I'm just putting together my Wordpress blog, which is the 2.7 version, and I would appreciate some ideas of the essential Plugins/Widgets to use that you find indispensable to the success of your blogs?
I have already installed and activated several that I have listed below, are they ok and what else do you recommend or would you delete any that I already have?
Regarding the "appearance themes widgets", is it worth just adding them all or just certain ones?
I have also added some Adsense to my pages.
