Join Kathi as she talks all things tech with fab designer Angela Bouma of A. Bouma Writing and Design, and tech genius Roger Lipp of Communicator Academy, as they break down all the plugins you will need for your site.

Do you feel overwhelmed by the number of plugins you “should” have for your blog? (And like Kathi, aren’t really sure what they do anyway?) Plus – if you have too many plugins it slows down your site and that is actually a HUGE problem. What’s a blogger to do?

In this info-packed podcast, let Angela and Roger show you:
• what plugin you actually need (and why)
• how to make your blog behave the way that you want
• stop feeling shame when all the other bloggers are talking plugins and you don’t understand what the heck they are talking about

I’m thrilled to have two of the smartest people I know (who also are two of my favorite people) here to explain it all to us.

Resources mentioned:

– W3 Total Cache (Improves site performance)
– Yoast SEO (helps with SEO)
– WooCommerce (adds ecommerce to your site)
– Akismet (anti-spam)
– Google Analytics for WordPress by Monster Insights (adds detailed analytics)
– Bloom (lead capture integration)
– jetpack (a large toolbox of helpful features for wordpress)
