Meltdown!

I accidentally deleted my whole blogger template Tuesday! It is chilling indeed to gape a screen full of machine code where your blog used to be. I am so glad I had followed Clare Eats’s advice and backed up my template to a text file. Of course, I had not been updating my backup nearly often enough, so stuff is missing. If I used to link to you and do so no more it is not because I am in an unprovoked huff. Please drop me a comment to help me spackle up the virtual cracks.

I am so glad that my advice was helpful to you!

That makes me so happy that you don't have to completly rebuild your template :) *phew*

Oy! That reminds me how glad I was to leave Blogger/Blogspot, where archives and comments can vanish even if you don't do anything wrong. I'm just glad the damage wasn't worse, and if you decide to spring for your own domain, I'll be glad to recommend a hosting service!

Happy to see that order has been restored. I was nervous for a while there (and nothing of mine is backed up, yikes!).

Clare eats and mzn, Thanks for your kind words. "yikes" and "phew" pretty much sum it up.
Language, I had not realized Blogger was so edgy. I will not be thinking of moving for a while--at least not until a certain writing project is done. I will be interested in hearing what you recommend.
mzn, you've backed up your tamplate by now, right?

Yes, my template is now backed up. I'm embarrassed not to have thought to do it before.
