I swear Tom reads my mind

Having used WordPress for over 10 years now… I’ve just recently stumbled across GP theme, his grid columns plugin, and now this show posts plugin. This does everything I need it to do, and without the bloat. Here are a few examples of ways I use it on my sites:

– Show “featured posts” on sidebar by tagging my best posts in a special category
– Show latest blog posts in a column in the middle of the page. In fact, I have one site that uses 2 different WP Show Post shortcodes, and that is the entire page contents.
– Show recent posts on sidebar
– Show last updated/modified posts on sidebar.

Keep up the great work Tom!
