My Youtube account was recently hacked into. Slowly working things back up!


1,377 views

Among the million other things I was trying to keep hold of with life (ironically, while away from social media), my YouTube account got hacked a couple months ago by some Bitcoin weirdos. It took a bit of initial panic and a bit of work to get things back up. 

 

If anybody's interested, you may find the details of the case here:

 

Youtube Account was hacked & then permanently deleted(all in a day??)! HELP. - YouTube Community (google.com)

 

Anyways, I'm glad things are finally back up but it should take a few more months for the activity to get back up like before it was hacked. 

 

If you have some time, do give the channel a look and lemme know if you find something odd. If you are checking out the music for the first time, would love to hear your thoughts! :)

Sorry to hear that Mahesh. It's very dispiriting when a) a complete b*stard messes with your stuff for absolutely no reason, and b) you have to expend considerable time and energy rebuilding.

 

We all get caught up with maintaining presence in the virtual world, but it's all an illusion ready to disintegrate.  I hope you can avoid becoming too disillusioned, angry and frustrated.  You can still go out with your acoustic guitar, put your heart and soul into playing/singing your songs, and entertain others.

 

Best wishes,

Greg

Thank you, Greg! I do have (like many other artists) a love hate relationship with social media. It's something I don't like having any kind of spotlight on during my days. At the same time, it is something that I understand to be a valuable asset in building an audience base. So it was quite a shock when I first received a message by Youtube that my channel had been permanently banned and my email ID blacklisted. Only after further inspection, I realized that I was hacked and whatever they did led to the ban.

You said it bud. I performed at a house concert last weekend. It felt good! 

 

Much thanks for your kind words and thoughts.
