A Word of Advice

and a word to the wise. Last night, I was posting to my blog, and I thought I'd lost it all. I was sick overnight. I was so sick about it that I just went to bed on it and got up to fix it very easily this morning. My sidebar was fine and situated where it was supposed to be, but my recent posts were clear at the bottom and all screwed up.

I didn't panic, as I had copied and pasted my template just a few days ago, and all my posts were still intact when I went to my control page to "edit posts." That's why I could go to bed and sleep. It was all still there, but I had to figure out how to get it back together as it was originally. I discovered I'd made a little mistake in adding an image, and it really fouled up the works. When I saw it, I immediately recognized the cure, and sure enough; VOILA..... I'm back in business today.

So, if you gals haven't done so lately, back up your blog in whatever fashion you do so, and when/if things go awry, you won't be panicked and are only a step away from restoration.

I can't tell you how much I panic over my blog too. You work so hard to get the right look. The other day my header wasn't showing up. That was about the 27th one I made. It sounds like a lot of work, but after each one I made, I got a little better and got the look I wanted.
What happened when my entries were 'all lined up' was that something in the side bar was too long and knocked out the stuff in the center.
I do have the html for my blog saved.
