Do you use wordpress?  

When I build websites for churches I always make sure I build it on wordpress.  If you would like to set up a website, make sure to check out my post, “create a website in 10 simple steps.

Once you get a website up and running you realize that there are a lot of plugins and ways to tweak your theme.  Here are a few of my go to plugins when I set up a site.  Enjoy!

My top wordpress plugins: 

1. Disqus Comment System  Having a great comment system will keep people at your website.  I personally hate going to websites only to find they are using the default comment system.  I posted awhile ago on setting up a commenting system.  You can read about it here, Developing a Social Media Strategy: Comments.    Get the plugin here.

2. Shareaholic.  I love having a call to action button at the bottom of each post.  A place where you could share it on facebook, or twitter, or delicious.  Sexybookmarks is a great plugin.  Get it here.

3.  Simple tags.  If you want to set up tags for each most, this plugin will show the density of each tag.  I really enjoy this plugin.   Get it here.

4.  TGN embed everything.  This is one of the coolest plugins I came across this past year.  You can literally embed anything.  Sometimes it can be difficult to embed something with wordpress, but this is no longer the case.  Get this plugin here.

5.  Wordpress SEO.  This plugin is powerful.  Be careful!  If you want to see a keyword density of a post, this plugin will do that.  Make sure to install this plugin!  Get it here.
