Hackers are everywhere on the internet. WordPress is one of the more secure pieces of software that is available, but when it is the most popular site-builder in the world today, it is also a desirable target for hackers.
Security is very important! For anyone who has ever been hacked and had their site compromised, lost data, offended readers with content they didn’t put there, etc., you will understand how important it is.
For those who do not understand this… You should just believe it.
Don’t be afraid that it looks a little long. It’s not too terribly difficult to understand and, even if you don’t understand it all, you’ll learn valuable things from it!
Happy safe blogging (Or whatever else it is you do besides blog).
