My blog was down for a while – about two months. I tried to modify how it looked and ended up destroying any semblance of order. Comments became posts, posts became headers, and formatting was all over the place. After several days of trying to repair what I’d done, I decided to just scrap it, and start anew. So bit by bit I’ve been rebuilding and moving posts, comments, and links. I think I just about have it sorted out.

Lesson learned: No messing with blogger. I clearly don't have the skills to tackle this vicious beast.

I tried to change my blog once. Thank goodness for the "restore defaults" button.

Restore defaults!?? Okay, I need to pay more attention to buttons. I had to scour the net to find the blog template that I used, then I spent weeks just reformatting stuff. Next time I'll go for the "restore defaults" button. ... actually, if it happens again, I might just turn up at Word Press.

That's a bummer. I wish there was back-up for blogs so if something goes haywire you can access your saved storage. It looks great though!

Nice to see you back. How's things on the home front?

Steven Whibley said...

Thanks E.R. King :)

JeffO - Home's good. The little guy has decided that he doesn't need to sleep anymore though. I've become convinced he's utilizing some kind of sleep-deprivation technique to ware me down so that he can inflict his will on me. That, or the lack of sleep has made me paranoid.

Oh, what a nightmare. That sounds like something that would happen to me, so thanks for the heads up. I'll leave well enough alone. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Love the idea of Valdermort going up against Vader!

Oh, great! This scares me as I've considered doing some things to mine.

I'd like to change mine, but I'm a bit intimidated by all things technical. :)

Aww, man! That sucks. Glad to see you back, though. We missed you around here. How's the baby? :)

Angie Paxton said...

Ahh, what a nightmare! Glad to see you got things sorted out though.

Blogger can definitely be moody and uncooperative! Like me at certain times of the month, haha. Sometimes it's good to start fresh, though. :)
