I had a terrible experience today. Mid morning is my faint, weak, must have food or I'll collapse time of day. So, when I sat down with my rescue snack at the computer, I should never have attempted to work on my blog. I noticed a new template that Blogger was promoting called Dynamic Views and tried out the "Magazine" template option. It looked great, but I finally noticed that none of my side links were there that I've accumulated since the beginning of my blog. These are links I don't have a copy of. I looked and tried to change it back to no avail, thought it had all vanished.
Well, this afternoon I tried some more and found it again when I plugged in my old template. Whewww. Think I better do a backup.
