It is hard work giving money away, and it seems it is hard work voting for which WordPress plugin author should receive $100.
Whilst it might appear that there was an increase of votes this time around, with 29 votes instead of 24, that doesn’t allow for the fact that 8 votes were added as a bonus. Thus there were only 21 fresh votes.
Again at least there were no rigged votes.
Here is the voting:-
|Plugin||# of Votes|
|SEO Title Tag||5|
The clear winner was Dofollow
I will be continuing the practice of carrying forward half the value of votes through to the next round.
I am looking for more nominations for Best WordPress Plugin, and hopefully next time round we will see more voting.
Proof of $100 Donation:-
Amount: $100.00 USD Transaction ID: 81Y43496U4479182L Subject: Donation For Top WordPress Plugins - Dofollow (April 2007) Message: This is a donation for Dofollow, which was both nominated by my readers and subsequently voted for by my readers as a Top WordPress Plugin.
I have more reviews to do, so there will definitely be at least one donation being made this month, possibly two if I get a couple more reviews.
While Matt focuses on the negative side of paid posts, I like to focus on the positive side, writing quality content that adds real value for my readers, and then donating the proceeds to WordPress plugin authors.
I wonder what percentage of WordPress theme and plugin authors sell links from their website, and how that compares to the amount of money they earn from donations?
When Robert Scoble announced that he was no longer going to speak at PostieCon, it gained a number of blog reactions, and even Michael Arrington from Techcrunch found time to leave a comment.
