So today both of our email accounts were compromised. My apologies to those of you who got the email saying I was in UK...And big thanks for those of you who came over to leave a comment to tell me. (I just recently turned off the comment moderation and now just receive notification of comments, so I actually got to look at comments for a bit and know (not just guess) that the email was hacked into.)
This leads to another thought. I had actually created an email address specific for this blog a while ago, but don't know how to go about changing the email on an already-created blog. I would want to sign in to gmail and blogger with the same email address. Any suggestions? I know I could change the email under settings to have comment notification change. I could also change my email in my profile. But I still don't know how to change the email for the full blog.
It has been suggested that we create a password of at least 10 characters. Of these characters, to be most secure, it should have 2 capital letters, 2 lowercase letters, 2 numbers, and 2 symbols, but still total at least 10 characters. I thought I would share this in case you want to make your passwords more secure and more hacker-resistant. (Suggested by someone who works with the national government.)
Of course a person should never duplicate passwords either, but you probably already knew that, like we did, but hopefully you don't do it either.
As of now, our email account seems okay (though we did lose a few emails today when the hacker deleted some recent emails). Our other accounts also seem okay, especially now that they have better passwords.
For a few minutes we thought we lost our blogs! Though I put more work into LLL, our family blog is where I document just about everything. I would have been devastated to lose that! My cousin told me she backs hers up to her hard drive every few months. I'm clueless as how to do that, but it sounded like a good idea.
Looking forward to a quieter weekend! If you have any advice on changing emails, please share!
