Welcome to Part 3.  In Part 2 I outlined why you want to use the WordPress Platform to create and build your blog – on your own website.  Other platforms do not have the same options and capabilities as a wordpress blog on your own website.  From this Part onwwards, all features and benefits pertain to you have a wordpress blog on your own website.

What Key Features Must I Have On My Blog? 

-       Blog Key Features continued

Following is an essential element of making your blog function effectively and efficiently – creating content and connection with your marketplace.  Today we will cover the blog key feature known as Plug-Ins.

  • Plug-ins (Installed,  Configured and Activated) enhance and ‘empower’ your basic wordpress blog shell.

Plugins can extend WordPress to do almost anything you can imagine. In the directory you can find, download, rate, and comment on all the best plugins the WordPress community has to offer.  For instance, the ”Share” buttons on this blog post is a plugin.  It was installed, configured and activated on the basic wordpress blog that this site started out as.  

Watch this video to see HOW to add a plugin to your wordpress blog (note I am installing a plugin listed below that we recommend you have on your blog if you wish to maximize it’s power – effective, efficient and connecting with your marketplace.

Here are some basic plugins that are essential to have on a wordpress blog on your own website. 

PLEASE NOTE: Using plug ins is a 3 step process:  1) Installation 2) Activation 3) Configuration.   There are five plug-ins in the following list that are not free.  There is a very good reason you want to pay for these.  They are plug-ins that distinguish your site from others because they include powerful attributes you will not get from the ones that are free.

Key WordPress plug-ins to include and use on your blog, A-K are:

Akismet Protects your blog from comment and trackback spam.  All spam is placed in a spam folder for your preview and either approve or remove.  Some people use alternatives but testing to the time of publishing suggests the alternatives produce problems you will not want to contend with – largely because you will not know obviously of the problems the alternatives create.

    Hi Jennie,

    great plugin list.

    I like the way you did present it in a table. Did you use the TinyMCE Advanced plugin for the table?

    One thing I noticed was when I clicked on a link it opened in the same window. Just as well I had the Networked blogs still open to find my way back.

    Great to see you having commentluv!

    Thank you so much for the very informative post.
