Did I lose other followers?

I received the following from Brian today:

From owningitlog on About Nan Mykel

Was your site hit by the recent hack, you disappeared from my Reader. I had to re-follow you. Please make a back up of all your posts, they are to valuable to be messed with.

Thanks, I’ll ask folks. -Nan

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 83 now.

    You may have lost followers because I thought I followed you earlier but was surprised to see I was not (signed up again).


  2. Brian gave good advice. I don’t do it myself, although I do work things in Microsoft Word first prior to posting a blog. I don’t know how other people work. I emailed you Nan with steps on how to check your followers and who you are following. I doubt you’ve been hacked, am going to your site now to see if one can see anything strange even though I don’t know what to look for. In your address bar it does say ‘secure’ with the green lock in front and it is a https:// address. If it only said http you may have had trouble. Also my McAfee site adviser reckons everything is cool. As I said in the email, it has happened to other bloggers where I was told I disappeared from their Readers. People simply would have to re-follow. I think it’s a WordPress glitch. Not sure how it can happen.
