If you are a blogger who owns your own website, there is a good chance you are using WordPress to power it. So why not use some of these cool plugins to help boost your sites quality. Plugins are among the easiest way to quickly improve your sites appeal, and user interaction.
For those of you who may be new to WordPress and it’s add-ons here is a little info. If you are a WordPress Pro you can skip this paragraph. [skip it] OK for those of you still with me, WordPress is a CMS (content management system) geared towards the blogging community. Programmers and developers who are either generous, or offer a premium version of a widget, create plugins that allow the administrators of a WordPress site to add and subtract functionality. Now this is nothing new, I remember back in 2000 when the only free CMS out was PHP-Nuke. PHP-Nuke wasn’t a very good platform, and it got hacked often, but it did allow you to add modules and blocks. WordPress is like PHP-Nuke in this sense, but it is a lot sturdier, and a lot more user friendly. To find wordpress plugins/widgets you need to log into your WordPress admin area usually http://yourwebsite.com/wp-admin/ Once you are logged in click on Plugins then Add New then either search for a new plugin or upload a zipped one.
