This week’s WordPress Podcast with Charles Stricklin and Jonathan Bailey is asking listeners to email them their top 10 favorite, can’t-live-without WordPress Plugins.
WordPress Plugins are invaluable tools and extensions that help you do more with your WordPress blog. There are a lot I couldn’t live without, but that list changes over time as Plugins come and go, evolve and improve.
Plugins help you add video and multimedia easier to your blog. They help you list most recent posts, most recent comments, translate your post content, offer polls and surveys, add design and template functions, add contact forms and mailing lists, and improve how WordPress works in general. Did you know that there are three Plugins that will help you ensure you spell WordPress right, with the “P” capitalized, just in case you forget in your blog posts?
Right now, Weblog Tools Collection’s annual WordPress Plugin Competition is on and every year, when I think there are no new ideas for WordPress Plugins, I’m stunned at the fantastic Plugins people come up with, Plugins that soon become invaluable on our blogs. The imagination and possibilities of WordPress Plugins astounds me constantly. I worship the ground Plugin authors float over as they find a problem or challenge in WordPress and come up with a creative solution.
I feature WordPress Plugins every Wednesday on the Blog Herald as part of my weekly WordPress Wednesday News reports, helping you find unusual and interesting Plugins to help you blog better.
Last year, I spent a few months researching what WordPress users have published as their favorite WordPress Plugins, and then featured the Plugins on the top of those lists in What Are Your Favorite WordPress Plugins as part of a month honoring WordPress Plugins on this blog. For the next month, I wrote a blog post a day, sometimes two, about all the different types of WordPress Plugins I’d found, and still I only showcased the tip of the ice berg.
Why not help highlight your favorite WordPress Plugins by emailing Charles and Jonathan of the WordPress Podcast at firstname.lastname@example.org and help them put together a list of users’ favorite WordPress Plugins.
