I admit it. I’m a list addict. I love lists of things people have compiled. I’m sure I’m not alone. There are tons of lists of things on the web. Bloggers love to make lists and they draw lots of traffic. Lists are a quick way of learning a bunch of things quickly about a subject or getting links to resources you hadn’t known about before. As a collector of lists, I thought why not make a list of lists! What could be more meta? So, here is a list of lists I’ve come across in the last few days for WordPress. As Heraldo points out, many local bloggers have seen the light and have moved from Blogger to WordPress. I’d like to think I’ve led the way on that, having been a WordPress user from the beginning of this blog. But probably not. I’m sure they have all found there own way without my influence.
I will be doing othere Lists of Lists in the days ahead.
Caveat: I have not tried all this stuff, so I can’t vouch for it.
These lists, are mostly from Mashable (one of my favorite blogs for Web 2.0 news):
30+ Ajax Powered WordPress Plugins
50+ Multimedia Plugins for WordPress
50+ Admin Tools for WordPress
30+ Plugins for WordPress Comments
30+ WordPress Plugins for getting more blog readaers
83 Beautiful WordPress Themes You Probably Haven’t Seen
A Big List of WordPress Plugins and Tutorials (lots of good stuff in the comments, too)
If you’re a WordPress fan and have your own favorite lists of resources, feel free to share them!
Excellent! I have used wordpress out of the box in the past, but I want to start playing with it again. I have seen people do some amazing things with it, and I really want to improve the one I have at work.
These lists look like they are going to rock.
I can’t answer your question because your blog is hosted at WordPress. I don’t know if there is a difference between that and hosting your own blog, but I assume there must be. If you have your own site the admin area has a plugin tab. You upload the plugin of your choice to the correct directory, then you activatee the plugin. Beyond that, depending on the specific plugin theer may be other configuration that needs to be done.
How do you enable these plugin’s? I don’t see a plugin tab in wordpress.
I knew there had to be more WordPress themes somewhere. Thanks for the link.
And you’re right that lists pull in a lot of traffic. My Top 12 Reasons to Love Humboldt County resulted in one of the most enjoyable comment threads I’ve seen on my blog.
