22 Plugins that I put on every blog

22 Plugins that I put on every blog post

I love WordPress because of the plugins.

There is a wealth of plugin on WordPress that you can use to make you blog or website sing.

Sometimes, I only use certain plugins on certain blogs or test various versions on different blogs to see which one I like better.

But, there are some plugins that I have on every single blog that I own.

My Favorite Theme:

Atahualpa: Although not a plugin, it is my theme of choice. It is a flexible theme that you can make do almost anything. Yep, even with my admittedly limited skills,

My Blogging Life May 21, 2016

Hi, all…

I took the morning off so I am getting a late start on my blogging day.

I didn’t take the morning off for any particular reason but that I wanted to.

Being able to do that is one of the reasons that I desire a full-time passive blogging income from home.

I was going to say a self-employed income but some self-employed people don’t have that flexibility.

And I went back and added in the words passive blogging income because some people that work from home don’t have a flexible schedule and that includes many bloggers.

Yet,

My Blogging Life: Thank God Its Friday

TGIF, people. TGIF!!!

I have already been so busy this morning, both with personal stuff and with blogging.

Yeah, I know that you are only hear to read about the blogging stuff…

I know, I know…

Hm. Maybe I should do one of these on my lifestyle blog.

Think it will fly?

Anywho, on to my blogging day thus far.

7:00 a.m.

Got an early start due to my daughter needing a ride to school because she had an awkward project diorama (thank God for spell-check. I was all wrong on the spelling of that one) to carry, so

My Blogging Day 5.19.16

Now that I’ve started writing these blogging life posts, I actually feel guilty when I skip a day…or two…or three.

Some days I skip because I didn’t do much on the blogging front.

Others, I skip because I was just too lazy to write ’em.

Yesterday was a semi-combination of both.

I didn’t really do to much on the blogging front and I really didn’t feel like writing about what I was not really doing.

Make sense?

No.

That’s ok.

I am going to tell you what I did yesterday here and you can be the judge.

Besides the

My Blogging Life 5.11.16 thru 5.15.16

I know, I know…based on the frequency lack of posts of my daily blogging life, you would think that I have done absolutely nothing over the last 5 days.

You would (partially) right.

On Wednesday, I drove to pick up my middle kid from his college which is about 45 minutes to an hour away so that was about 3 hours out of my day gone bye-bye.

So, I just finished up my Facebook blogging group work and called it a day.

Why?

Because the very next day, I drove to pick up my oldest from college which is

App of the Month: Click To Tweet by Cheeky Apps Review

Sometimes I write such brilliance that I just know that my readers are going to want to share it.

I just know my readers are going to want to share my brilliance so I installed a click-to-tweet plugin on @amablogger. Click to Tweet

I like to make it as easy as possible for them to do so on their preferred social media.

On way to make it easy is to install a Click To Tweet plugin.

A click to tweet plugin puts a simple box on your post that the reader clicks and, well, tweets.

The great

My blogging day: book blog

Good morning, readers and bloggers!

I am actually on time this morning.

My schedule is built for my preferences to get all of the work that I need to do done.

I specifically do the tasks that I have previously been neglecting first.

I know from experience that I will stay up late to complete a post but not so much with the social activities.

8:00 a.m.

I am up and off to a good start this morning. I have already checked my Adsense for yesterday ($0.65) and my statcounter (my niche blog hit 114 and my demographic blog
