    I’ve recently added a new wordpress plugin to my blogs … called “AmazonFeed“. You need to be an affiliate of Amazon, and get the Amazon API code and the Amazon Secret Access Key from Amazon Web Services .. plus your server requires the module “MCRYPT” which allows AmazonFeed to encrypt communication with Amazon as per Amazon regulations.

    Check out the bottom of any post!

    Anaglyph-meI’ve decided to add TweetMeme’s “Retweet Button” to all my sites. I am a fan of twitter, and although I have added the Wp-To-Twitter wordpress plugin which, included with other social media buttons appears at the bottom of each of my posts, I think this is complimentary. I remember looking at this plugin early on, and didn’t want anything to do with it because I never saw the RT’s .. it was all going to @tweetmeme, but they changed that. Also, I was receiving a conflicting cron error message with my other twitter plugins (tweet this and wp-to-twitter) so I assumed having more than one twitter plugin will always conflict. This one doesn’t conflict!

    The tweetmeme button shows the number of retweets of the post, so I can see how many people LUV the post πŸ˜€ .. plus I have configured it to mention @PetLvr (me!) so I know our posts have been retweeted. It’s easy to install – just like all wordpress plugins .. go into your dashboard, click Plugins, then click Add New .. and search for “Tweetmeme” .. and install, then activate. Simple πŸ˜€

    134/365 - I Was Lost In The Lakes And The Shapes That Your Body MakesOkay .. maybe “sexy” is a little overdoing it – but, I’ve been blogging since May 2005 and have many blogs and I like to think that I have some experience in selecting the right wordpress plugins for my blogs. Plugins are like the backbbone of your blog, and just like your theme .. determines the functionality and look of your blog. I thought I would share all of the major plugins that I am using around my network of sites.

    Here’s how I keep track of all my plugins .. On my local hard drive, I have a folder something like this:
    c:\2009-Latest-Wordpress

    I am currently in the process of rearranging the categories as there are just too many of them!

    When I first started this blog, the idea was that each post related to a specific blog will a separate category. But, now that I look over them content – I don’t think it is worth it anymore. After having about 70 active blogs and categories, if I wasn’t talking about a specific blog I seemed to have post the entry in the “Woohoo” and “Hmmm Things” categories.
