I haven’t been using WordPress for all that long so I’m not sure how much of a problem this actually is, but this post How to Stop Your WordPress Blog Getting Hacked over on SEM Labs has some good security measures that are probably a good idea to put in place just in case.

I did what ones I could. Some measures are dependent on where and how you have your blog hosts. I’d suggest doing what you can, make regular backups and hope for the best. 🙂

I still a little new to this whole blogging thing, so I keep my eye out for anything that will help me out. Darren Rowse over at ProBlogger has a great list of Seven Essential Applications For Bloggers Using Windows.

They are

  1. Windows Live Writer
  2. Evernote
  3. FeedDemon RSS Reader
  4. Q10
  5. FileZilla
  6. FastStone Capture
  7. TweetDeck

The first application I tried was EverNote, and it’s great! It allows me to make a note of web sites and stuff easily for reference later on. I love it, I’m a convert.
