Yikes! My Blog was Attacked and Deleted

It is a scary thing.  Google would not let me into my account this morning, saying it had been "illegally hacked, misused or otherwise compromised".  It was down and off world radar for over 12 hours.

But luckily, the problem was resolved within a few hours this morning.  Whatever the problem was...who knows?

Here is a response Ann Althouse received from Google when her blog was deleted about a year ago:
Here’s what happened: during scheduled maintenance work Wednesday night, we experienced some data corruption that impacted Blogger’s behavior. Since then, bloggers and readers may have experienced a variety of anomalies including intermittent outages, disappearing posts, and arriving at unintended blogs or error pages. A small subset of Blogger users (we estimate 0.16%) may have encountered additional problems specific to their accounts.

So could be that happened to me overnight.  Welcome back, viewers.


  1. It's scary to think this forum, where we share ideas and passions, could be a target of such negativity.
    Yet it's strangely exciting, too.
    You must be making a difference.

  2. WOW, that is scary! Glad to see you recovered:) HUGS!

  3. Glad this was resolved Nancy. Don`t know what I`d do without my daily dose of your blog!

  4. (oops! Didn't mean to hit publish so soon!)

    So glad it was resolved and that you are back. And thanks for the information.

  5. Glad you're back, hope Blogger doesn't have any more blips

  6. Glad all is well for you now, Nancy! What a fright for you.


Your comments mean a lot to me. Thank you so much for reading my post, and heaps more hugs and thank you's for leaving a note!
