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! 😊🎉).
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,
