I get a lot of e-mails asking me about the plugins I use here. After trying many WordPress plugins, I have settled on a handful that I rely on.
I’d recommend these to any blogger, especially the beginners out there. If you start with these, it will help get more traffic, more comments, more retweets, and build your community.
Remember, you don’t want to have too many plugins running because it will slow down your site. So be picky about what you use.

This is the tweet box you see at the end of every post. If you want more people to share you post, you have to make it so simple for them. Don’t make them search for the retweet button. Show them how easy it is.
You can set up the wording of the tweet to whatever you want. Your readers can edit it as well before tweeting it.
It wasn’t easy to setup the box at first, but I had it setup up in minutes when I found a video made by my friend Adrienne Smith.
This is my most asked about plugin. Install it on your blog today and get more retweets.
