This is a guest contribution. Thank you Sarah Smith for fantastic illustrations. Having a blog requires more work than posting your content. You have to search on topics that your audience will find helpful or interesting. You should also engage with them and make your site more searchable to get more visitors.
Probably the best books to get started with WordPress
Another vital thing to remember when making or running a blog is to ensure your blog security. Like your house, office, or car, someone could barge in and attack your WordPress blog without proper security features. You don’t want this, especially if you want to make your site grow and become a hit.
Themes and plugins are fantastic additions to your blog. They extend its features and they also make your site look amazing. However, those that have weak coding and are not updated are common ways hackers get their hands on the site. Make sure that you use secured add-ons that are constantly updated for security purposes.
WordPress is a popular blogging platform and it typically delivers regular security updates to users. However, some bloggers still fail to install these updates, causing their sites to be vulnerable to malicious software and attackers.
Your password must also be strong to prevent unauthorized access. This is true with the passwords of the guest contributors that you allow to post on your site.
These are just some of the security risks that you may experience with your WordPress site. We listed more in an infographic so you will be aware of these threats.
