I made a really big mistake.
I started playing with template patterns on Blogger just for fun. I didn't want to change the template created by my blogging friend Alexa. I loved that custom template.
AND SOMEHOW I ACCIDENTALLY SWITCHED TEMPLATES!!!
If I had known that was possible to do accidentally (without having clicked "submit" or "done" I would certainly have made a copy of the html of my old template.
I didn't even know I had done it until late in the day when I went to my blog and the old template was gone!!
I used to have a saved copy of the html on our family computer but that was two computers ago, I guess. We searched the most recent old computer and couldn't find it.
So.... that is why you are seeing the template I have here. And lost with the template is the list of "Blogs I Like" so I don't even have those anymore. To all my blogging friends, if you leave me a comment I will be sure to add you to my new list of "Blogs I Like."
I guess the lesson here is anything can be accidentally erased. I must remember to make copies!!!
