WordPress Plugins

Plugins are add on to your WordPress platforms that allow you to take your blogging game to the next level. There are thousands of plugins and to be honest you can go plug in crazy and download a bunch that you won’t need and will eventually slow down your blog.

Examples of plugins or widgets you will need are social media widgets and plugins for email opt-ins.


Here is my suggestion for the best email opt-in to start with and its free for up to 1000 subscribers. I have a whole long lengthy post about Mailerlite, how to set it up and do your automations. Oh, automations are those post you get every day/week/month from bloggers when they do their email series, challenges and courses. SO no we do not write you emails every single day.

Remember you need to have a pop up on your blog an email “bait” so to speak. Giveaways something that is core to your blog for the first one, as you go on you can give away product based on post content or category on your blog.

Note: Put email opt ins at the side bar, bottom of each post and create a post to talk explain your entire give away
