    That’s a lot of blogs (too bad I can’t visualize the number..but still, that’s a lot of blogs).

    Appreciate the plugins list, Cendrine :) I am almost done with my installed plugins list, I just need to go over and finalize it before I launch the blog (this week, I am focusing on creating pages).

    Anyways, thank you for the post! Hope you had an awesome Tue :)
