Strange Pop Up Appears On Blog

    I have been noticing lately that a strange pop-up appears on my blog in the upper left hand corner of the main page and it has a lot of words in it but the basic beginnings are something like this:

    "American Liberal Times.com/public.api/connect/? action . . . blah . . . blah . . . blah . . . and sometimes something appears inside the pop up telling me that the certificate for my blog is this or that and that the server may be trying to trick me and do I wish to continue. . . . blah blah blah.

    Is this something I should be concerned about and is there something I am supposed to do because of it?

    Does this mean that people aren't able to read my blog or something like that?

    I checked the bots on Google and my site hasn't been banned or anything so it is a complete mystery to me because this pop up thing hasn't always been there. It is something that just started happening a few weeks ago.

    I guess I am paying $99 a year for the site or something on a premium package that I bought . . . does that have anything to do with it?

    Anyone who can help me I will really appreciate hearing what you have to say. Yes, I will be sincerely grateful if you can help me out with this one.

    My blog is:
    American Liberal Times
    http://americanliberaltimes.com

    The blog I need help with is americanliberaltimes.com.
