Top 3 New WordPress Plugins of the Week

  1. Broken Links Remover checks your posts for broken links and removes them until you fix the link. Insanely useful and will keep your readers from clicking dead links and becoming aggravated.
  2. Events Manager is a plugin to manage events such as music gigs, art expositions, or just job meetings. Events Manager inserts an Events page in the Manage menu of WordPress Administration, to let you insert, modify and delete events. You can describe events specifying their date and location, and also add a few notes.
  3. Snazzy Archives takes your boring archives page and snazzes it up. No longer will your archive page just be hundreds of links. Snazzy Archives should be incorporated as a main feature of WordPress.

I’ve been slow on updating this week as I’ve been on vacation for quite a few days. I’ll be updating this week on how to keep a blog alive when you don’t have time to update.
