  1. A very nice list babanature… i would like to addup one more. subscribe to post plugin is also great for building reader’s engagement. thanks

  2. Cool reading Babanature, I think that’s one of the most enjoying things about plugins, they are great fun to try and experiment with.

  3. Thank you very much for sharing this information. This posting is really useful for me. I agree that there are a lot of plugs in we can make use of to help our blogs to go to the next level. But of course we can not use all of them in our blogs, we must choose the suitable ones like you mention above. Thank you again for this.

    1. Hello Heru,
      if you’re using a shared hosting, too much plugins will only suck up your cpu usage. that’s why it’s good to use only plugins that are important to you. Thanks for the comment and hope you’ll stop by some other time.

  4. Honestly Babanature, my most favorite plug-in for helping readers stick around more is the CommentLuv Premium plug-in. My second favorite is the ReplyMe but now that Andy has incorporated that into his plug-in we don’t need that extra one.

    That definitely helps your readers coming back for more. That is if you have made your content interesting enough and continue to ask them questions. Most of the time they’ll want to come back by and answer what you’ve asked. I love that plug-in, it’s a must have for every blogger.

    I can’t think of any others then these mentioned here. Great list I’ll definitely agree.


    1. Hello Adrienne,
      right! since the day i added the commentluv plugin to my blog, my blog has truly change (comment wise), Now i receive comments more than usual. Those two pluggins are plugin every blogger should have. Glad you find the list interesting and thanks for the comment.

  5. I have been using the free version of Commentluv for sometime on my personal blog and I like it very much. But I am still on the edge when it comes to deciding on the comment love premium version. I know the price is not huge… Maybe someday I might decide to go for it.

    1. Hello Justin,
      yeah! the free version of commentluv is great but the premium have features way beyond the free but still free is still enough as long as you add it up with other plugins from the above list. Thanks for the comment
