    Andrew, I’m a WordPress amateur, but I try to be very careful to only use plugins that are important. I just recently started using Share and Follow, which has really helped me with the social media buttons and encouraging people to subscribe and follow me on Twitter.

    I also delete plugins I no longer use.

    Thanks for the excellent vid with excellent advice.

    I’m happy to report that I’m a blogmiser. 🙂 I try NOT to use them. I do have some I swear by and love, but I check them regularly and dump them if they aren’t useful. I also try to code some functionality myself (like my social networking bar above each post).

    Your post made me feel good!

    But deleting “Hello Dolly” over and over makes me NUTTY!

      Perhaps…a plugmiser or plugomiser is a better name?

      I also do some coding to replace certain plugins.

      And yes…Hello Dolly – why o why is that in every release of WordPress!

    thanks andrew, nice video. I, myself, avoid using plugins excessively in order to keep my blog’s performance high.
