Practice – Practice – Practice

Ok, I’ve been practicing the new blog post and WordPress plugins for more than a week. Check the biggest post on my website, so far. CLICK HERE

Here are the plugins that I use for the website (Probably not a good idea to share the list with the public, but heck – why not):

All-in-One WP MigrationGreat Migration tool, and easy to create backups and restore when needed. The free tier is enough for now.
Antispam BeeWho does like spam, no one right?
Contact Form 7Helps to create contact forms.
FoldersFiles and folder management
GenerateBlocksSome add-ons for Guttenberg Page Builder
Kadence Blocks – Gutenberg Blocks for Page Builder FeaturesSame as above, but with different add-ons
LiteSpeed CacheThe best cache plugin. Works only with LiteSpeed Server
Rank Math SEOSEO settings and helper
ShortPixel Image OptimizerImages optimization plugin. One of the best
Site Kit by GoogleGoogle plugin to link WordPress and Analytics
SpectraYet another extension for Guttenberg.
ThirstyAffiliatesAffiliate links closer and management.
Wordfence SecurityFirewall & Security
WP Mail SMTPSettings for e-mail sending
WPCode – Insert Headers, Footers, and Code SnippetsCustom snippets for Header, Footer, and In Code
WPS Hide LoginChanges login page. Not ideal, but hey – it’s working.

Issues and solutions

  • Quite a lot of time-consuming things due to no knowledge of blog post creation. Solution: Practice more, and post more, goal is to create the first 10 blog posts.
  • There’s no Ideal All-In-One plugin with blocks. Solution: stick with several for now, and probably buy a premium version to expand the missing functionality for one of the plugins. Still need to test and decide the best option.
  • Lack of time and energy.

Lessons Learned

  • Need to learn more about WordPress blocks and how to use them – This will speed up the process. This time I’ve spent almost 6 hours creating one blog post. (Writing, Editing, Images Preparation, Affiliate Programs research, Post Skeleton, and Visual Editing)
  • Do not stop. Just sit and do your thing. Remove all destructions from around. No news, no chats, no social media, and all other nonsense that steals attention.
  • Do not look back. There’s no way we can change the past, but we can build the future. 😊

Here’s my skill-tracking progress so far:
