If you browse across some WordPress blogs, specially recently launched ones, you will notice that a lot of people keep the Meta section that comes with their theme on the sidebar. If you do, remove it!
The Meta section includes some admin links like “Login” or “XHTML Valid.” While those links might be useful for the owner of the blog, they offer no value at all for the reader. Sometimes the Meta might even be counterproductive, since it also carries a link to the WordPress RSS feed. If you are using Feedburner some of your readers might end up with the wrong feed if they click on these links.
The next time you set a WordPress blog up, start by removing the Meta section from the sidebar.
