Here is a list of all the different tools, and programs I use and support. Some of these tools are open source, others have a cost associated with them.
Sometimes I might have the option of being an Affiliate for a product. The above diagram explains how affiliate marketing works. But it should be noted that I only support and will list products that I actually use and see value in them.
I won’t promote a tool or product I don’t believe in just for the shake of money. Money is only a tool at the end of the day. Plus anything I promote here has my name and reputation attached to it. As such I am very careful and reserved on what I promote.
My goal at the end of the day is to help people, not to see them taken advantage of. So I hope you feel safe in my corner of the internet, knowing you are getting honesty with no hidden agenda.
