I think it’s fair to say I love WordPress. If you are looking to host your own blog, get thee to wordpress.org and download the latest version. It’s free, and it’s fabulous.
One of my favorite aspects of WordPress is the ability to extend its functionality through plugins. This blog currently relies on a large number of amazing plugins written by a large variety of authors (and some modified by yours truly). I’d like to take the opportunity to tell you what they are, and how to get them for yourself, if you are so inclined.
(The descriptions of each plugin are written in the respective authors’ own words)
