Joss over at 901am breaks the news first a few minutes early but that’s ok.

SplashPress Media, owner of numerous sites including The Blog Herald and Performancing, has announced it is acquiring the core assets of Tubetorial LLC including the Tubetorial website and the Cutline Theme Community.

SplashPress Media operates and owns 30 blogs, and a variety of other online web properties. SplashPress Media has been online as a hosting company and a support agency for publishers for a few years before launching several blogs and acquiring others.

According to David Krug, “Over the last year Tubetorial has defined itself as a destination for people looking to learn on the web. We plan to continue that growth and dominance in the future for a long time to come. On a side note the Cutline acquisition allows us to develop customizable themes to fit the needs of the entire blogosphere in a fashion that fits in well with our community at Performancing. Cutline and Tubetorial will be operated independently of SplashPress Media under the guidance of the Performancing Team.”

The great thing about this acquisition is my excitement to see both the Tubetorial community and the Cutline Community grow in a positive direction. I plan to put resources into play to help the Cutline community get as much active support as possible while making themes something that are easy to customize and fit for any level of blogger.

    Nice catch! Tubetorial is a great brand, and Cutline is probably my all-time favorite WP theme. Good luck with both.
