Here are some of the WordPress plugins that I have installed on my site.
For technical and SEO reasons that are beyond my ability to explain, it is important for you to have a recipe plugin if you post recipes. It helps both Google and Pinterest deliver your post to their users. The WP Tasty plugin is created and supported by the folks at Food Blogger Pro. I was an early adopter and couldn't be happier.
The Tasty Links plugin is NOT just for food bloggers. How do I describe this? This is a plugin where you assign a link to a certain word or phrase. Every time that word or phrase appears on your blog in a post, Tasty Links will automatically turn it into the link that you assigned to it.
Social Warfare Pro is a useful social media plugin for WordPress. With it, you can specify which image you want people to Pin on Pinterest and share on other social channels. You can also customize the description that gets shared and use it to add attractive and customizable social sharing buttons on your posts and pages.
