I screwed up our blog! ...aarrrggghh!

Well, it figures, heh? I finally get ready to post a new blog...actually something related to our travels for a change...I log in and see the message for the "new design features"....

oooooh, I think...I'll try it! Should be pretty easy, and then I can finally have the wider display that I've wanted...like some of my fellow bloggers have.
Cool, right? NOT!

I've been monkeying around with this thing for the past hour and a half and my blog is not only no where near visually what I wanted, but it's WORSE! YIKES!

I probably should have just ASKED my fellow bloggers (the ones with the wide columns) HOW to widen MY columns...I'll bet they would have helped?

Any simple, easy suggestions welcome! In the meantime, hang in there folks...I'll get this back to something I can live with soon, might take me a day or two.

UPDATE: July 25, 2010 - It seems to be ok now, I should have updated this post a day or two after I posted it. I'll most likely keep "tweaking" things, but everything seems to be working pretty well for now.
The color is a bit strange at times, but I kind of like it.


  1. Oh mary Ann! What are we to do with you? Have you never heard of the old saying "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"?

    Good luck with getting it back and even possibly wider!


  2. Hi Mary Ann! I used the info from following video link to make my blog wider. I hope it helps you too. Check out my blog to make sure it's what you're looking to do first...just in case!

    Here you go!


  3. You will get it like you want it. Just fiddle with it some more. One of the risks of us non technicals types. I always wander into these things not knowing if I will inadvertently delete or change something or send out unwanted emails... or ???

  4. I saw the "new format stuff" log-in on my dashboard, too. I decided not to do anything. My blog is really plain-Jane but I'm afraid to do anything for fear of screwing it up totally and having to start over. I sympathize with you.

  5. I played around with the new templates, but never saved any of them because I was afraid I would screw it up and not know how to fix it. I know there is a way to save your old blog style, just in case, but darn if I can remember! BTW..I think your blog looks fine.

  6. Thanks for this post, it is great

  7. Believe nothing you hear, and only half of what you see.

  8. Its awesome all of the time to view how folks can compose wonderful stuff about people topics! Thank you and I ve bookmarked you
