Five Rookie WordPress Errors I Have Made and So Will You

I've been mixed up in a bunch of WordPress sites lately, and I'm not just talking about the mixed-up WordPress site you're reading right now.

Are we alone? Nobody watching? Good. I want to tell you about a secret blog.

Pardon my limedust, part II

Ok, I waited for Wordpress 2.3 and have installed it. Next steps, importing all the old entries and fixing up the template. Thank you for your patience during this time of transition.
