Plugins are an amazing aspect of WordPress and are a big part of the reason why so many people use this platform to create blogs, but not all plugins are safe, secure and compatible. Be sure that you do some research before downloading multiple plugins and always look at the reviews before activating them on your blog. Don't worry! In this module I'm going to show you a few plugins that every travel blog should have.


Now that your blog is starting to come along nicely, it's worth creating a profile for yourself so that everyone knows who is behind the website. This is great for brand building and for personalization of your site.
