It's day five of my foray into the unknown world of being a blogger. When I decided to start this blog I didn't know what I was doing and over the last two of days, I've discovered I know even less.
Last Friday with my basic little blog template and a few added widgets (after I figured out what they were) I was pretty proud of myself. I had myself a blog.
So last night for whatever reason I decided to become adventurous (or I was possessed and delusional) and "enhance" my little blog. I went looking for a new template to load - I wanted a 3 column one (like I would know the difference) with fonts and pretty colours I could pick and choose and change. I found a free template to download and I spent all night (I'm talking like hours and hours) playing around; adding pictures, adding new widgets; adding text and it was looking mighty fine there for about one hour. Then the bottom dropped out. At some point I couldn't make any more changes, I couldn't even load the blogger website..it was like my computer had just taken the link and pouf - made it disappear.
Luckily I can access my work's website from home, so I logged on to see if I could find my blog on the internet through my work access and attempt to resurrect it, after all it was time to get.......Back to Basics.
Thank God I could finally access my f*%...ahh blog and I quickly got busy deleting fonts and colours and the widgets and gidgets and gadgets I'd spent hours copying and perfecting hoping against hope I could restore my blog to it's former simplistic glory.
At midnight I gave up. My blog was visible, but I could not access it from my home internet access.
Tonight after work I spent hours and hours again on this blog and voila here is the end result - my new and improved blog!
Lesson learned: LEAVE WELL ENOUGH ALONE!
I am sure this is how my poor computer was feeling last night. I know I was feeling like my head was spinning!
