Katherines Corner has over 20,000 followers now and I am thrilled! I love that so many are interested in what I have to share and want to spend time here. We ( bloggers) all want people to read our blogs, enjoy what is shared and leave comments. But with popularity comes the possibility for spammers and hackers to find you too. This happened to me a little bit ago. Insert visual image of squeals and hair pulling out here.
They weren’t invited but they came anyway, bringing with them their nasty secret code to creep in and disturb all that is happy here.
Many of you are aware that I have a business called Blog Art By Katherine where I provide services to create pretty blogs ( website and online shops too) for you. I love to create headers and create blog makeovers that make your blog reflect your personality and blog theme. But…. I stand here ( yes I just stood up) before you to say” I do not have the tech skills to exorcise a nasty hacky spammy demon from your blog.”
Thank heaven for my blog angel Tyson!
He came in and cleaned up the nasty mess for me in no time and in addition provided me with peace of mind ( absence of mental stress). Tyson is a sweet young newlywed who I had the good fortune to meet a year or two ago through a social site. We have been connected ever since. When he heard my cry for help he sprung into action. That’s what blog angels do! He devoted his time to me and my blog and made it a safe and happy place free of nasty spammy trouble makers. Best of all he did it all without anyone even knowing he was here. That’s usually how angels work. He was both affordable and effective! He provides a service that scans for malware and malicious content that I highly recommend. 🙂
This is now going to sound like an advertisement for Tyson and his business. But, I would be remiss if I neglected to share his additional skills with you. Tyson’s business Mach 7 Enterprises ( the name even sounds futuristic and techy) can host your blog too. He also provides a back up service for your blog which I use! No more worries if you have a blog hiccup or other trouble. He keeps you safe and secure and it is very affordable. I’m not sure what peace of mind cost these days. But, I can tell you his monthly fee of $8.95 is within most budgets. I am happy Katherines Corner is protected under his blog angel wings. I hope you will consider Tyson for your backups, hosting and techy help. Please tell him I sent you 🙂
One last note, a reminder that I stick to. Make sure you are updating your blog with all of the latest updates ( verify your plugins are compatible with the newest version). WordPress and other blog services keep things updated for us to help keep the integrity of our blogs safe too. For more bloggy tips click HERE
