Not that anyone asked.

When it comes to the plugins on my blog I like to think I’m a bit of a minimalist.

No Plugins
I don’t have any plugins currently running at

My “professional” blog at is running bare bones WordPress, on the occasion of a new version update I’ll run WP-Optimize to clean things up a bit then uninstall it. I’d keep it around if I had more things going on over there.

Four Plugins
On this very site I’m running four. Jetpack, Akismet, VaultPress and a brute force security plugin in the Must-use folder that I’m considering removing as it’s a little redundant alongside Jetpack.

I get some grief from friends for using Jetpack but find many of it’s features worthwhile. Video CDN, automatic backups, comment spam filtering.
