming WordPress themes.Looking forward to using some of these on my blog Morningtadka.Keep up the good work

    • Hi Joel,

      thanks, glad you liked it! In this month I hope to publish my premium coming soon / landing page WordPress Theme, could maybe be a good alternative for these free themes (cuz there aren’t much features on these free examples). But I’ll guess I will write about that later, .. of course here on the gonzoblog ;-P

      Thanks for commenting, enjoy your day! Cheers & Ciao!

  2. Well, I was aware of the fact that there are so many free coming soon wordpress themes available. Had I any idea, I would not have wasted my money to get one designed. Btw, thanks for sharing.

    • Hi Sandra,

      yep, there’s a lot of free and (relatively) good free themes to make a landing page and/or coming soon page! Altho I am aware of this huge collection of free coming soon pages I decided (after writing this article) that the ‘ultimate’ coming soon template still hasn’t been designed yet .. I hope that my premium ‘coming soon’ Theme will fill that gap?

      Hope to find a theme garden next week to sell it there? If you want, I’ll keep you posted!? Enjoy your evening, Cheers & Ciao!
