How many times has WordPress been hacked?


Hello, this is TheresaJewel and I just deleted a second “blog post” that was pure spam. It was supposedly written to ask you for donations by Dr. Nguyen Duc Kien, the Chairman of the Hanoi FC Vietnam. According to Wikipedia, Dr. Kien does exist, but why is he asking for funding when he has a “personal fortune estimated at over $90 million US dollars“?

I looked through a few of the proposed links and found this junk posted on the blog(s) of another person or two in addition to both of mine.

How do people keep hacking WordPress? What is it about WordPress that allows such easy access? I’m 99.9% sure no person figured out my new password, because I changed it to something I need to look up every time I sign in.

I decided to create a poll. This is for anyone with a blog, but I definitely want to hear from all WordPress users.

After you vote, I would love to hear from anyone who can tell me how to stop this. If I can’t stop it, I may go back to Blogger or my Weebly.com site.

Thank you for your advice.

HubPages information needed


I’m thinking about writing for HubPages, but I want all the information I can find before I make this decision. I had a terrible experience writing articles for Examiner.com as Evansville Genealogy Examiner and as Evansville Pets Examiner. With them, it took me three years to earn the minimum payout of $10!

I need to know, does anyone here writes for HubPages? If yes, please leave a reply or send an e-mail to jewel(dot)ammons@gmail(dot)com answering the following questions?

  • Do you make money on every post?
  • If yes, how much do you personally make for each piece of content? What is your monthly average from GoogleAds and other advertising?
  • If no, what draws you to HubPages? Does what you’re earning from advertising make it worthwhile?
  • If you write for HubPages and another organization, which do you recommend for a writer with three years of publishing experience who wants to make a decent amount of money ($6 or more) per post?

Thank you all for any assistance you can give me. I’m also open to your suggestions of where to publish my writing whether non-fiction or fiction. I’m currently working on several short stories and 2-3 novels in the fiction department.

Bye for now.
