By keeping yourself organized and productive, you could achieve your goals quicker and earn more bucks. Bloggers know the importance of being productive. They've got a little time for maintaining their blog.
WordPress is the most used Blogging platform today. It is famous because of it's flexibility, security and also the wide array of plugins to easily extend the functionality in one click. There are plenty of plugins that are meant for bloggers to boost their productivity. Being a serious blogger since around 3 years, I've used many plugins on WordPress. I love exploring plugins.
In this post, I'll introduce you some of the WordPress plugins that boost your productivity and enables you to blog faster.
This awesome plugin lets you paste the image directly to the WordPress post from your clipboard.
When you combine this plugin with Ditto – the best clipboard manager for Windows, you can save lots of time uploading your images.
With this plugin, for me, uploading of images is now as easy as copy and paste.
This plugin enhances the default internal link feature of WordPress. Whenever you select a text and click on the link button, it automatically searches for the posts, pages, categories, tags matching the selected anchor text. You can also add additional data sources if you are a developer. By this, internal link search also returns results from Wikipedia, and other sites you include.
This plugin is well updated and maintained. This plugin is a must have if you want to effectively interlink your posts.
This plugin helps you mention your previous posts, by simply typing the search query prefixed by the symbol '@'. I discovered this plugin recently. It eases the process of including the manual related posts within the article.
When you click on any post, the post title along with the link will be inserted.
It's just awesome.
If you are fond of drag and drop image upload feature on WordPress, this is a must have plugin.
This plugin adds the drag and drop functionality to the 'featured image' section of your post editor.
You just need to drag and drop your featured image, to upload it.
This is one of the simple and highly essential plugin developed by Brad Vincent.
It allows you to bookmark your favorite posts and pages. These bookmarks are added to the admin menu and widget in the dashboard for quick viewing and editing.
You just need to install and activate the plugin. There are no settings to configure.
This plugin helps you to quickly move posts from one category or tag to another.
It can also be used to quickly remove categories or tags from multiple posts and pages.
If you accidentally have messed up with categories and tags in your blog, this plugin comes as a time saver.
By default, WordPress allows shortcodes only to be executed inside the content. This is a super-simple plugin that enables the shortcode functionality in widgets.
You can include the shortcodes in sidebar widgets, without any worry.
This plugin hasn't been updated for over 3 years, as it is a very simple filter plugin.
This plugin is exactly opposite to the above plugin.
It enables you to insert widget at any part of your blog, with the help of shortcodes.
Example of shortcode is,
[widget id="text-1" title="0"]
The above shortcode inserts the first text widget inside the post. It is very helpful in including the opt-in forms, upgrades, and also social icons within the posts.
This plugin helps you share your old blog posts on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus and others.
It does this automatically, by randomly selecting your old posts and sharing it.
You can set the frequency of social shares, posts to exclude, the minimum time between the shares, and also exclude certain categories.
