One of the first things I did when I was setting up this site was look for plugins – these little nifty wordpress tools that could help make the user’s and blogger’s lives easier. See the smilies? the comments’ reply? The avatar? Well these are all thanks to the plugins I’ve used and I’d like to share them with you. As a matter of fact, I am actually using a plugin to show the plugins I’m using. I hope that these will help any fellow blogger who wishes to upgrade to wordpress. So enjoy downloading these guys!There are 30 plugins used: 30 active plugins and 0 inactive plugins.
