You see that blog post right below this one??? The one about the personal signature???
I totally did NOT post that!
How did that get there?
No one has my password.
I'm freaking out that someone had/has the ability to put that on my blog.
Can anyone tell me how that happened?
Or who do I go to to find out?
I feel like someone has broken into my house.

Hurry! He may still be here hiding in the bathtub!

***thank you, everyone, for all of your suggestions and attempts to stop me from looking in the bathtub everytime i came to blog!
i have followed all of your suggestions and did a little research on my account page and saw that quite a while ago i had given flickr permission to post pics on my blog, meaning that i could post photos directly from flickr without going through my software program or whatever first.
i am going to live the rest of my life "knowing" that flickr posted that wee post about personalizing your signature - i've stopped looking in the bathtub.
i've also revoked flickr's blog permission though i'm not sure that is what it was. . .
and since i cannot find a link to Bloggers customer service, i'm going on with my life like everything is right in the world! LOL

Hi Jan!
I'm afraid someone HAS hacked your blog account and/or your email address. They obviously know or have figured out your password, so I would change it right away.That's the only way *I* know of for someone else to post something on your blog. I would scan my computer for spyware and malicious ad software (use Ad Aware or CCleaner) Both are free. And delete the post if you don't know what else might be embedded in the post!

delete it first, then change your passwords. Make your passwords harder. (Letters/numbers).

Hope it don't hurt anything!!
Happy Belated B'day too!!

Oh, I saw that post. Yikes. Hope all is well now. I was just thinking today about all the info we have on here, the sites we give info to to put on our side bars, How Do WE KNOW who they ARE???? I put a map of the visitors to my site on today, but, had that thought.
I hate hackers...why can't they get a hobby?

Oh ..once bloggy got all mixed up and someone was an author on The Primitive Gathering Blog that I did not know..
Bet SHE was as surprised as me.. Then it worked itself out..
I don't see that post..did you remove it??

Hi Jan! Glad you figured that out! I ruined a whole computer when I first began blogging, got feeling too safe and downloaded a blinkie that was a link from another site to this page of free downloads to enhance your blog and infected my computer with over 3,000 viruses within a DAY! Hubby had to redo my computer setup completely, he wasn't very happy with me! I try to be much more careful now, but I think it's pervasive in all computer interactions. YIKES! I think there are things in the bathtub too! Suzie
