Over the past few weeks, I have been trying to compose a definitive list of essential plugins every WordPress blogger should use. I’ve spent countless hours searching the web for the best WordPress plugins for my blog because, I am in the midst of upgrading my blog by adding new plugins to it. Why? Because plugins make your life easier – you can add new features, without having to spend umpteen hours on coding. Also, if you compare WordPress with other blogging software out there, you will find that since WordPress is an open source initiative, there are tons of free plugins on the web. So, if you arenâ€™t very good at coding, or good with PHP in particular, then the WordPress community has come to the rescue, with a lot of free plugins.
