1. First of all, I was DELUGED with SPAM comments on (mostly) two of my posts. My gmail inbox was packed full of crappy spam! :/
2. Then my gmail account was compromised, and my Facebook account. I had to delete some Facebook posts and links I didn't post! Please, if you've gotten an odd comment on Facebook from me the past couple of days, assume it wasn't from me.
At first I set my blog to invitation only, and the spam did stop. Grace suggested that I moderate all comments for a little while. I'm doing that. I reset the password to gmail and I think that's taken care of for now. Google has been helpful with this issue. Any other advice? The big issue is actually finding important emails, like the ones form my daughter's school. I usually get several emails from her school weekly, and I get panicked if I can't find them in the middle of all the spam.
Thanks for your help!
This is a post that I intended for yesterday, but with all the problems with gmail, Facebook, and Spam I didn't want to post for fear of even more spam.
First of all, our country is split, and the election was not a mandate like the 2008 and 2010 elections. Our country not only elected a democratic President, but also elected a republican House of Representatives. Obviously the electorate wants a mixed, more moderate approach in solving our problems. We have millions suffering without jobs, and thousands homeless from Hurricane Sandy. I pray that both parties can work together and compromise to get us back on track and avoid the impending financial cliff. We have a history of strong leaders working together for the betterment of the United States of America: Ronald Reagan and Tip O'Neil and Bill Clinton and Newt Gingrich are two examples. Let's pray that Barack Obama and John Boehner can work together, and let's pray that they start by implementing all recommendations in Simpson-Bowles.
I have always loved red, white, and blue rooms. In honor of the election, I wanted to feature a patriotic bedroom.
