The best way to maintain your blog's security is to keep up-to-date with WordPress releases. You can check the postings listed in the Dashboard on your administration pages. Any new releases, especially security fixes, will be noted there. If there are any new releases, the announcement usually details the steps you need to take to update your blog. Invariably with WordPress, the process is very simple.
It is also a good idea to check the home sites of any plug-ins and themes you have installed. Perhaps once a month is often enough. Again, any new releases or security fixes will be noted there.
