5 helpful Plugins that you need as a blogger!


Sumo is great for sharing content and list building. You can design your own pop up EXACTLY how you want it. From positioning to timing to design! Love that.

It also comes in with an automatic floating share buttons. That’s really great for wanting to share your content. I love that Sumo basically does everything for you and you don’t have to program it very much to do what it’s meant to do!

Give a try! 

2. WP Super Cache

Site speed is a huge deal. Especially when you’ve got a lot going on.

And to know all the technical stuff so early in the game can be really confusing.

And de-motivating.

Thankfully, there’s a plugin (well a few) to help you out!

WP Super Cache helps you cache your data automatically. So your site can be faster without having to sort through the code.

Try it now!

3. WP Smush

WP Smush is literally to “Reduce image file sizes, improve performance and boost your SEO using the free” (That’s their plugin description).

It will also help with site speed (without having to learn the technical stuff).
Just go to the settings and program it to Smush your files!

Voila! Faster site

4. Yoast SEO

Any great blogger will tell you that you NEED YOAST SEO!

It’s a plugin that analyzes your writing content for readability.

And it also helps you with SEO rankings. Tells you what you need to work on.

Keyword density, internal links, external links, meta description, all the things you might forget while you’re in the middle of writing a killer article.

Yoast SEO has come to save the day!

It’s also VERY helpful when it comes to verifying your site on Google. And Getting Rich Pins on Pinterest!

You’re Welcome!


5. WP Notification Bars

This is another great plugin to get more leads (subscribes) hooked up to your site.

When you have a notification bar at the top of your page, people will see it and be reminded to sign up for your awesome stuff!

You can try out different colors for your theme and even link externally if you want to (let’s say… to a specific landing page).

Try it out and see what happens to your subscribers!
