Halelujiah ! !

Praise the Lord!! I have almost everything restored. I had to celebrate with a flower pic. One of the reasons I hate to make any changes to my blogs is because of this very thing. Mercy, it's nerve wracking doing anything with these templates and html !! I feel like I've been dropped in the middle of a minefield and the next step I take in any direction may result in sudden gory bloggity death. It wouldn't have been so bad if it had been one of the new blogs I was trying to set up that had went awol on me, but it had to be my MAIN blog that I use every.single.day. Just this morning it was my only blog. I started this blog last November, and it has grown to be a very important part of my life.

When I began this endeavor in bloggery, I never expected to get so much enjoyment and fun out of it. Never. I just started it as a sort of online diary, never expecting anyone else to read or even be interested enough to come back to it. What a pleasant and unexpected joy it has been to find my precious online friends here, and I am blessed to have several of my family that visit daily too. So when I ran my blog into a figurative brick wall earlier tonight, it was like a bully stomping my puppy. I had real tears in my eyes thinking about the lost work, and really about the lost links to you, my blogging buddies. I. Have. No. Memory. Absolutely. NONE. BUT...............I just so happen to have most of my links saved to bookmarks in Mozilla Firefox.

Praise Ye the Lord, All Ye People!! Let all the Heavens and the Earth give Thanks! And I mean that from the bottom of my heart. I would have had to be medicated if I didn't get my Boomama, Faith, Holymama!, Jeana, Mike, and Andre fix, and ALL my blogger buddies that I read every day, and most of the time, multiple times a day. I told Boomama yesterday that she probably thinks I'm stalking her, because I visit her page so often. I visit most of you several times a day---I don't want to miss anything, ya'll! And I try to comment at least once on most of your new posts. Everybody needs a little encouragement now and then, and I feel like a thief when you comment on my posts if I don't leave you a note on your blog. It's just being friendly in the world of bloggery.

By the way, the 3 other blogs I was trying to set up are a family photo blog, a recipe blog, and a surprise for someone that I will reveal closer to a certain event. The photo and recipe blogs are set up, but I haven't posted anything yet on those. I will post the addresses when I have those ready for viewing, so stay tuned. :)

I had intended to post on something entirely different tonight, but after the trial by bloggery ordeal I've already been through tonight, I think this will be the extent of my posts for the time being. That, and it's already 2 freakin' 30 in the morning! So, Good Night, Good Morning, or Good Afternoon, all, wherever you are in the blogging world. Thanks for all your encouragement, and for being my friends.

Love, Diane :)

It's looking good. I like the clock, btw. Nice touch. I'll be looking forward to the other blogs. Good work! ;-)

Diane said...

Thanks, Mike, that means a lot coming from you, :). I will be working on the others, especially the one I didn't say much about. I am trying to beat a deadline on that one, so it will probably have first priority for a while.
Hope you're having a nice weekend, but I assume since you're up so early, you have to work today. Have a good one anyway. ;)

Take care, Meow

"Gory bloggity death" - now that's funny.

The technical part of blogging can be so frustrating...but it is so worth it. And I like the clock, too. :-)

Meow,
Thanks, and nice to hear from you. :)

Boomama,
Thanks, but on days like yesterday, I wonder if it's worth it or not, ;).
