Welcome to Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Sadly, I have to deliver some very sad news.
One week ago my website was hacked and taken over. Thankfully Go Daddy were able to retrieve my site, but my new security won’t let me use the Linky Tool. We have tried a hundred times and even phoned the security company in America. *saddest face*
MICHELE – PEPI’S MOM: it is with great sadness that I have to announce Pepi cannot continue hosting his loved Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.
We began hosting the hop after it was passed to us from CokieTheCat, and we have loved it dearly. I dearly wanted to continue with Pepi’s hop and did not want to have to end it.
I couldn’t say anything about it last week because we had malware sweeps and security scans working for days. I had to spend close to $1,000 to secure the site and remove the malware attacks.
I have lost all the blog hop entries, and only have the comments remaining. Pepi will be able to enter blog hops, but not host them. We have asked Brian, from Brian’s Home if he would like to inherit running the hop, and thankfully he has accepted!
With Pepi over the Rainbow Bridge, it’s like losing another part of him, and its kicked off a new wave of grieving in me, leaving me very sad.
I wish to thank everyone who took part and supported us over all these years, even when we were traveling and couldn’t leave any comments for weeks. This is a terribly sad post for me and one I did not want to have to make.
Brian will do a wonderful job, so please don’t forget to go to his website next week. He will be a natural and I know everyone will support him. Thankfully Pepi can still participate in blog hops, so you’ll still see him pop up in different hops, in the crowd, especially Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you again.
You guys are the greatest and I love you all very much.
Michele and Pepi *waves paw* :=o)
