    Hi bhw members..:D
    Hope you all are fine..
    I am newbie..:confused:

    I had setup a new Wordpress blog. I need to know waht are the commonly used plugins for customising my blog. My blog is a personal blog where i write about my activities and about things that i come across. something like a diary. I would like to have a few suggestions from bhw experts here.:scratchch

    I installed SEO booster lite and sociable plugins.

    Is there any WYSIWG type wordpress theme creator or editor?

    Man wordpress has tons. I MEAN TONS. just use the search plugins function inside wp-admin to suit your needs.

    I wouldn´t go withouth google xml sitemaps and all in one seo pack. they´re a must for every blog IMHO, and then every project I add corresponding plugins.

    If you happen to have a twitter account, then twitter tools is also nice.

    Yup, Blackrat is right, All In One SEO is a must, what's more don't forget to change your permalinks structure to /%postname%/ so each link to your post gets your post title, it's good for seo. You can also use /%category%/%postname%/ if your categories contain relevant keywords for your site.

    I think the social media share plugins are good if you're wanting to spread the word about your blog.

    I'd add in there a sitemap generator as well.
