So...although I don't know how it happened, the template layout on my blog was changed from three columns to two. And word verification was turned on.
I can see a Blogger techie just rolling his/her eyes and muttering "Yeah, and you didn't change a thing."
In my former life I was a programmer and I muttered those very words under my breath too many times to count.
But I didn't.
Didn't change a thing.
But now I have. Changed things, that is.
My blog is back to three columns and (what I realize now is) its old, boring self.
Oh there are still some issues (like those screwdriver/wrench icons dotted all over the screen)
but I'll deal with them later. Probably.
What I DO need to do is add some pizzazz to my blog.
Will work on that.
At least word verification is off. I hope!
