Welcome to The Blog Report

I'm so glad you stopped by and hope you find this blog an interesting read. I've been blogging since April of 2006, currently the author of six public and two private blogs. In the beginning I knew absolutely nothing about blogging. Over the years through trial and error, frustration and elation, and a few tears I've learned a lot. However, the learning process when it comes to blogging continues to evolve. Here you will find a hodge podge of my blogging experiences, useful codes and how-tos, sprinkled liberally with my opinions. Enjoy!

Be Careful What Widgets You Use

I was doing a bit of digging around on a Blogger issue then got sidetracked reading some of the other rather interesting information in the help files.  Be very, very careful about what widgets you use on your blog.    Some of those cute widgets might not be as cute as you think!  There are reports of malicious redirects via widgets as well as malware.   As with any third party script be sure you trust the source before adding a widget to your blog.  If you are using the Blogger platform for blogging take a few minutes to browse through the help forum.  Some of the threads are real eye openers!
