WordPress is one of the most popular blog software packages. It is a publishing platform which allows you easily maintain your blog and extend the functionality by using third-party plugins.


I believe the following WordPress plugins are the best:

  • Google Sitemap Generator – helps you automatically generate sitemaps to make the task of Google  indexing your blog much easier and productive.


External links:

  • wordpress.org – official WordPress site, where you can download the software and also find all the WordPress technical support you need on its forums
  • wordpress.com – WordPress-based blog hosting – hundreds of thousands of blogs are hosted there, and it's really simple to get your own blog started
  • WordPress Buttons – a collection of nice-looking buttons for all you WordPress fans to use
