Momo, Labor of Love and Red Flags
Uh-oh, she's circling closer. Better hurry up and get this finished.
Today is "Granny" Momo's Birthday/Gotcha Day and she's having a weekend party at her place. She will make a donation to the Cat Protection Society for each visitor. So stop by and leave a comment to help the CPS.
Momo is at least 14 years old, so let's help her celebrate in style. Visit her at the Meow blog.
This is also Labor of Love for ML (of the Cat Blogosphere and Missy Blue Eyes' blog) weekend, so stop by and let her know you appreciate all she does.
There have been a number of blogs red flagged and blocked lately. If you see Reported Attack Page, click on "Why was this page blocked?" in the red banner. This will explain the problem. Basically, one or more blogs were hacked and distributing malware and any blog with a blogroll linked to the hacked blog also gets red flagged. Deleting the link should solve the problem but a number of us have just deleted our blogrolls at least temporarily.
After deleting the link, clear your cache (we would delete cookies too) and then go to your own blog as a visitor. If the red flag is still there, you will need to go to your dashboard to webmaster tools and let Blogger know so they can check and clear the red flag.
FYI, it's a whole lot easier to contact a blocked blog if other bloggers have your email address since your comments are blocked too. We found a means to leave a comment on a red flagged blog without actually visiting there but received no response. Folks can't let you know there's a problem if they can't contact you. So pretend you're old and feeble and need let others know how to check on you in an emergency.
