WordPress Plugins

As Featured On EzineArticles One of the things that seperates WordPress from other blogging platforms is that it’s Open Source. There are many benefits that go along with this. The main one being the sheer amount of plugins that are available to save you time, help you make money and organize your online business. You can easily add functionality to your sites without programming experience and this makes the whole WordPress platform flexible.

I often get asked which plugins I use on my wordpress blogs and sites, so I thought I would put together a list of the main ones I use. I don’t use all of them on every site but here’s the best ones I’ve found:
