Akismet is free plugin which provides intelligent spam-blocking for WordPress users. Since I installed it 15 days ago,  it has successfully blocked 60 spam comments.

It’s installed by default for users of but if, like me, you host your own blog, it’s easy to download and install the plugin, although you’ll need to sign up for a free account to receive the required API key.

I’ve upgraded my version of WordPress from 1.5.2 to 2.0. I haven’t had much time to play with it yet, but it all seems to be running nicely so far.

By the way, Happy New Year :)
