After a dozen tries, I finally have successfully imported all of my posts and comments from Blogger. Hooray! 😆

I had to delete everything I had accomplished over the last three days and start all over this morning. Now I just have to modify the sidebars which will take some time since I did most of that yesterday and now it’s all gone. 🙁

Things will start looking better soon. I would appreciate any comments on the new look, but given the fragile state of my nerves and emotions through all of this painstaking process, please only leave positive comments. (There were times when I wanted to pull my hair out, but it would hurt too much.) 😥
My old blog will remain on Blogger at the old address and I will continue to help my friends who have Blogger issues and want template redesigns.

    Great new look. Love your banner. I’ve made this change myself from a blogging community to blogger. It is a lot of work!

    What is all this stuff above this comment box with red x’s?
    The list on the left is easier for me to read than your blog text.
    could you go back to the old way? This is hard for me to read…
    too small, appears lite gray and so, there you have my negative comment… sorry, but I have old eyes!

    I fixed the problem with the red x’s. It was only showing up in Internet explorer. Now you will see Smiley’s. You can use them in your comment by clicking on one of them and it will appear in comment when it is submitted. 😎
