WP-Rocket caches the entire site to improve site speed and make sure the site doesn't crumble if you invite 1000 of your closest friends.0
After Google moronically axed Feedburner, I was forced to find a new RSS host. I'm not in love with Feedburner's interface, but they're the last man standing … er, best overall!0

Managing every social media account is a time sink, but CoSchedule handles Facebook, Twitter, G+, and Pinterest all from your WordPress admin.0
Once you get beyond 100+ posts, it gets ridiculously hard managing links.
HIF has over 4,000.
Pretty Link Pro helps alleviate this problem by giving you a central admin panel to view, manage, and update your links. They have real-time stats, the ability to rotate through multiple links, and tons of other great features.0
It's amazing how many spam comments get fired at a site daily. I'm talking thousands by the hour. Akismet puts up a wall, for free, and stops 99.999% of all the bad comments.0
S#*t happens. VaultPress saves the day. Rinse, repeat. They provide real-time backup of all my files plus the ability to rollback to a previous safe versions. There are cheaper alternatives on the market, but they tend to either not work as well, be more cumbersome to setup, or a variation of those two. VaultPress is made by Automattic, the parent company for WordPress, so you know it's well coded and built to work.0
