The Importance of Being Grateful

thanksgivingPeople are never fully satisfied with anything. We just want more, we wish everything could be better (or at least different), dreaming of Summer in Winter and freezing under conditioners on hot sunny days. To think of it this is one of the reasons we did not get stuck in the middle of the Stone Age, but on the other hand this trait leaves us with too many things we take for granted. That’s why we still need Thanksgiving Day – to remind us to say thanks for stuff that matters, to people that help us moving forward no matter what. Will you let us start right now? :)

First of all we are more than grateful to have our loyal users and chance visitors as your existence alone floats the boat named GOTD. Thanks for coming to our website daily, downloading our offers and sharing you feedback, in spite of the fact that we can be far from perfect from time to time. Secondly we are thankful to all the developers for not being afraid to be criticized by our experts – you are our heroes. Finally let us thank GOTD team members for keeping giveaways coming – we wish you knew how much it takes sometimes.

Have fun and remember to be grateful! ;)

Best regards,
GOTD team


  1. Totally agree GOTD Team,

    I am thankfull for all the work you guy and gals do for all of us.
    There are not many places where you find freebees that are tested and have a good chance to give feedback. Here the comments are rated, and daily names help us to understand when we do not know it ourselfs.

    Thanks to the developers, who gives us the chace to test their programs.
    Thanks to the vast group of testers, who gives the developers and other guests relevant feedbacks.
    Thanks for this Blog so we can express our thanks

    Have a great time all

  2. I thank you for your time and the opportunity to try to many softwares that I may not have heard of or not had the chance to use. I have also learned alot about free software alternatives that I did not know existed, some of which are actually better than the paid for versions. I appreciate GOTD and most of the responses from the community. Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!

  3. NICE writing! :) Thanks! And I hope you know that all of us appreciate you, GOTD team, more than it sometimes sounds in comments. :) You know that, right? :) Better! Cause we all do! You are now the ONLY site I check regularly, & have been my homepage for years now. I wouldn’t have many decent software aps if it weren’t for you, that’s a fact! So, thank you for all you do, & for the nice things you wrote above about everything, even though you’re so busy, & I thank the rest of the universe for everything else. :) Catch a hug, team! :) As long as this great site exists, you are each and every one a success! Happy Holidays!

  10. After seeing how people behaved on Black Friday, I’m very grateful for GOTD and the products we have the chance to use. Something I couldn’t do if I had to buy all of the products offered here. Thank you GOTD.

  11. I am one of many who are grateful for your services over the years. The software experience of regulars is greatly enriched through the downloads and discussions. Thank you for all you do, even if the unappreciative voices sometimes drown out the appreciative ones! :D

    I would suggest and request that new blog postings like above are reported more prominently on your homepage, however. I rarely think to look over in the top right corner since it doesn’t update very often, so putting the latest title near the button linking the current giveaway might work well.

    Best regards and happy holidays!

  12. Thank you, GOTD Team, for bringing us amazing and clean software every single day, and thank you, other users of this site, for the education you provide to those of us less computer-savvy. My computing experience has been made infinitely richer by my dropping in here first thing every morning. Hope this continues for a long time!

  21. Thanks to you all that keep this great concept going! :-) IMO one of the top 5 best software related sites on the web and a must to check out each day, wouldn´t want to miss out on something good. Some of your offerings are among the one i use most frequently on my computer, also cheers to the good folks keeping the discussion going on the forum with a special tip of the hat to software gurus Ashraf and Giovanni :-).

  25. I will and my thanks to the GOTD team and say that I am very greatful that I found this site. Free software is nice, but without the GOTD team and the other users making comments on the software, I wouldn’t have tried any “free” or “3rd party” software on the net. Through the GOTD offerings I have found so many wonderful software. Thank you all.

  27. Hello All. Just wanted to say thanks to all of you this holiday season. I loved this post and the beautiful way you put this simple message of thanksgiving.

    Blessings and Peace Everyone.

  28. I am thankful for what you guys do. You put all these programs together, I wouldn’t know where to start. Thank you.
    Have a very Happy Holiday season

  29. Thank you for all you guys do on GOTD, and also all the developers who’ve offered software over the last few years. Have a lovely xmas

  30. Thanks to everyone at GOTD for all the great software over the last year that I’ve been subscribed!! Have a Very Merry Christmas to ALL!!!

    Comment by Anthony Means — December 16th, 2013 at 5:38 am
  31. I’d agree with the positive comments above.
    it’s nice ot be able to see the range of, mostly indie, software around. Publishers I wouldn’t know existed. Sometimes even tyes of software that I didn’t know existed.
    In return I try to give balanced evaluations. Not critisisng the developers because it doesn’t give everything I want, but also not accepting software uncritically because I got it free. That’s not the idea. The point is to evaluate the s/w in terms of the retail price.
    Would we be happy with what it does if we’d paid that price?

    Comment by TerryB — December 19th, 2013 at 4:00 am
  32. Hi GOTD Team

    Very many thanks(as they say in Navy) for offering wonderful things to us no cost.

    May Force be with you!

    Comment by Avadhoot — December 19th, 2013 at 11:04 am
  33. Hello GotD-Team,

    thank you for annother year providing us with daily costfree programms
    Also thanks to all developers and companies who make this possible.

    Please translate, this fine written letter, and publish it on the german site. Because a lot of the german users, who complain nearly every day about the same stupid reasons have only a simple education and dont speak english and they never learnt the word grateful. I hope this helps them to think first a little bit before they write their next useless comment.
    I tried it friendly from time to time in my comments but the only results were offending comments from them.
    Therefore i use often your english site because the comments are much more efficient and usefull.

    Thank you again, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

  34. I wish to express my gratitude to the entire GOTD team, for all the hard work that they do, to bring all these great apps to our attention and availability. I also wish to thank the developers for their hard work and allowing us to have access to their products, and the reviewers that give intelligent reviews and other options available. I appreciate your hard work, time and expertise, in reviewing and informing of other options. I had been a computer programmer for over 35 years, now retired/disabled and place a lot of respect on your opinions. Thank you all, on all levels that make GOTD the sucess that it is.

  36. I want to say thank-you for all of the free apps you have given me! I would not be able to enjoy them without your help! Mainly because I could not afford them. I appreciate your efforts to make them available to so many of us and for all of your hard work! Thanks again!!!!

    Comment by Mary Delawder — December 25th, 2013 at 6:39 am
  37. I saw this topic, after I read someone whining and ranting over the Christmas Give Away animated wallpaper.

    This column should be required reading.

    Thank you Giveaway Of The Day staff.
    Thank you developers – for being willing to risk brutal & ignorant comments.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Years to all from Campbell River, BC, Canada.

  41. A little late, but I a grateful for what you offer to us.

    When I see freebies on the Net, I know they are bloated with things that I won’t want. THANK YOU for being a place to get things that are not full of stuff!


  42. I don’t think I could do the sentiments any more justice. Thank you all and bless you.
