So here are 15 of my favorite Firefox plugins that I use everyday, and I recommend you use them to make you a better blogger. Oh yea and for the IE, Safari and Chrome users, this list is for you to since most of these plugins are compatible.
In the list I will point out my ALL TIME favs..that I would never leave home without.

Content recommendations while you write. Zemanta helps you enhance you blogs with relevant images, videos, links or tags. Works with WordPress, Blogger, TypePad and others.
TOP: Now Zemanta is a great plugin, it does everything I need right in my blog dashboard or on Windows Writer. Best part is I can add my own related posts without needing a WordPress plugin.

This is my #1 plugin hands down!…This is my little FREE secret weapon to getting ranked pretty well for my keywords against HUGE competition with my young blog.
I’m sure a few of you already know about Onlywire but havn’t put it to use. I’m telling you now, if you are on a budget and can’t afford a stand alone bookmarking software then Onlywire has to be one of your new tools to use!
