I am a regular user of GeneratePress, just like everyone else here. I’m not one of Tom’s buddies, and he has not in any way asked me to write this post. I have met Tom a couple times through this forum, just like most of you. Because of all the value I see him providing, I am writing to suggest that anyone here who is in a position to donate extra to Tom consider doing so.
If, like me, you have been around the block with other “customize it yourself without touching code” types of themes, then surely you know you struck gold when you found GeneratePress. And if, like me, you have received Tom’s highly generous and skilled support, you know that Tom himself is a gem.
I feel Tom asks for very little compensation for what he provides…the cost of the add-ons is all that is required to have complete freedom over our own websites, and Tom asks nothing in return for the support he provides. Tom does, however, provide a way to donate to the further development of GP, which I would love for everyone to consider doing.
I’m not suggesting anyone cause hardship for themselves. But if everyone gives only what they comfortably can afford, even if it seems like a small amount, all put together we could reward Tom highly, as he deserves. It looks like there are thousands of GP users now…small amounts from lots of users could add up quickly and make a big difference for Tom.
