You Have Been Hacked

On Being Hacked

Tracey Tracey's Blog

Well, it happened. This website was “hacked” last week. Some bad guys, somewhere in the world decided to invade my privacy and mess things up. While I am confident none of your personal information was compromised – it’s not that kind of site after all – rectifying the situation (which was done in a timely fashion) cost me both time and money. But most importantly? I feared it would cost me in terms of my reputation. I believe the saying goes something like this … if you don’t have your reputation, what do you have? I had nightmares  about people visiting the site only to see “Warning: Suspected Phishing Site.” But rather than give that too much energy (to do so would only give the aforementioned bad guys even more of my attention) I am trusting that a career of over 30 years is enough for all of you to give me the benefit of the doubt!

I sure hope so, as I think we’re all having a pretty good time here and that’s my goal; good people sharing good times! Thanks for visiting and please, tell your friends that the coast is clear!
