I debated putting this up here worried if it would cause more pain for me then it’s worth. But I can’t shake the sickness I have in my stomach about what happened. As you might remember, I used to have a blog hosted on blogger. When I moved over to this new blog. I all but forgot about it. I used to get nasty comments on that blog (that luckily I was able to delete before most of you saw). When I left I turned off the ability for people to post comments and figured I was safe. I was WRONG!

It seems earlier this month I was hacked and a very inappropriate post was left. Since I never check that blog I had NO IDEA! It was actually a fellow photographer that came upon my old blog and that post. I immediately logged in, deleted the post and my entire old blog! I was so ashamed this post was out there! I was able to look at the stats for those that had recently viewed my site. I seemed to be getting a lot of hits from the same IP address in California, so I suspect that may be where I was hacked from :(

I want to apologize to any and all that saw that post! It was NOT from me!!! And I am just sickened at the length of time it was posted on my site! Second, I want to share that security is why I switched over to a blog on my own site. You would not believe the spam that comes to my blog, but luckily my new blog has better filtering and security! Third, I want to caution you out there in Cyberspace. I try to protect your children by not posting names and avoiding locations. You should see some of the things people are searching for when they find my site. There are a lot of sick people out there!

Please know, especially as a mom, my concern is for your children and their safety. All of your galleries are password protected and removed from my hosting server when they expire! And if you prefer I will avoid posting your sneak peeks on the blog all together!

I want to thank those out there that knew immediately the post on my old site was a hack and attempted to notify me! It’s nice to know there are people out there looking out for each other.
