Comment Spam

I have a couple of WordPress Blogs as Hosted Sites and have been getting killed with Comment Spam. I installed a new Plugin today to see if that helps.

I am using the Growmap Anti-Spam Plugin on another blog, and that worked really well for awhile, but it appears there is a work-around for the Spammers, and now I am getting swamped again on that blog.

I am trying the “Spam Free WordPress” Plugin for this site to see if it is effective.

Growmap is rated 5 stars, and Spam Free WordPress is only rated 4 stars, so we’ll see which one works best.

Twitter Integration

It took awhile, but I worked through the Hosted WordPress to Twitter integration.

Now each new blog post and blog update should create a Tweet on @ReZourceGuy

I remember doing this years ago with a WordPress Blog, but thought the process would have been a bit more “Plug & Play” in 2012.

I had to create API keys and logins and passwords and ‘Oauth’ keys and more just to make sure that www.ReZourceGuy.com blog posts would automatically populate the Twitter Timeline for www.Twitter.com/ReZourceGuy

Let’s hope it works, after all of that effort! 🙂
