New Template, But Wow What A Mess

Like I said yesterday, since something was wrong with the blog, I was going to try to change to a totally new template. As you can see I have a totally new template, but everything else was lost, except the posts. I am not sure what I did wrong, because it said it backed it up, guess what it didnt back it up. So now I am playing the fix it game. Melissas Jewelry and Gemstone Blog, is now Melissas Jewelry and Gem blog. I did not lose any contest info, for those with entries. I write them down everytime, someone gets an entry. I can still access the other blog for comments anyway. If anyone buzzed up an article, please leave me a comment, because Buzz does not let me know who buzzed me up, or at least not that I see. So please take credit for your buzzes, on the other blog, so they can count towards contest entries. If you dont remember the other blog you can go to I have to now re enter everything, that I can and that will take some time. I copied the last 3 most recent posts, and will try to get all the tutorials and other great info, transferred over too. They might be in link form, rather than a post I dont know yet. This will probably take me a little time, and I am not sure I will ever do this again. I hope everyone has a great Sunday.

I just attempted to add an RSS feed onto my blog for my top EC droppers but gave up after I couldn't get it figured out so was surprised to see what you encountered! Blogger is supposed to be so easy but it sure proves to be diffcult sometimes doesn't it? Anyway, I like the fall look of your blog!

Thank you, but now I am afraid to change it to anything else. I completely lost all my links on the original blog, just the posts are there, and for some reason it would not fix itself. I will definately check next time, to be sure my data was backed up and not just take their word for it. You now get 1 entry into my Oct contest. Stop by again.

It also happened to me before at Wordpress, Melissa. I changed my template, and baaam!, my links were gone. But since I shifted to Today and not blogging really at Wordpress anymore, I just let it be. Maybe, the same reason why at Today my template has not changed since I started August. Maybe, this happens to us who are not very good with webpage and design? All I know is to blog and post pictures :(

Anyway, I like your background, the pumpkins. Fall is really here and halloween is coming.

Also, I have to sign off with my wordpress account since I do not have blogger account, and Today is not accepted in Open ID :)

I like the new look. very festive.

I had this happen once too, since then I've been too scared to try anything.

three fates: I agree, I am nervous now, but I cant leave it with pumpkins forever. I am going to let it stay right until after Thanksgiving, and then see if my braveness has returned. Thanks for stopping by, you got an entry in the jewelry giveaway.
