Setting up this blog for someone who was born-too-long-ago-to-be-all-that-computer-literate was a task. What would take my kids an hour took me a week, but I put my big girl panties on and figured it out. I might have cried. I might have drank a bit in the process. I might have thought about shooting myself.
Last week, Blogger changed the layout. The whole thing. Now trying to find your stats, drafts or comments is completely different and it's taking me some kind of time to figure it out. The thing is, it flips back and forth from the new way to the old way all the time. The screen will pop up with the old layout and I AM SO HAPPY until the next time when the screen is completely different and I AM SO SAD.
It used to be that when I checked my blog on the ipad, and found an error, I could flip it from published to a draft and fix it later. Until now. Twice when I've done that, it has deleted the entire post. Poof. Gone. It happened last nite, and I went flying up the stairs to check on our regular computer saying, "Please, oh please, oh please don't be gone." Twas.
So I went to bed and tossed and turned in a tizzy trying to decide if I should get up and rewrite it, but I cannot write when I'm pissed off. That's for emails. Anyhow, still awake at 2:00 a.m., I cursed Blogger and wrote this in my head instead.
At least my bitchiness didn't land in your inbox.
Postscript: I discovered over the weekend that to get rid of random underling, I need to go to my dashboard, click the side bar widget and make sure there is no text decoration. Whatever that means.
I also learned that with a click of a button, I could go back to my old set-up regarding stats, comments..... Mama was right. When one door closes............keep beating the shit out of it and you'll eventually get it open again.
