Written Review

If you have a WordPress theme or plugin that you want professionally reviewed, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s what you’ll get with my service.

  • Full review from a user perspective.
  • The review will be publicly placed on my blog.
  • At least 1,000 words to cover all aspects of the theme/plugin.
  • I’ll link to the review on my social media accounts (over 14K Twitter followers).

One of the best reasons to have your project reviewed on my blog is that I pull in quality traffic from other WordPress professionals who will take note of your work. The backlinks alone are worth the price of a review. View previous reviews.

I don’t write B.S. or fluff pieces. I call ‘em like I see ‘em. If your project is a dumpster fire, I’m going to say it’s a dumpster fire. That’s how I roll.

If you’re interested in such a review, shoot me an email at justintadlock@gmail.com. Serious inquiries only. Minimum review price begins at $350 and depends on the size of the project.


You need to trust that I’m qualified to write your review. I get it. Below is an outline of my qualifications for the job.


I’ve been working with WordPress since 2005 (and general Web design since 2003). In 2008, I launched Theme Hybrid, one of the oldest and longest-running theme/plugin clubs in existence.

I was a team lead/admin for the official WordPress theme review team for several years and still volunteer as a moderator. I also professionally review theme/plugin code at ThemeReview.co.

Some other interesting tid-bits:

I’ve been around the block a few times.


Unlike many programmers and other tech writers, I actually have formal training in writing. You won’t see a metric ton of misspelled words. You won’t get a new paragraph with each sentence. In other words, the review won’t look like it’s written by a 5th grader dumping words onto the screen so they can get back to playing Fortnite.

I attended Auburn University, one of the top universities in the southeast U.S., from 2002-2007. During my tenure, I earned a B.A. in English with a concentration in creative writing and journalism. This was after growing bored with the software engineering program (funny that I ended up becoming a programmer). While there, I also helped a local high school launch a student-run newspaper.
