My Seven Favorite WordPress Plugins for Bloggers

I've received emails asking me about how I've done a few things with my blog

I've received emails asking me about how I've done a few things with my blog, so I wanted to share some of the WordPress.Org PlugIns that I use and have enjoyed. The following are my top 7 plugins that I'm currently using on my blog / website:

1) All in One SEO Pack - this one has to be one of my all-time favorites. It works within the pages and posts. You are able to assign a title tag, 160 characters for a description for the search engines, and keywords thus allowing you to optimize your search engine optimization for search engines.

2) DropCap First Character - I've had many requests wanting to know how I am getting the big, magazine style first letter in all my blog posts. Here's my secret plug-in that automatically does it for me!

3) No Self Pings - I often write blog posts where I will reference and hyperlink another blog post that causes a self pingback. This little plugin eliminates self pings, so you aren't getting emailed about self pings.

4) Sexy Bookmarks - lots of questions on where I got my sleek social bookmarking tool at the bottom of my posts. Sexy Bookmarks gets the credit--super easy to install and use!

5) Copyright Pro - try to highlight any of the text on my website, Career Design Coach. Now try to right click on a picture to copy it. Can't do it, right? Here's the plugin that will achieve the same results on your blog.

6) Tweetly Updater - Automatically shortens your URL to your blog post using bit.ly URL shortener and then pings your Twitter account to update your status letting your followers know you've posted a new blog (includes the link back to your blog post).

7) Photo Dropper - lets you search on keywords for Creative Commons licensed photos - images that are licensed for shared use. You can drop them into your post with one click and gives photo credit where credit is due.
