I’ve been lucky to work with a wide range of amazing, passionate business owners. We’ve worked closely to design and build their website in a way that represents and shows off their business in unique ways. And during these phases of design and growth, I’ve come across some really cool WordPress plugins.
WordPress, on its own, is a great platform for blogging and designing a website. But what makes WordPress a truly amazing piece of software is its plugin system. The WordPress plugin directory currently lists 24,023 plugins. That means if you want to do something with your WordPress website, it’s pretty likely there’s a plugin for your need. What is a WordPress plugin? It’s a software component that gives you added functionality or features to an already existing WordPress site. Typically, WordPress plugins are easy to install and implement with little or no programming experience needed.
Among those 24,023 plugins are typical WordPress plugins that most websites and blogs should make use of, like an SEO plugin, an anti-spam plugin, an analytics plugin, and a backup plugin. But there are some really cool plugins out there that can make blogging and connecting with clients easier and more unique.
