Hi to all my blog friends, you will have noticed, (I hope) that I’ve moved, yet again, to a new and more spacious “holtieshouse” this came about because I liked the template I chose for Merle’s “herons nest” blog.
I found that I preferred the sidebar on the left hand side and that this one offered more space in the body for text, so, heeding the advice to save any alterations made in the existing template, I bravely pressed the key for a changeover.
Joy oh joy, everything transferred across beautifully, no wait, only half the bits on my sidebar showed up, after a fair bit of huffing, puffing and searching I found the remainder cowering, as though in terror, at the bottom of my new blog, in the body section.
No problem, thought the optimistic side of me, (the small part that is sane wasn’t so sure) I’ll just paste in the sidebar stuff I saved and all will be right with the world, Yeah!!!
About five hours later all I had managed to achieve was… dah, dah…. I now have nothing at all on my sidebar, so I went to bed and slept the sleep of the totally exhausted and defeated, knowing from past experience, that in my absence the good blogging fairies, and the inscrutable Blogger itself would have come along and fixed all my problems.
Yeah folks, I really am that
naïve stupid, so if there is anyone out there in blogsville who can throw any light on the intricacies of html codes and other like mysteries I would truly love to hear from you, one would have thought the pickle I got myself into when setting up Merles site would have taught me something, (where’s that sane part of my mind when I need it?)
