All the WordPress Plugins I Love Using

This is my current list of plugins that I use and like using in WordPress.



  • Jetpack by I use this for the stats, mostly.
  • Statpress: I also use this one for stats, gives another angle to what’s happening on your site.




  • Bad Behaviour: Denys automated spambots from accessing your website
  • Hotlink Protection: Stops people from directly linking to your images or “hotlinking”
  • Growmap Anti Spambot: Adds a simple checkbox “Click here to prove you are not a spammer” for human commenters
  • WP-DB Manager: Super easy way to backup your blog


  • All in one SEO Pack: I don’t really get SEO and how to maximize anything (too lazy to learn) but this makes it easier I think.
  • Google XML Sitemaps: Creates an automatic sitemap for you so you don’t have to do it. Then you just submit it to search engines.
  • Quick Page Redirect: I moved from one blog URL to another, I had to redirect all of my old posts to this one for Google Juice



  • Quick Cache: Makes your posts and pages load quicker
  • Revision Control: I limit all my revisions to no more than 2 so it stops taking up unnecessary space.
  • WP Smush.It: Reduces the size of the images you upload to your site for optimized loading.
  • WP Widget Cache: Caches your widgets so that they don’t keep re-loading each time for visitors


  • @Reply: Gives Twitter-like replies when a commenter (or I!) reply to a comment — this plugin is old but it still works
  • Ajax Edit Comments: Allows readers to edit their comments within a specified time frame (e.g. 20 minutes)
  • Add New Default Avatar: Instead of those ugly commenter icons on WordPress, you can choose cute pictures instead
  • Akismet: For spam, nothing beats this one!
  • Subscribe to Comments: Lets readers subscribe to comments on a page so that they don’t have to keep checking back


  • WP-Touch: Instant mobile interface for your readers on smartphones

Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.
