Everyone has to make a living but its sad to see that you only suggest plugins that you can make money on codecanyon. There are some amazing free plugins, that need support and exposure…many of them read your blogs. You aren’t helpingthe community by only highlighting the premium plugins, afterall, Wordpress is still a free platform.
