Some of those plugins are really great!

I use probably about 7 of these plugins on a regular basis.
I also found the business directory for wodpress. (today actually) but every time I try and install it, I get some weird error. So I’m leaving that one out for now.

Great collection you have here. Well done.

Just came across your post. I found it informative for me and I’m sure many others. I did also have small trouble subscribing to the blog but figured it out; I’m still a 2-finger typist :) . Thank you and keep your blogging spirit going strong.

A nice list with some great info on useful blooging tools. Certainly helped in answering some of the questions I had about which tools to look for.

Nice Job.
