This is the last post in my series about how to start your own blog. We’ve talked about free blogs vs. blogs where you own your domain name, how to set up both a free and self-hosted blog, and how to post pages and posts.
Today, we’ll talk about plugins. Plugins are pieces of code that add more features to your blog and also help it run more smoothly. There are tons available; WordPress’ own site alone lists 8,079 and there are many more out there.
The plugins I use (and highly recommend) are:
All in One SEO
Peter’s Random Anti-Spam
WordPress Database Backup
