This year I decided to install one of the plugins that was recommended for the DI Responsive Theme that I chose to use for my Camp2019 blog.. I installed the Contact Form 7. It was very easy and all I had to do was copy a short link and add it to one of my pages.
I also installed Akismet – It was a bit tricker in that I had to set the pricing to $0 so I could use the free version. (It kept prompting me to the paid plans).
I think a page builder might be an interesting thing to install on a site that has more static pages (rather than blog posts). Has anyone ever used a plugin to build webpages? If so, which one?? Elementor looks like it could be a pretty neat plugin. I will have to play around with it.
