Know the Code

Just a Tip…

I have seen posts around the weblog world about people signing up for NaNoWriMo. (No, I am not one of them. I am not that crazy – have too much to do already!) I realized this morning that if you are doing that and you are using MT to record your writing, you can also use it to count your words! All you need is the Word count plugin for Movable Type from the Kalsey Consulting Group!

Other nifty plug-ins that I need to run myself include the On this day…, the Sanitize plugin (more on that here), related entries plugin (sample code at Unmade) and many more. Matter of fact, the Kalsey Consulting MT archives are right here if you want some more ideas! (And Kymberlie? They have MTAmazon Sample Templates here.) There are a lot of other plugins listed at the MT Resources page. Check them out!

Before NaNoWriMo, I used the Word Count plugin — I love the little tool, and it reminds me of what I can produce in a particular day. So if I’m successful with this writing project next month, using the Word Count plugin to track my progress, and if my blogging also reduces, then I know I’m capable of longer writing efforts… and I may have to change my blogging style!

Hehe, I definitely want to set aside time to play with more of the plugins available out there. So far, I’ve just used the MTMacros plugin, but I see a LOT of possibility for that one. 🙂
