WordPress Plugins: The 24 I Use On My Blog

Leaving Work BehindAnyone who is familiar with my writing for WPMU will know that I am a bit of a plugin junkie. I can’t get enough of them. And since I spend rather a lot of time testing and reviewing plugins, I find it rather difficult to curb my addiction at times.

You may not know that as well as writing for the likes of WPMU and other sites, I have my own blog. Often, when I write up a review for a plugin, I first found it when looking for ways to achieve something with Leaving Work Behind.

Keeping the number of plugins I have running on my site to a manageable number is an ongoing battle. I regularly go through the list of what I have installed and try to make an objective decision as to whether or not I really need them all. Having just done this, I thought it would be a nice opportunity to share the plugins I have running on my blog with you.

Enjoy!
