Some blogging friends such as e-Mom of Chrysalis and scribbler notified me of my hijacked blog. No one could read my blog and leave a message for a month. Actually, before they did, I already had noticed it but I was not so sure if the same thing was appearing if my blog is opened in another computer. And they both confirmed such problem that after just a few seconds of opening my blog, they would see a website taking over - meta-boom.org which sells stuff such as insurance, cranes, trucks, website help, etc. How did I fix it? I followed the suggestion of e-Mom to Google search for a solution. I tried every suggestion including changing my password, changing my HTML but the only thing that worked was deleting a comment I was suspicious of - named Aloe Vera which has a verifiable website on Forever Living products. When I deleted it, the bug disappeared right away. So, Eureka!!! I rejoice for recovering my hijacked blog.
So fellow bloggers out there, even if we control our comments, there can still be infiltrators who have bad intentions. Oh, this world is really full of trickery so we must really be cautious! And how I missed my blog:) Thanks e-Mom for encouraging me not to give up. I'm now more confident that there's always a solution to any problem- big or small - so we should not panic when things go wrong.
Enjoying a Warm Spring Day
