A blog follower is harassing me and I could use some help.

  1. Hi there, I'm a mom of three little kids. A few weeks ago I started getting harassing phone calls. 60 in one weekend, believe it or not. But he continues to call me frequently. Mostly hang-ups when I'm not home, but when I answer he calls me, "honey," tells me he wants to see me, asks me for kisses and is generally creepy. This guy has been calling me for several weeks now and I've noticed that his calls spike when I post a blog. I already have a detective at my local police department working on digging up this guy's number (which is blocked), but I'm wondering if you can do anything to help me point this man out. He called this morning to wish me a happy mother's day (ew). But he started dialing last night at 5:48pm, 5/11/2013. I posted my mother's day blog around 4:45pm (or so). Could you send me a list of email addresses that hit my blog between 4:30pm and 5:50pm on 5/11/2013? That'd be incredibly helpful. I'll pass it along to the detective handling my case here in Winchester, Mass. Thank you so much. Peace!

    The blog I need help with is bringingupbuddhas.com.

    Could you send me a list of email addresses that hit my blog between 4:30pm and 5:50pm on 5/11/2013?

    That's not possible without court order.

    NOTE: you posted an email address on your blog that spam bots and trolls can use. Rather than doing that you can post a secure contact form. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact-form/

    No one can locate you or even know who you are unless you provide the information to do so online and you did that on your blogspot blog. You even provided images of places on the same street you live on.

    I would change my phone number to an unlisted phone number and I would not reveal that phone number to anyone but close friends and family. You're welcome and best wishes.
