What can a WordPress plugin do for your website? Think in terms of the lowly potato. If your website was a baked potato, it would be rather bland tasting. Yet it would serve its purpose – to some degree at least. Add a few “features” (salt, pepper, and butter) and your potato (and website) begins to take on an entirely new look. It shows some promise.

Carefully select several plugins (cheese, sour cream, bacon bits) and you have a feast. A delicious baked potato or a totally awesome website – you’d like to share with the world.
