I am fairly new to WordPress and blogging. I would like to add a few features, but I don't know where to get the best tools for them. Maybe someone here can recommend where:
1. Tag Cloud - I have seen this on alot of blogs and would really like to have it my site. I may have the wrong name for it, so I will explain. It's a sidebar plugin (I think) that takes tags from posts and lists them. As you use certain tags more frequently, the font size will get bigger and darker.
2. Post Rating - I downloaded Popularity Contest, but I can't get it to work. I activated it in the Plugin Admin, but when I checked my site, it wasn't working.
3. Stats - I would like to put a stats counter on the site for number of visits, number of types a post is read, etc.
I hope that I can get some help from you all.
