Recommended Beginners WordPress Plugins for people new to WordPress. I am more or less still a WordPress beginner when I wrote this article, I learn new things every day, and I’m glad it’s my turn to teach someone else for a change – Recommended WordPress Plugins For Beginners.
Impacting knowledge has a good feeling; I am just starting to see what drives our teachers, lecturers to keep on teaching. They say our rewards are in heaven, but we mainly teach for the joy of impacting the knowledge we gained in someone’s life to make that person better.
When I started blogging on WordPress which was a few months ago, I didn’t know anything about Plugins because I was coming from a blogger, then we used to do everything manually, add CSS codes, edit them manually, add HTML codes.
I still remember how much I wrote my theme.html code while I was in blogger. It was hectic, well this was over two years ago, I don’t know how things are in blogger right now, and I hope that there have been some improvements.
Well, my experience in Blogger was with another website, it’s pretty much dead now because I was busy with school work and all, but now, I’ve got time.
So, I started NairaTips some months back on WordPress, and even then I still did not know about the existence of Plugins and how they made one’s life more comfortable, but after a few google searches, and with the help of WPBeginner I learned about the existence of Plugins and how sweet and easy they make blogging.

As a WordPress beginner, I won’t be surprised if, in your first few months, you do either of these two things
- Make use of no Plugins at all because you don’t know about its the existence
- Use too many Plugins because you over exist about them and you just can’t help yourself to reduce but only see yourself adding new ones.
Funny enough, both of these happened to me, it was quite an experience but I came out of both more knowledgeable and a better person. This brings me to today’s Blogging Tip which is Recommended Plugins for WordPress Beginners.
