Hacked with a redirect! Yikes!

I've been very busy this summer and have neglected this poor blog.  Today I found out that it had somehow been hacked and was automatically redirecting to a suspicious site! Yikes!  To make matters worse, I couldn't even get into the "settings" of my blog to investigate. It would just redirect whenever I tried.  A few minutes of research led me to this helpful post:  http://redleg-redleg.blogspot.com/2011/01/redirect-to-malicious-site.html

I was able to get into the "recent comments" widget and sure enough there was the malicious code that had taken control of my site. Deleted it and everything seems to be back to normal?  If anyone notices anything "off", please drop me a line asap.  This was very disconcerting to say the least. But hey, maybe it will make me stay more on top of my blogging!  ;)
