Don’t be an Admin
When you first set up a Wordpress blog your username is usually Admin and this is what hackers (especialy the 12 year old variety) tend to look for first to try and hack.
By creating a new user and giving it admininstration rights and then reducing the original Admin users rights to ‘subscriber’ or ‘no role for this site’, you will effectively mess with a potential hackers head. They may be able to hack your admin user, but if they do they have no power to DO anything!
