I’ve been taking this opportunity to add some functionality to the blog, especially since adding plug-ins is so easy with WordPress. So far I’ve installed FeedBurner FeedSmith, SimpleTwitter, Slashdigglicious and WordPress.com Stats. I’ve also installed my friend Dan Kuykendall’s plug-in podPress, which was one of the things that originally got me thinking about switching to WordPress.
The site will obviously be undergoing additional changes over the next couple of days as I experiment with WordPress some. Are there any absolute ‘must have’ plug-ins I should install? Are there any I should absolutely stay away from? I have to imagine someone will make a malicious plug-in for WP some day, though I haven’t heard of one yet.
The weather report says its going to be raining all weekend here in Northern California, my wife’s recovering from minor eye surgery (PRK touch up) and the kids have a friend coming over this afternoon. Sounds like a good time to sit at the computer and play with the blog configuration.
