    The blog I need help with is emilyp711.wordpress.com.

    I don’t know. Click the link in the warning message and read what it states please.

    P.S. In many cases this is a result of linking to images.

    This is what the warning says

    Google Chrome has blocked access to this page on emilyp711.wordpress.com.
    Content from archigalle.com, a known malware distributor, has been inserted into this web page. Visiting this page now is very likely to infect your computer with malware.

    As justjennifer says, the issue is your site’s links to archigalle.com.

    You’ll need to locate any references to archigalle.com on your site and remove them. For example, you’re hotlinking to an Ikea image on archigalle.com in this post:

    Once you eliminate all links/hotlinks to archigalle.com, the malware warning should go away.
