  1. Thanks the great information on favorite WordPress plugins. I’ll definitely check out WP Title 2 and WordPress Database Backup. Also interested in HeadSpace2 which you guys mentioned at the Meetup this week. Great info!

    Glad to hear you learned about some useful plugins at the meetup. WP Title 2 is a really useful one. It’s one of the first plugins I install on every site I build. WP-DB-Backup is also pretty important. There are others with more features, but that one is really simple to set up and it’s dependable. Set it and forget it. HeadSpace2 is a good plugin. I prefer to use All In One SEO Pack because it’s simpler to configure, which is important when I’m putting it on clients’ sites. HeadSpace 2 has more options however.
