My blog was hacked over the weekend, bringing the server down – which includes my web site, of course. Apparently somewhere , on some file, the permissions were set to 777, making it possible for somebody to get in and do their worst. You might want to look over your own site and/or blog for this same issue. It could save you a lot of grief.
I ended up moving to a new host – something I’d been considering for some time, but my paranoia of a move affecting my rankings, etc – coupled with laziness – put it off until now. The past couple days were spent redoing things. I had to even rebuild this blog. But I find that these setbacks are a blessing in disguise. They force me to clear the decks and make improvements.
I took a break today from the deck cleaning to walk Nigel (my dog) down to the beach. I often forget to take advantage of where I live. Being glued to a computer monitor has a way of doing that.
We came upon the Hawaiian music/hula show they put on every night down there. The performers face the water with the audience sitting on the grass and, beyond that, the beach. Nigel and I stood behind the musicians, which gave us a view of the waning sunset. It’s often strange to think that there are people who wait for that sunset every evening just to see it. And record it. Yet I miss most of them and I live 2 blocks away.
I’m going to start injecting some more of Hawaii business and life into this blog, along with the SEO/SEM/Marketing. I hope you’ll enjoy it.
