    Install a comment plugin like Akismet, it should be already installed... activated and get a key to use it.

    I read that Akismet charges for their service so I thought it would be easier to add the captcha.

    If your blog is making over $500 per month there's a fee.

    Default Captcha Plugin

    I'm new to blogging and found that I was receiving daily comment spam at www.besslee.com. I recently downloaded SI Catpcha from the WordPress plugin directory. It's free.

    The spam stopped immediately and hasn't come back. It's been a few days now, and normally I received spam a couple of times a day.

    Seems to be working. Here's the link: SI Captcha

    Wishing you a spam-free site,

    yes, that is a great plug-in. It shuts down automated spam in a heartbeat.
