Start Some Weirdness, Stop Some Weirdness

I stumbled on the greatest site this week! It’s called Odd Xtreme Paranormal Oddities. How cool is that? Way cool, that’s how. Go there to find out about Adam’s first wife, Madam Blavatsky, and more. You’re welcome.

I got worried about my site being secure — you know MomGoth loves her Sweet Little Baby Angels, and doesn’t want them to get infected with malware when they visit her, so I installed Wordfence. It’s a WordPress program that scans your site’s files and alerts you to any potential nastiness so you can nip it in the bud and block fake commenters and stuff. I’m pleased to say I had very few problems and cleaned them up. No infections on my site, but a vile commenter and a poor sucker who had been hacked.

Speaking of vile commenters, here’s a list of known spammers. Imma check these against my commenters and delete whoever shows up from this list. ha! Take THAT!

And here’s a good post about three common mistakes bloggers make that enable malicious commenting. Imma make sure those are in place here, too.

Combining those two subjects, I’m currently reading a wonderful book called GOOD COP, DEAD COP, about which more when I’ve finished.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Look at that Odd site, pick two subjects, and combine them.




I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
