If you self host your WordPress blog, you know that it is important to have some good plugins. Having good plugins can make running your blog so much easier. I have put together a list of some of my favorite WordPress plugins that I use to help run Cali Darling or that I just love.
Jetpack by WordPress.com – Visit Plugin Page
I have a couple of blogs and every blog I run, the first thing I install is Jetpack. Jetpack has so many features within the plugin. Some of my favorite features are: contact form, sharing, and site stats. If you are new to WordPress (or even a seasoned veteran), having Jetpack is an essential tool to have!
CommentLuv – Visit Plugin Page
I like CommentLuv because it rewards readers who comment on your blog posts with a link to their latest blog post. It’s also nice to have so when you return love on comments, you can just directly see what their latest blog post is!
Revive Old Post – Visit Plugin Page
Staying active on social media is important and by using revive old post, not only are you staying active on social media, but you are also promoting your old posts. This app goes through your old posts and tweets a link to a previous post based on the time interval you specify.
WordPress Editorial Calendar – Visit Plugin Page
This calendar is good to have because you can see your posts in a calendar format. It’s helpful because it’ll show you when you posted and when you have posts scheduled. I like using this calendar because I can see how many days are between my posts. I try to post Mondays and Thursdays, but sometimes I post Tuesdays and Fridays so being able to see that is helpful!
So those are my current favorite WordPress plugins. I hope to do more blogging and WordPress related posts in the future. Let me know what you would like to see in the comments!
