You might think that blogs are just innocent pages that can serve as your online diary. No one really wants to attack your page. The truth is that blogs are vulnerable to attacks. There are a lot of ways for people to make money out of attacking your page.
To begin with, they might penetrate your personal information if they were able to successfully hack your page. It is also possible that they take the entire page down and remove the information you have published forever.
There are other bloggers out there who don’t want you to succeed. Hence, they will do everything possible to ensure that your blog does not become popular. Take note that popular blogs are money making machines. They attract a lot of advertisers.
Asking guests to contribute to the blog is also great especially if you can’t update the page all the time. Just make sure you don’t make them admins of the page. Otherwise, you have exposed yourself to potential hackers. If more people can take control of the page, it becomes more susceptible to hackers.
This only means that you need to be careful in using the blog. Try to update your WordPress page if you are using this hosting site. Avoid plugins that may bring viruses to your page.
