Two WordPress Must Have Items

When you use WordPress every day like I do, across multiple blogs, you start looking for the coolest and most useful plugins and tools to make your experience for yourself, and your readers better. Over the last few days, I’ve found two things I have to share with you.

#1 Cool WordPress Thing
Did you know that you can make your admin look different? Yep, thanks to Sam on Twitter, I found out about a WordPress admin design called Tiger. Wow, what a difference! It’s much cleaner.

But you know what the best part is? It makes your “write a post” text box much, much bigger. So you don’t have that really annoying scroll bar in the text box. The whole thing just feels like I’m using a Mac, which is a good thing.

#2 Cool WordPress Thing
This one is a plug-in called ‘What would Seth Godin Do‘. Found it over at Quick Online Tips blog (great blog by the way).

“What Would Seth Godin Do” is the unusual name for a wordpress plugin, but the plugin author has credited Seth Godin for the idea. I spotted this plugin at work on several blogs, so checked it out. Its based on Seth Godin idea of using cookies to distinguish between new and returning visitors to your site and offer two experiences to two different sorts of people.

I’ve been trying to think of reasons why I would use anything other than WordPress, and I can’t think of anything. Can you?
