Jetpack= Is a beast of a plugin. It has so many features. Some of my favorites are Social sharing meaning you can contact your twitter account to your site and whenever you blog it goes straight to there. Another feature is the spell check and free brute force attack protection. Worth looking into.Oh, its free by the way!
Simple Social Icons= Update your share buttons. No more of those silly looking color share buttons. Its all about being modern now !! It’s also free !!
Simple Download Monitor= Want to see how many people are downloading that new ebook you made or PDF? this plugin will help. It’s easy to set up.
Akismet Anti-Spam This is a MUST have in my book. This plugin will make deleting spam easier to do that for you. It’s free!
Genesis eNews Extended- If your using a theme by the Studiopress and you want a newsletter this plugin is a must. It helps you add a newsletter to your theme.
