Reports of My Death Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

Hey Everybody!
I’m sorry I disappeared on you – I wasn’t really trying to fake my own death. That’s just overdone, isn’t it? Plus, I wouldn’t have been any better at it than some others that have tried, since Hillary posted a picture of me yesterday and I am clearly alive and well in that photo.

Anyway, it was really just a series of unfortunate events that wound up making a lot of people very nervous.

Dale and I went on vacation this week so I had 3 posts pre-written to take me through Wednesday. I planned on checking the blog and responding to emails while away but my laptop had issues with Hillary’s wireless and I couldn’t actually do any of that. I then planned on posting Thursday morning (from the airport) telling you where we had been and all that stuff – Wednesday’s photo was a big hint, by the way. However, when I attempted to get into WordPress Thursday morning I was shut out because someone had hacked into my blog with some sort of phishing thing. SiteGround shut me down and it has been a real hassle getting things back up.

JessaLu has been my tech guru once again. I’d still be floundering around in admin files and support tickets if it weren’t for her. That said, we’ve done a work around here that SiteGround may or may not approve of – meaning this may disappear again.

So just know that I’m fine and not a zombie. The blog will be fine eventually and all is well here at Carole Knits. The dog and cat survived our time away and things are returning to normal. Thanks to each of you who emailed me to make sure I was okay! Keep your fingers crossed that things go smoothly from this point forward.

  1. I’m so sorry this happened to you! Jessalu is a saint! Glad you’re back up and running again.

  2. Good to have you back. Tech work = bleck! Hope you can get it ironed out without much sweat and swearing.

  3. Glad you had a nice vacation and glad that you are up and running again. Hope all your tech problems are resolved soon. Have a great weekend!

  4. So glad you are still with us! My morning break just isn’t the same without a visit to “Carole Knits.”

  5. Glad to see you back. I had worried a bit and then got your emails all at the same time and figured everything was fine. Made 14 King Cakes today and am wiped out! Actually made 13 (added brown sugar to the 14th and cut it up into sticky buns for the people helping). My husband and I (and some scout friends) will be cooking for 200 for a Mardi Gras party at church tomorrow. At that point I will need a vacation! Have a great weekend.

  6. Glad to see everything back up and well again, Carole. I’m sorry for the technical difficulties, and hope it is all better now.

  7. Good to hear all is well. I didn’t believe it anyway as it wasn’t reported on Wikipedia where everyone goes to find out the truth.

  8. Since I’ve been a bad bad blog reader, I was clueless! Until this morning, when several other sites I’d read first talked about it… How does a blog get hacked? I thought computers are supposed to make our lives easier, and I do enjoy this social networking, but honestly, sometimes they just take too much of our time!

  9. Whew! Glad you’re back (more or less, or sorta!) and hope the blog stays put. Margene was good enough to pass on that you’d had blog trouble, so I didn’t worry…
    I don’t get these folks who hack into blogs, and I’d have NO idea how to get things back on track.
