Top 10: Best Plugins for WordPress (From AmberlyMauszycki.com)

Amberly Mauszycki recommends these 10 WordPress Plugins. Her advice:

If you have an upgraded WordPress.org site, then you’ll want some plugins! Have you ever wondered which ones are the best to use? Well, I have some great plugin suggestions for you!

Remember to always look for the top rated plugins with a minimum of 3 stars, so you don’t have to worry about the plugin not working properly.

Of course, some of these may seem technical at first, but just play around with the settings and familiarize yourself with them! You don’t want to have 100′s of plugins, but just the best ones to make your blog look polished!
