I gotta bug on a horse!
A Trojan horse, that is. All nice to look at and presented as a gift, but ... ooh, what was inside was SO not nice at all.
Let me explain.
If you had tried to visit my blog recently, you would have been redirected to some unknown suspicious site.
I fretted over what to do about this. I am so not a techie. Should I just start over? Throw in the towel? Consider this a bloggie vacay ... an extended one at that?!
I tooled through the blogger forums, finding nothing helpful ... until, "Hark!" I discovered what was the matter ... and, bloggie friends, (praise the Lord!!!), it was so simple that I was able to fix it all by my un-techie self!!!
Some outside gadgets are loaded with a bug that redirects traffic to your blog elsewhere. Often, these bugs are time-delayed ... not activating for days, weeks, even MONTHS after installation. All I had to do was sort through my gadgets ... particularly those NOT from Blogger ... and according to the info I read, when I clicked on the infected gadget, it would immediately redirect me ... and that would be confirmation that this was the bug that had to DIE ... errr ... be deleted.
Soooooo, I came back to my dashboard and looked at my layout. The first gadget that I clicked on was a blinky clock that I'd added a while ago (a month maybe?) ... and moments after opening it, I was redirected, soooo ... I thought, "SCORE!!! I've found the Trojan horse!"
And I KILLED ... errr ... deleted that sucker!!!
And I am BACK in the saddle ... my OWN saddle (not the Trojan horses)!
