WordPress is the most popular among newbie webs designers and bloggers. Most of the bloggers prefer WordPress as their blogging cms because it is simple to install compared to other cms’s, easy in customization and easy to learn.
In early phase of a blogger, most of the bloggers face a common problem of making their site unique. For coping up with this problem they install every plugin they see is fancy or have lots of features.

- If plugins have widgets, they occupy blank space in a page which upon overdoing can make site clutter.
- Unnecessary plugins are of no use to visitor so they will likely to bounce off.
So below are some of the plugins which are most useful for an blogger:
Social login:Social login is very much beneficial for a blogging site. Users need not to fill up registration form and additionally remember password. Social login helps signing-in and sign-up using social media profile of any social network such as Facebook, Twitter etc.
This saves time for users and makes user flow smooth throughout the website.
Users needs to approve once while signing up using a social login and that’s it. Next time if they visit they just need to click on social network and get in. If user has signed out the social network, it will be asked to sign-in and then will continue to login to that social network and the site.

Simply click on social sharing button of social network on which one wants to share and that’s it, it will be shared along with permission to edit title and permission to share.
Do implement these plugins as they are most important asset for an WordPress based blogging website.
