#SocialCafe Chat Topic: Blogging: Platforms and Plugins

View the announcement for this #SocialCafe Chat..

  1. Do you prefer self-hosted blogging or platform-hosted blogging?

It seems, from those participating in the chat this evening, that the self-hosted Wordpress blogging platform is quite popular. The stats from a year ago seem to agree with that, as well.

  1. What blogging platform appeals to you most and why?

The chat continues to favor that Wordpress platform.

  1. What plugins do you have issue with and why?

The plugin issues relate more to whether they work and work well. As Tamara Wilson so eloquently pointed out, if it doesn't work, she replaces it.

  1. What plugins do you consider essential for your blog?

There are many plugins that may be considered essential. The consensus seems to be those that include SEO, social sharing, mobile site, maintenance, spam control, and Google Sitemaps.
