Part 2: WordPress PlugIns to Streamline Your Blogging
In my January article I introduced you to three of my favorite WordPress plugins. In this issue I’m sharing three more plugins that I are also really helpful with my blog:
- Broken Link Checker – As your website/blog grows, so do the links you place to direct people to view another website, blog post, video, and more. However, what happens if that page is deleted or a site is moved to a different domain? Your reader will be directed to a dreaded “404 Not Found” error page. This plugin resolves the mystery to determine which of your links is no longer working so you can either remove or correct the link.
- Facebook Like Button – Facebook incorporated a unique feature with the new like button. When you click on the “Like” button on a blog post or article that has this feature enabled, you will automatically share the content with your Facebook friends:
- Tweetly Updater – Easily update Twitter with your new blog posts as they publish. You can also add hashtags for your updates, such as #FB (for Facebook) and #LI (for LinkedIn). If you have installed Selective Tweets on Facebook and have checked the box on your LinkedIn account for Twitter to update your LinkedIn when you add the hashtag #LI, then you will ping your Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn account when your blog post publishes without visiting any of these social media platforms.
