The Blog-Mistress Is Semi-Sane Again……

0 0 sane

Okay Kiddies; I am still up to my yaya in work here, but I recovered from my fit of *Pique* the other day, and I actually did some tinkering with one of the new templates, discovering I can strip it to nothing and reinsert all my gawdies and goodies.

So! When I go to do this (and it will not be this week, or maybe even next) I will temporarily take the blog off-line so I can do it slowly, with ease, (or freaking out, running in circles and screaming…..much more likely!) and I do anticipate it taking me a couple of days. I want to get it how I want it all at once before I put it back live. You know I have control issues….LOL!!!!

Being less than a Mental Ninja in this area, SOME of you may get pleas of desperation for HELP!!! Just be prepared, and have your nerve tonic handy~~whatever form you prefer. ;-)

I really do not handle change well. Obviously. OMG.

This should be interesting……..

Two things to say to you:

2. Scream if you need help
(and read the tutorials on my Computery blog).

The main thing is NOT to change template, as this will knock out any customisations (eg: signature, etc) as they are in the html - and this will change if you choose a new template. You do get to keep your widgets, though, and I can always reinstall your signature for you if you need me to.

Let me know soon as you've done it - can't wait to see it!

OMG Susie---I can scream loud enought hat you would hear me without phone or computer! LOL!!!
I may have to have the siggy reinstalled.....that is the only thing I can see being an issue.
The BG is just installed thru an HTML box.....(Idiot Box)
The rest of it? Well, we'll see what happens! ;)

Think of the exercise you'll get running in circles and screaming. I need to get more exercise. I think I'll change my blog, too! ;) Goforit, sista. Keep the wine at the ready! xoxox!! Pam

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Oh yes Pam---believe me---there WILL BE WINE.
But I think for afterwards, when I am having my nervous breakdown.....hahahaha!!!


audrey said...

You'll do fine, Anne. I have faith in you.
Now, when I get around to making changes to MY Blog, everyone is going to need wine because I am going to need help BIG TIME!! While you are all drinking wine, I'll be drinking Black Russians ~ my favorite!
Let's all be prepared.

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Audrey, I have a feeling the stores that sell adult libations will have a sudden surge in their profit margin.....LOL!!!
I was NOT---repeat NOT---cut out to be a geek.
Wimp? Yes. ;)


Deborah said...

Serious control issues. I love Pam's positive outlook on it! Getting exercise indeed! Luckily, for my first child I was given a very headstrong one who completely took away and illusion of having control over my life! **blows kisses** Deb

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Well Deb,

I have a husband of 25 years and three parakeets.
Maybe that is why I grasp so tightly to the blog!!! It's the only thing that is totally *mine* much as Blogger lets it be mine....hahaha!!!


*Ulrike* said...

Oh boy, I think I'll let you try it first before I make a decision with mine. Poor hubby has had to listen to my whining for the past few days with this blogger thing I don't think he could handle much more. Let's put it this way I'd be outside with the dog or maybe in the garden house.....hmmm, I wonder if that is why I got it!
Take Care,

Robbie said...

You're making me afraid to do anything to my blog! so with will stay as is! Enjoy the 'wine' Glad you are giving it a 'go'!

Jan said...

Good luck! Glad you aren't giving up on blogging, you would be sorely missed. I'll add to the wine fund! if that will help keep you blogging.
In the mean time, I shall keep my ear plugs handy, in case I hear screams coming from the east;-)

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

The screams have died down Jan! I think I am at the whimpering stage now---fairly happy with what I did. Still may strip more.
The tutorial links are going to be slow to fill in---that may be months in the making.....
Now where is my BEER???? :0


Terra said...

I am confident to say that all will be well. A bit of screaming, crying and wailing and then, voila, a new cute blog just the way that you want it.

Manon Doyle said...

I probably won't be able to help....oh ya...I can help.... I'll send you lots of wine!!! xo

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

This was what I was hoping to get back to Terra, and believe me, I have had my stress for the day.
I think I am heading for the Beer Fridge for some self administered anesthetic.....*ahem* ;)


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Manon!!!

I've done what I wanted---let's just share wine! (and finger paint too....heeheehee!!!!)
I am NOT, in any way shape or form, cut out for this tweaking of the blogs....NO.

The Wreck

Ces said...

You are so funny! I am just glad you are still blogging. Love your avatar on FB! Tsup!

Magpie's Mumblings said...

Whew! I'm very glad indeed to see that all our 'wine-ing' has caused you to reconsider. Keeping fingers crossed that the new venture bears fruition with a minimum of fuss (cause the profit margins in the wine and beer companies are high enough!)

Marie S said...

Is there something in the air??
There are so many going through something right now.
Hang in there.
Love and hugs dear one.
