  1. Cool list but would be even better to get your recommendation as to which ones are the most useful and supported too.

    Lots of information and lists like this are great but it still leaves the question “Which one should I use?” Sure that depends on what I need it to do but surely you have used some of these?

  2. Thanks so much for this tool list. I just installed two of them #30 and #31 — so cool. Still learning and this was so helpful for me. Will def read up on some of the others.

  3. Hey Raj, thank you for putting this EXTREME list man! I like it; you know most twitter plugins do posting on twitter or shows a widget on wordpress sidebar. Thanks to feedburner, we can post new articles on twitter without a plugin and then the twitter widget can be used in the sidebar, so no plugin needed so far. I like the new plugin “tweet and like” that puts twitter and facebook button next to your posts.
