Dear readers, I wanted to let you know that recently my blog and email were tampered with....or hacked. I'm not sure exactly what happened but one day I tried to log into my blog and it was locked by Google for suspicious activity. I have had tons of robot hits on several post lately too, maybe they are connected. Anyway, I experienced the panic that I have heard others describe when you can no longer enter and manage your blog! It is scary, we bloggers invest a lot of time and effort into our blogs.
Soon I was able to log in though thanks to having a cell phone on file that Google could text a code to and I thought all was fine again. However, I have been receiving emails from friends saying my email has been hijacked and you all are receiving emails from me that I DID NOT SEND! I am very sorry for that. If you have received an email that is a one liner asking you to check out a link it is a hijacked email! I hope soon all will be back to normal.
My suggestion on the other side of this problem? When we are told to use new passwords on our accounts occasionally...on any online accounts...it's a really good idea. It makes it much harder for hackers or web bots to find a way in. I will be doing it every month or so from now on. A lot of extra work but so worth it to keep info safe.
Thanks for reading.
