So one of the biggest changes I have made in 2017 so far is this site. For starters I kicked in the new WordPress 2017 Theme. I really like the simple look and the functionality it brings to the table.
The second being I updated some of the plugins on the back-end, and removed some more.
This is probably one of my favorite plugins ever. I have been using WordPress for years now, and one of the biggest things that always got to me was the login page. A page not many people normally see if you run a blog by yourself, but still we need to show it some love. Theme My Login does exactly that. This plugin takes the CSS from the rest of your site and applies it to a new login page. It also through in some nice widgets to use instead of the standard META ones. I highly recommend it.
