A world of Plugins to choose from

Starting a new blog or web site from scratch is like creating a character in Dungeons and Dragons with a very generous dungeon master. I find myself wanting to soup up my site without even really understanding what all of the plugins do. Google Analytics – of course! All-in-one-SEO-Pack, heck yes! Embedded Video, you betcha. Of course I’m adding all of these onto a theme I’ve only been using for about 30 minutes so I don’t even know what will crash what but I’m not going to create a Gannt chart or Microsoft Project Plan to map out the testing path and dependencies. I will however back up the site on a frequent basis because with proper backups any site can be recovered quite quickly.

I’ll keep creating content just so I can get a feel for what the newest version of WP can do. I’ve been making do in my personal blog with an older version of word press which definitely looks long in the tooth when compared to all of the bells and whistles available now.  For example there is a word count feature just below the edit draft window. I never knew I wanted or needed this feature – now it’s a must have….

The newest spam filter looks really cool, if you there are any plug-ins that you can’t live without. Let me know and I’ll check them out and see if I can’t work them into the site.  For the record the word count in this entry is 251. -t
