I have opened up the voting for the first round of my cash giveaway for WordPress plugin authors.
Nominations for the Best WordPress Plugin each month are made by my readers, and half my income from paid reviews is given away as donations to help support development costs of the best WordPress plugins.
Donations are going to be made (if possible) in large chunks of $100
Voting will be open until sometime during the morning of Friday 6th April (EST) – hopefully that will give the winner some nice additional beer money for the weekend.
Earnings to date for paid reviews: $30 + $75 + $98 = $203
That means the first giveaway will be for $100 this Friday
More details can be found on the Nominations for the Best WordPress Plugins page
I decided to try using the WP-Polls plugin to run these polls for a number of reasons.
- WordPress Plugin Authors like their plugins being used
- It has lots of powerful configuration options
- It will add more relevant content to my site
- It doesn’t pull information from a 3rd party server, potentially slowing down loading
