New Address

I'm moving to
Yoga Chickie on Wordpress. I really liked Blogger until this week, when readers started getting "malware" warnings when trying to access my blog. I don't know if the problem is Blogger, or Blogger as it interfaces (for lack of a better word) with Google. But I find this malware thing a bit distasteful. So....I'll be transitioning. For now, you can find me there AND here.

Hi Lauren
your bla bla bla post was funny. hey, i went thru the same. you may want to wait a bit. this service provider is good for images and pictures. what may be happening to you happened to me 2 years ago. i removed the widgets, one by one, until i found which one was the culprit. in my case it was the counter widget. the site that provided it got infested with malware, so every time the site loaded, it loaded pop unders and pop overs. before you move to the other service provider, do you want to give a try to removing some widgets? (it's the third party widgets, not the ones the service provider offers in their layout page.) i forget the name of the free counter that had the malware, but it was not statcounter.
cheers,
Arturo

OK, I've removed almost every widget except archives and followers. I changed my template. Let's see what happens...

Hi Lauren
you may want to ask people who reported receiving malware and popunders when reading your posts if the problem went away. what happens is that the providers of widgets sometimes get infested with the code and pass it unwittingly to others. i went through my hotlinks in my posts and removed some of them, but found that the problem was really with the free visitor's counter widget. i don't remember who published it. i haven't had a problem since.
cheers,
Arturo
