Stupid blogger!


Ok, so I just have to do a little venting. I was getting bored with my blog background and wanted to spice things up for the holidays. I'd heard horror stories about fellow bloggers losing their family/friends blog list when doing this, so I was super careful as I went about the process. I found a cute background, copied the code into my blogger layout HTML thingy, and previewed it. To my disappointment, the preview didn't save any of my gadgets, including my precious blog list. So sadly, I clicked "clear edits" and made sure I did not save the new code. Phew--or so I thought. But, as it would turn out...

IT ERASED MY WHOLE STUPID BLOG LIST ANYWAY! ALL 81 OF THEM!

Thankfully, I prepared for the worst and made a screen shot of all the names on the list beforehand. But now I have to go through for every single name and track down the URL, and enter it in again.

I am grateful for Blogger's free services that help me stay in touch with my favorite people, but this made me so angry! Especially since I never even saved any changes!

Ok, I feel bad having a negative post around the holiday season, but I just couldn't help myself. Please don't judge me. :) Judge Blogger. :) Haha. Happy holidays, everybody! A more cheerful post is hopefully on deck for next time!

Thanks, Erin, for recommending the Cutest Blog on the Block--totally using them from now on instead of Pyzam!

Yeah....that's why I have that stupid boring background on mine. I'm too affraid of changing it now because every time I do it erases everything. Anyway, you are so cute Kathryn! I love you happy attitude! I'm going to be very sad when you guys leave!

What a bummers. I am sorry.

In the future if you go through thecutestblogontheblock.com instead of Pyzam it won't mess up your widgets or, if you are feeling particularly inspired you can always make your own.

I have done that before, too! It's horrible! I thought I would leave you a comment though so it would be easier to add us to your list. Hope you have a great Christmas!

I'm having blogger issues too! I can't post a picture, it won't let me upload them. I get so angry that I just walk away and forget it. but now I'm really mad because it's been a week...any ideas?

The same thing happened to me when I used Pyzam.. I also use cutest blog on the block.. works way better!! How have you been feeling lately?? Adam came over to fix something yesterday and said the ward was thinking about doing some kind of Christmas dinner with all those who are going to be here.. I think thats a GREAT idea!! We should all def. do it.

That happened to me a few times too before. So what I do when I change the background is I go through everyone's blog and write down their URL beforehand, so later you can just put them in again.

I'm SO sorry! That is really bad!! I want to make all my contacts show when they last posted but you have to re-enter them all in again. Oh, I keep forgetting to ask you if you went out the day after Thanksgiving?
