    I use blogger, and whenever I see new plugins like these, I wish I kept my wordpress site a long time ago.

    • Fabrizio says:

      Jim, I also use Blogger for one of my own blog’s but WordPress is definitely something you should use for at least one site. But Blogger is starting to come out of the limelight with some new features and a new dashboard I’ve also noticed.

      Thanks Linda, yes the Sharebar plugin is a great find. Not many of them work quite as well as the Sharebar does, and offers easy integration and customization, enjoy :)

  5. These plugins are really awesome and they will make work easier for many website owners. I am quite familiar with mail chimp but the rest of the plugins also seem to be very useful. I have seen the share bar on some websites and I must say it is quite cool.
