  2. Go here > Users > All Users and delete any user that does not belong there.
    Disable post by email > http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-by-email/
    Disable post by voice > http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-by-voice/
    Change your blog password to a very difficult one > http://en.support.wordpress.com/passwords/#change-your-password
    Use a secure, encrypted connection to connect to your Dashboard. Under Users → Personal Settings, check the box that says “Always use HTTPS when visiting administration pages, and click Save Changes.
    Go to your email program and change the password to a very difficult one

  3. http://diamondswing.com/ is a self-hosted WordPress.org blog, which we really can't help with.

    To clear up any confusion, WordPress.com and WordPress.org are two different entities.

    WordPress.org has complete support and documentation sites for self-hosted/installed versions of WordPress via their Codex and Support Forums.
