Alison Can Read Feature & Follow 


This is the day of the week where we get to know each other better by answering a question devised by our lovely hostesses Parajunkee & Alisoncanread. Sounds like GFC is eventually going away..  so you may want to follow by email or bloglovin/feedly (I love both). And now for this week's question....


Follow on Bloglovin

Q. Share something about you've learned about book blogging or just blogging in general in the past month?

A.  In the past month huh?  Well I had a lot of drama with comments and my blog template and then I had drama with my blog being marked as spam!   For real you guys need to read those posts.  What I have learned that I can pass onto others is that you should go to McAfee and make sure your blog is NOT marked as malicious.  The scary thing is that it might be and you don't even know it! 

I look forward to reading everyone's comments this week for the Follow Me Friday question.  I love to learn new things about blogging.   Leave a link to yours!

  1. I didn't know anything about that McAfee situation. I definitely want to read that post and make sure my blog is not on there. Great response. I'm now following you on bloglovin'!

    1. Yea.. who knew that your blog could be marked for spam? I haven't even heard of that before until it happened to me!

  2. I totally agree, I made a point of having my blog verified by McAfee and Norton. If you haven't done so, claim ownership and have it verified. Here is Norton's site, http://safeweb.norton.com/help/site_owners. Also if you use pinterest have that verified too. https://en.help.pinterest.com/home.

  4. Ok I missed that McAfee post and just went back to read it. thanks so much for sharing - I immediately checked my site and while waiting for the results I got so nervous! I just didn't want to have anything to worry about - thankfully I'm clear. Sigh of relief! Great advice!!

  5. The McAlfee post was great and I did do this after reading your post. But what was the drama with comments? I must have missed that.

    1. I think if your blog isn't spam or porn google will let you get it back.

    1. I am so glad I can spread the word to people. I would've never known if someone else hadn't told me.

  9. Angela maybe consider self hosting + domain. I've been marked as spam by Blogger before and it's terrible for the few days that you don't know if your going to get your blog back :(
