Spam-MailI discovered something interesting this past week. What provider you get your email through will determine the amount of spam you need to filter.

Part of the process of redesigning my website was to change site hosts. (The biggest reason for the change was security. You may remember when my site was hacked in 2013 and was offline for 2 months?!)

When it moved from HostRocket to Media Temple, my spam decreased by 90%!

WOW! That is a HUGE change.

Being online, entering giveaways or not, means you must protect yourself and your computer. If you don’t know where to start, these Internet Tools are the most popular anti-spyware, anti-virus and anti-spam tools currently available.
