Stuck

I don't know how I do it - - I guess I'm just special.   But everytime I try to change my background, I mess up.   I had it just the way I wanted it . . . it was a beautiful red and black background, with just a hint of Christmas.  Just a hint - - in respect of those of you who think it's too early for Christmas backgrounds.   That's just the kind of person I am.   Then, . . . well, then I did something - - I don't know what - - and POOF! - - the beautiful red is gone.   I'm so sad.  But.  I am not going to touch it again.   I don't want to totally disappear from the face of blogoville, which is probably what would happen if I tried to get it back.   And then you'd never see me again.  And some of you might wonder if my absence was due to the aliens.  Although now there is so much talk of zombies.   Maybe zombies are really aliens in disguise??

Anyway . . . bottomline - - I am stuck (and so are you) with my blog the way it is.

  5. Just a thought, go in and double check the edit html, it may not have saved.

  8. And this is why I will never ditch my blueish background. I'm way too scared of screwing things up royally! I'm sure there's someone who can help you with it. Were you using one of Blogger's templates?

    1. My niece fixed it the last time I screwed up. I think she's ignoring my pleas for help this time around! haha

  9. Ha-ha. Glad that never happens to me. (Only every time I "mess around" with my blog. Must be Gremlins. Or Zombies?)I like the font, though-- cute!

  10. If you ever need help, I don't know much, but I can try. :) And if you can't resist and what to mess with it again, just back up your blog. That means you save it (in codes and everything) with the press of a button. You save it on your computer and if anything happens, you just upload that back on the internet and boom, the blog is back to where it was before you messed with it. :)

    2. It was so easy to change, though. That's what I don't get. It was easy to change and it looked great - - then it was gone! But, Larissa, you said the magic words - - "if you ever need help . . ." HELP!!! :)

    3. Haha! What would you like done?

    4. I just want the background back the way it was before I messed it up! haha. Think you can help me with that, sweet Larissa??!

    5. Sure! Do you have the background (image you want) saved to your computer?

      Delete
    6. How do you want me to do this? Should I comment here step by step?

    7. Larissa, do you have an email????

    1. I'm glad you like it, Andrea, because it is probably going to be this way FOREVER!

  12. I enjoy and admire the visual creativity of many of the blogs 'out there'. And yet, it is always the words and the sentiments which sit behind them that will impact me the most.
