No, I wasn’t hacked

(aka my bad for sending you a sample template by email)

So, if you’re wondering whether or not my blog was hacked, the answer is no. My apologies for sending you latin by email. I was making some updates and playing around with the look and feel of my website. In doing so, I inadvertently published a sample template, which went out to all of my subscribers. While I quickly deleted the post, it was already too late.

I appreciate the concern (and again, my apologies) but I can promise you my website is totally secure. It even has a little padlock (similar to the necklace I wore in high school) next to the website url so you can feel doubly (is that a word?) secure when visiting. I had to pay extra for that padlock and peace of mind about six months ago.

On that note, if you want to check out the new look and feel, just type in in your browser and BAM! there you go. I’ll be making more changes in the near future because that’s what I do — I get bored with things and need to make a change — but I should not, hopefully, ideally inadvertently send you an email again. *Fingers crossed. Please don’t unsubscribe. I’m only human.*

If you haven’t visited the site in a while and want to catch up on some reading material, here are a few links I feel need a little more loving in terms of readership. They are about some of the people that have meant the most to me in my life:

Lastly, while I made a goof, I hope the new changes (which look cooler on a laptop by the way) make the site a bit easier to read and navigate.
