God Bless! I am Back!

I have been pretty silent for the past couple of days. There has neither been activity from me at my blogs nor at my friends' blogs either. You might think I was in hibernating. If so there was a good reason for it. The truth of the matter is that I was online the whole time. I was not dormant. 

I know it would come as a shock to everyone.  Lainy’s Musings WAS HIJACKED. I had no access to the Blogger Admin Dashboard for my most precious blog “Lainy’s Musings”. It was not until today that I was able to recover Lainy’s Musings.

The trauma in losing the blog that is about  to celebrate its first birthday on April 26  and where Bloggers’ Celebration is taking  place was nightmar-ish!  

I felt totally devastated! 

The last time I had access to Lainy’s Musings Admin Dashboard was on Saturday, April 11. That was when I announced a  contestant’s disqualification. I discovered  something was amiss on Monday when I couldn’t  log in using the same account details that  I have always been using. 

I am not pointing a finger at anyone. This untoward event had caused me distress and anxiety. Everything clouded on me and I did not  feel like blogging anymore! It dawned on me that having the writing competition was a  huge mistake. But my closest friends who were with me in this tough journey never failed in giving the support and encouragement that I needed most. 

The ordeal that I and my one very good friend went through to retrieve my blog was  unthinkable. He even had to stay up all night  until the wee hours of the morning.

He knew all that had happened to my blog. Most of what he explained is beyond my comprehension as I am not blog-technically inclined. There were a lot of new things that I did learn about how it was possible for the hacker to hijack my blog.

I know more or less now how vulnerable Blogger ( is and how easily it may be hacked and hijacked. To explain the intricacies of how Lainy's Musings was hijacked would need my friend to explain it to you because I do not think I am capable in rendering an intelligible explanation.

At the behest of my worthy blog-wise advisors, I have been persuaded to migrate to WordPress and operate this new Lainy's Musings WP Blog from an external webhost. This is far more superior in providing the Blog protection as well as give me more direct control over the Blog.
