A guest post by my colleague, Sally Yolanda.
Why WordPress plugins are so popular
WordPress is a dream platform for many bloggers, and one of the major reasons for this is its excellent collection of plug-ins. Many of them are outstanding.
They can be used in many ways to power up the platform and tailor additional functionality. Not only that, they are easily available, quite cheap, easy to install and involve fewer maintenance issues.
If you look carefully, you may come across plugins that are truly outstanding functionally but are hidden away from the limelight due to other more traditional ones.
In fact, you can filter and screen your existing plugins so that your website is running with the more useful and necessary plugins; rather than getting bogged down under the weight of useless favorite plugins.
