A Blog Swapping Scenario
So. the Emerald Angel Website has been hacked somehow. Since I was taking a break after learning I'm expecting another baby last fall, I'm unsure of when this breech of security happened. It likely happened because I wasn't keeping up with updating the WordPress software since fall. There were crazy links all over the website and I was able to remove some of them. A few are still showing up. So, once again I have to go through this long process of rebuilding the website.
This time, I've had it. I'm done with using PHPBB or WordPress or anything of that sort. The website will be coded in basic HTML. If anyone gets into the site, I can fix the issues quickly.
I'll continue to blog, but not through the web host. I've moved all the posts from the website to my Google+ Blogger Blog. In the move, of course I can't copy over the comments the previous posts had received. It's an acceptable loss. Using Blogger to make the posts is better in my situation because the updates and security are not up to me to keep up with, but the staff behind Blogger itself.
I'm tired of what little free time I'm able to scrape up having to go into maintaining, fixing, repairing, or whatever else needs to be done for the website. I want to use my time to create art, games, and comics. Not spend days having to fix a hacked WordPress blog!!
So, all the posts are here now. Here to stay. I'll work out a design for the website host that will put the posts on the front page of the website itself with an RSS Feed or something simple like that.
So, don't be surprised if the website is being dismantled and rearranged. I'm not sure how long this is going to take because I don't have much free time. I'll post a new entry in the blog once the website is finished.
Matthew 18:8 NIV If your hand or your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life maimed or crippled than to have two hands or two feet and be thrown into eternal fire.
