  1. Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any
    trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I
    ended up losing months of hard work due to no backup.
    Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?


  2. Hi Chasity. So far, I’ve been lucky to not have hackers on my site. One good way to prevent hackers to have a strong password with capital letters, numbers and a symbol. Also, change your password about every three to five months.
