11 WordPress Plugins You Need

If you’re building a WordPress website, WordPress Plugins can transform your website easily without relying on a developer to do the work for you. Though there are many to choose from, here are 11 you should use. 

JetPack

Though many WordPress providers offer this plugin automatically, JetPack fulfills almost every need you may have with your website. JetPack allows you to build your website with built-in themes, helps you gather more organic traffic through social sharing, and additionally helps secure your website. If you’re hosting your own WordPress website, you’ll definitely need this plugin.

Yoast SEO

Yoast continues to be one of the most popular plugins for self-hosted websites. This plugin enables you to optimize your SEO, offers page analysis, allows for social integration, and even enables you to create sitemaps.

Google XML SItemaps

Though Yoast does enable you to create sitemaps, Google XML Sitemaps serves as a more optimized index for the search engines. This plugin makes it more simple for crawlers to search your website and has more sub sitemaps than Yoast.

Broken Link Checker

With Broken Link Checker, you can monitor every link on your website, and ensure none of them are broken. From links in your post pages, comments, blog, or even images, this plugin will notify you via email, and allow you to edit your links without going to the actual page itself directly from the plugin.

Beaver Builder

Beaver Builder serves as an easy to use drag and drop page builder for your website. Instead of having to use code, this website builder simplifies the process by providing content modules, different layouts, and photo/video backgrounds, in addition to responsive layouts.

WooCommerce

This plugin will help you monetize your website and start generating revenue through sales. Woo Commerce integrates easily to WordPress, and powers nearly 30% of all online stores. Unlike other platforms like Shopify and Big Cartel, you have complete control of your store.

Editorial Calendar

The Editorial Calendar plugin enables you to keep up with your content and be able to see just precisely when your posts are going out.

With this plugin, you can see your blog at a month’s glance, see when your content is scheduled to go out, and drag and drop posts to different days to reschedule them. If you’re blogging regularly, this is a must.

Code Snippets

PHP, a code that can be embedded into HTML, is essentially what powers your WordPress website. Considering this can get extensive and messy, Code Snippets will help you better manage certain snippets of code. Like plugins, snippets of code can be activated and deactivated, and this plugin will help you do just that.

Print, PDF, Email

The Print, PDF, Email plugin title says it all. Essentially, this plugin reads your site and allows you to download and preview your content as a PDF, and then, of course, print it. If you’re hands-on and like to edit your content by hand, this plugin can help.

Smush Image Compression & Optimization

Having a responsive website that loads quickly is important to continue generating more traffic, and having optimized images that still maintain quality but load quickly is important for this reason.

Smush Image Compression & Optimization includes helpful features like optimizing 50 images in one click, creating automation to optimize your content, size detection, all while preserving image quality.

WPForms

WPForms is an easy way to build contacts, collect payment information, create quizzes, surveys, and more from your website. Providing responsive and mobile friendly forms, this plugin is extremely customizable and eliminates the stress and bulk of creating great forms.

"I hear Americans get drugged."⠀

"Are there terrorists?"⠀
⠀
I've stayed in a lot of places that are considered "dangerous" and these are the comments/questions I get the most. ⠀
⠀
My response is always the same.⠀
⠀
Altering my appearance to "blend in" is silly and not all parts of Central & South America or the Middle East are dangerous. In Israel, you're going to see soldiers with machine guns in public places. Expect to see the same in most of Latin America outside of resorts. ⠀
⠀
If you're looking for trouble you're bound to find it, regardless of location. (And as a writer who covers oppressive/corrupt governments, I know I'm not always going to be the most welcome wherever I go.)⠀
⠀
But, I choose not to live in fear. ⠀

  • With #BlackFriday quickly approaching, be cautious about ads featuring "cheap flights" or "great vacation deals." If something seems too good to be true, it usually is. ⠀
⠀
If you're looking to book your 2020 travel soon, have an idea of standard ticket prices as you search. ⠀
⠀
For example, I’m not impressed by round trips to New York from Europe for $500+ when I know that I can probably find something cheaper from Chicago without having to use my flight points or spend the time to get from Indianapolis to NYC.⠀
⠀
The way I see it, round trips from the Midwest to major cities in Europe like London, Paris, or Zurich are reasonable if priced $400-$600. It’s an incredible deal if you can find a round trip like this for $400 or less.⠀
⠀
One ways to Europe from New York are reasonable for $200-$300 but are especially good deals if you can get them for $200 or less.⠀
⠀
And any flight from the Midwest or East Coast to Asia for $1,000 or less is always a great deal IF they are nonstop or have one short layover.⠀

  • I went with a bare face to TWO meetings this morning?! I’ve always struggled with my skin and finding a good dermatologist, skincare from @the_lassi_indpls, and @michianamicroblading have been instrumental in taking care of acne and scarring from my teenage years + thin and frail brows. Plus moisturizing. And drinking water. And washing my hands before I touch my face. And wearing sunscreen. #AsSheIs
  • One of the biggest reasons why Americans don’t travel abroad – other than not having a passport – is the cost of airfare. Rising taxes, hidden fees, and baggage add-ons don’t help, but if you can manage to travel only with a carryon and during the offseason, then it IS possible to travel frugally. ⠀

My roundtrip from Cincinnati to Iceland? $300⠀
Chicago to Paris? Close to $350⠀
One way from JFK to London? $290 ⠀
⠀
I don’t usually travel outside of the U.S. during Q4 (because it’s expensive) but I’ve got Colombia, Peru, Iceland again, and wherever we decide to go on our honeymoon on my list for 2020. I’ve written a list of the biggest ways I save money on plane tickets #ontheblog. ⠀
