What to do if Your Blog is Hacked


It is difficult to know what to do if your blog is hacked. A while ago, my blog was hacked and I don’t mind revealing that I was in a bit of a panic when I realised what had happened. Here is what I did to get my website up and running again.


How to Know if Your Website has been Hacked

It is important to be able to identify if your website has been hacked. Nowadays, hackers are very sneaky and it is sometimes difficult to tell, at least to start with anyway.

I stated noticing things were a bit strange with my website. There was something happening on it but I couldn’t quite put my finger on it.

7 Incredible Autumn Blog Posts to Inspire You

Here are our 7 incredible autumn blog posts that will convince you that this time of year is great for families.

People always seem to have a preference as to which season is their favourite.  Generally, our friends and family favour the summer sun to drizzly autumn.  I actually like all the seasons almost equally and enjoy them all as they come around each year.

Blogging Goals for January 2016

I have been thinking long and hard about my blogging goals for January 2016.  I do like to set myself goals as it helps me to focus and usually helps me to learn more.  I am pleased to say that I have managed to achieve the majority of the goals I had set for myself throughout the year.  I realise that goal setting doesn’t work for some people but for me, it is a great motivation tool.

My Blogging Goals for January 2016

To improve my photography skills.

Getting a new camera and a ‘Dummies’ guide to using it, this Christmas will certainly help me to achieve this goal.  I feel that the photos on my blog have improved over 2015 but I would like them to be even better in 2016.  I would like to learn more about the technical side of using a SLR camera to get out of using the automatic mode and to understand how to use more of the manual features.
