Apologies to my readers

Dear loyal readers of abodyofhope blog,

Yesterday morning I was notified of a spike in the page’s stats.

Nice, right? Wrong.

I later found out that several of my unfinished drafts were published to the live page without my knowledge.

If you follow abodyofhope and received several email updates yesterday, those articles were totally rogue works that I never intended to publish.

I want you to know firstly that your emails are secure. You recieved the automated emails only because my blog was updated. They are programmed by WordPress, and nothing there was compromised.

I’m still unsure how my blog’s interface was disturbed, however. Was it a glitch or a hack?

In 5 years of managing this page, nothing like this has ever occurred (yes, that’s an anniversary! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŽ‰).

To be honest with you, I was mortified yesterday morning.

The unfinished drafts you read were basically pages from my diary. I have struggled to write with clarity for the last year, which has lead to fewer updates here on the page. I still write on a weekly basis with the hope of publishing to the blog, so I have accumulated quite an archive of drafts. Yesterday you had a peek into about 7 of my attempts.

I shared a post regarding the incident on Facebook. To my surprise, I was met with several messages from regular readers who were so generous and encouraging.

They reminded me that I can trust you all. I can share my heart here even if it comes in a rough or raw package because you are interacting openly with me and with these stories– not sitting in judgment of me from a distance.

From what I gather, you enjoyed the articles, and someone said the content even helped them in some way.

Whether you read the leaked pieces or not, I want to thank you for following, for inspiring me with your stories and with your comments over the years, and for being thoughtful loyal readers whom I can trust with even the most sensitive topics. Will you please forgive me for the lack of writing? I will update you soon with all the new things I have been working on.

Once again, thank you so much for reading and take good care,

Mary

About abodyofhope

I do not know why it is that we must wade through tragic circumstances to find truth. We nearly drown! But under the water, there are pearls. I hope in writing this blog, more will come to the surface. Over the past 15 years living with chronic pain, patient advocacy has had a powerful effect on my life through meeting so many remarkable teens, women and men: SURVIVORS. These individuals are HOPE personified. I wish to honor them in the same spirit they have encouraged me to press on. Eight years ago, I became bed-bound from a variety of secondary chronic illnesses. A procedure meant to help the pain condition I had been managing for several years- went bust #BIGTIME. Over the years, my entire life has changed. I have changed, but I am still striving to live my best life possible. Along with sharing inspiring pieces about spiritual wellness and finding quality of life inside of ongoing illness, I also share health research, awareness information, poetry, memes, art, and this blog is also an attempt to put my own pieces back together. Welcome to A Body of Hope, and thank you for visiting. [Complex Regional Pain Syndrome/ RSD, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), Dysautonomia, Chronic Intractable Migraine, Cluster headache, Trigeminal Neuralgia, Occipital Neuralgia, Hypersensitivity to Sound & Light, Fibro, CFS/ME, Cerebrospinal Fluid Imbalance......blah, blah, blah] >>> P.S. My headgear is protective for pain. I just rock it hard ;)

  1. Hey sweetie, I’m off email right now due to staycation till Tuesday but when I saw all those posts I thought either you got help to publish all at once or hoarding them till you could publish all at once. More the latter but as always, they are good. I love all your serif, darling. You are so true. I’m sure you felt so bad for a while, I know I’d have a few pieces in my drafts that I judged too raw to send, but I’m glad you did. Brave not prefect (happens to be the super great book I’m listening to right now, I think you’d like it).
    I’d come here for your real emotions, I’d go elsewhere if I didn’t want the truth lol there’s plenty of make you feel good in a fake way blogs out there after all.
    You keep up the good work.
    I really think there must have been a glitch by the way, what hacker would bust in and publish women journals for fun when they could make money elsewhere? ๐Ÿ˜‰ so I’d just check if it’s been an issue with word press.
    Love ya

  2. I had the same thing happen. Thankfully I caught right away, but that didn’t stop notifications. So frustrating!

  3. Hi Mary,
    I recently had that happen with a scheduled draft too! I was shocked it was a day early & I still had much tweaking to do!
    Bless you,
    Jennifer
