6 Essential Plugins for Food Blogs

Bjork

by Bjork on Sep 04, 2013 in Growing Your Food Blog

There are currently over 26,645 plugins available that bloggers can use to enhance their WordPress sites.

Whoa. That's a lot of plugins.

Enough to bring many people into a state that I call analysis paralysis. This is when someone constantly analyzes and researches but never makes a decision.

I've fallen victim to it many times.

If someone doesn't get stuck in analysis paralysis then they'll probably get stuck in customization craziness. This is the stage after you install the plugin and are presented with a settings or preferences page. Often times victims of customization craziness do Google searches and (sort of) read through tutorials, then make changes that have:

  1. No apparent effect on their site or
  2. Completely break their site

This usually results in:

  1. Complete frustration or
  2. Complete panic

Once again, I've been there.

So what's the cure for analysis paralysis and customization craziness? The cure is to methodically walk through the setup and customization process, which is exactly what we're going to do here at Food Blogger Pro as we start our plugins deep dive courses.

With the plugins deep dive courses we'll take a look at what we consider to be the six most important plugins for food bloggers. If I were to create a food blog today, these are the six plugins that I would immediately install and activate. In this blog post I'll preview the six plugins and discuss why they're important. If you're a member of Food Blogger Pro you can expect the first course to be available next week.
