     I’m a big fan of SEO by Yoast. For social sharing I prefer Socialize (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/socialize/) I like that it’s flexible – I can have a ton of buttons and an obnoxious bar that scrolls up and down along with the user, or I can have a simple box at the beginning/end of each post.

    Thanks for the preso, and good to meet you.

    • http://thomallen.com Thom Allen

      Thanks for replying and sharing your plugin ideas. Great to meet you tonight. Hope to see more of you.

    Also, I’ve written some, so, you know, there’s that. http://profiles.wordpress.org/jazzs3quence and https://github.com/jazzsequence

    Landing Sites is cool, though it hasn’t been updated in forever: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/landing-sites/

    I also really like TPC Memory Usage (which also hasn’t been updated): http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tpc-memory-usage/

    And PressTrends when I want to feel bad about not posting more content: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/presstrends 

    I’ve been using Cart66 + my Products plugin for e-commerce stuff:
