Now that this blog has been running for a while and I have actually had some feedback (not in the comments – that is only spam – see below) about it, it was time to do some tidying up of the way that the blog appears on the screen. The two primarily changes that I wanted to make were the removal of the calendar and the

Meta section from the sidebar. The calendar was superfluous given that my blog entries are not time specific and overall it did not add anything to the look and feel of the blog.

Meta Section

The Meta section of the blog includes admin links such as “Login” that are useful to me as the owner of the blog, but offer no value to the reader and even ending up confusing one of them as being part of the blog. I did some research on getting rid of the

Meta section and quickly came across a Daily Blog Tip entitled Remove the Meta from your Sidebar. After a couple of adjustments in the WordPress control panel, it was gone.I plan to stop writing about comment spam on a weekly basis in a similar manner to the website statistics, but I had to mention some spam that came in this week for its sheer incomprehensibility. The best part of the comment, “nzpihuot ahey igwltnh oqsjltdhw acdtszwm wgqjx qozsnxjd”, was that it was for the Learning how to blog – Post Length and Frequency blog entry. Maybe I should re-title the blog entry “Spam Attractor”.
