    • We will discuss the value of a "static site" and plans for posting your work to a permanent server.
    • Here is one plug-in to consider. Note that since we only need to use it once ... that the preservation of the plug-in itself is not an issue!
  2. Blogging: We will discuss both blogging (using posts in WordPress) and accepting comments.
    • The most important consideration is to use the Akismet plugin (and be sure to request your Akismet key). This plugin was likely included in your WordPress installation but does not activate withour your key.
    • Be sure also to go to SETTINGS / DISCUSSION and carefully review your settings.
