WordPress plugins are all of the little add-ons that take the basic bones of WordPress and give your readers the functionality and feel of a fancy, professionally-designed site.

Today’s featured blogger has put together a list of must-have plugins to get your blog up and running.

Must-Have WordPress Plugins

Simply put, WordPress plugins are tools to extend the functionality of WordPress. There may be features that you’d like for your blog that don’t come with the basic version of WordPress. Some examples are:

  • An email service provider opt-in form on your sidebar
  • A ‘Pin it’ icon appear when people hover over your images
  • A contact form on your ‘contact me’ page
