I’ve been on WordPress for about 2 years now. Plenty of bloggers have talked about why they made the switch and how they made the switch, so I never felt the need to discuss it. What I did want to talk about is the Ultimate Book Blogger Plugin.
When I first switched, the UBB plugin seemed like an unnecessary expense to what had already been a pretty costly move. But, I eventually gave in, and I wish I had sooner. This week, I upgraded to the version 3 beta, and my love for this plugin doubled.
Some of the features that make it seriously worth the money:
- Import book info and auto-format. Seriously, I copy and paste the ISBN when I open my draft and the plug in imports all of the information. When I publish, the plugin formats all the book information so that it looks the same every time. I used to spend A LOT of time copy and pasting book information and making sure to format it correctly. These days, I’m busier than ever and the plugin allows me to use my time to actually write posts.
- New in the beta is that the plugin will now format multiple books per post.
- The plugin tracks a lot of information, which means it will create review indexes by any parameter I might need (author, publisher, date, etc). I haven’t done this yet, although it is on my blog to do list.
- It also allows me to create “wrap ups” with a simple line of text. For example, it took me 5 seconds to insert all of my reviews for January into this post:
The best part is that the plugin is easily customizable. It allows you to control what information is going to display and how. For me, this plugin alone is reason enough to switch to WordPress.
