I had previously tagged this useful looking article with some basic steps to take on a new WordPress install. So I did a couple of the easist/most obvious to get myself going here.
- I added an RSS feed to the sidebar
- I changed the default admin user
- I set the permalink style
- I got a WordPress api key and enabled akismet spam filtering
I did not change the default theme. Maybe I’ll do that next. Of course I’d really like to design my own, but it doesn’t seem to be a priority at this moment.
