Date And Time Zone Settings:

In this video we set up the basic WordPress blog settings. You will see a section in the video where I go over the settings in the "General" menu tab under "Settings".

Be sure to choose your time zone and set the time and date. This time value is reflected in the blog posts and comments, rather than be taken from the system time of your computer.

Set Up Your Own Avatar:

Get your own Avatar setup so your picture appears beside comments you leave, as you visit different blogs. The website to set this up is gravatar.com

WordPress Update Services Ping List:

When you publish a new post, WordPress automatically notifies the following site update services.

Notice: Since the above video was recorded, there has been an update regarding the ping list, and the following should be used instead: Copy the list below into the [Settings / General / Update Services] area:

http://rpc.pingomatic.com
http://www.blogpeople.net/servlet/weblogUpdates
http://ping.myblog.jp
