7 Best Plugins to Increase Social Media Traffic to Your Site
Blogging for me has always been fun. This makes my job very enjoyable, because everyday I get to do what I love. Mark Twain once said, ‘a person who holds a cat by its tail learns something that he cannot know in any other way.’ With time I have become an expert in using the WordPress Platform.
During my journey, I took a pretty big hit when someone once hacked my accounts-and, well, lets just say, did a makeover on my websites. This incidence happened when I had tens of thousands of visitors on one of my sites. It’s pretty safe to say that it has not been the smoothest sail for me. There have been ups and downs, but I have always managed to land on my feet.
