My Website got Hacked

Hey Gratisouls!! How are you guys doing? Sorry for being MIA (missing in action) for quite a few days now. If anybody missed me, then here I am!! And I missed writing too!!

So, this blog will be a short comeback kind of a piece with one surprise element. So, keep reading until the end!

Hackers Hacked Gratisoul

Hacked Account

So, my website got hacked by some Chinese hackers and I got really tensed as to how will I manage to get back on track again and what will happen to all my content? Will it get all erased or will I ever be able to get my account back? I had no clue.

I was feeling kind of nervous and was worried because it was my 1-2 years of hard work that I put into this website and it is very close to my heart as I have poured my emotions out in each and every blog. So, I was clueless about when this issue will get resolved.

I asked for Help


My cousin brother is a tech guy so I asked him to help me and he told me where the issue was. Then I consulted one of the web developers in my contacts and asked him to resolve this issue.

It took two weeks but finally, I got my website back!! And within all this period, I started a new job too as a food safety auditor again.

New Phase after Hacked account


Since my previous job experience didn’t go well, I was a bit reluctant about this one too. Because as they say, we carry the scars of our past with us. So, I was a bit nervous if that negative phase will return again or not.

But, luckily I found good people, good work here and I am pretty satisfied right now. But soon they’ll be shifting to a faraway place from my home, so I guess I’ll have to hunt for yet another job again but it doesn’t matter, because it is just a phase.

I know once I’ll find my dream work, then there’ll be no looking back. So, till then I’ll do whatever that’s in my hands and will not stress about anything which I can’t control.

Now enough about me. What are you all up to? I want to know that in the comments below!!

Since I am talking about life and its phases, I have written a new blog for The Times of India’s website again! Follow the link to this blog to read about how much we undervalue our lives.

I was wondering what happened to you but I figured you were on vacation. So sorry you had to go through all of that. Sounds very stressful! But it sounds like you have it all cleared up so that’s good.

I have found several writing opportunites. I am looking into starting either a blog or website focusing on my own inspirational/motivational writing with the hope of monetizing it. I also began working with a new client for my dog sitting business. Had a minor issue over the times when I would come over to walk the dog but we got it all figured out this afternoon so we should be ok now.
