Those who have followed me for a while know that I am a big fan of WordPress. One of my blogs uses the fully hosted version, but the other two I own are self-hosted.

 

While I enjoy blogging on a WordPress.com site because the basic features are awesome (and free), I still prefer paying to get more flexibility. Most of this flexibility comes in the form of plugins.

 

There are plugins for pretty much everything right now. Ivan Dimitrijevic talks about 23,000, and they have been downloaded at least 480 million times!

 

In his article, he introduces five that look really worth a try. I haven’t used any of them, but I’m really thinking of checking out uSquare.  The others are Royal Slider, Social Network Tabs, LiveChat, and Frontend Builder.
