Yesterday when we were doing our rounds of visiting all your blogs and leaving comments, the log on screen suddenly appeared and when we went to log on it said our account had been deactivated! What the woof !!!!! We tried through out the day to get back on and sent email after email to google.....Mom and I were in near panic state! Finally this morning we got an email to say there had been in error and our blog was restored. It really scared us and the first thing Mom did was download her template and blog (this is a good hint for everyone - make a copy of your template and blog because you never know what will happen)
If you need to do this click on the 'design' tab, then the 'edit template' tab and then you see at the top of the page in orange a line that says 'download a copy of your template'. Then go to to the 'settings' tab and click on the link that says 'export blog' This will download your entire blog for you and NO - it doesn't export it somewhere else or delete it. These instruction are only for blogger.
We sure are glad to be back and you know Mom always says "everything happens for a reason" and I guess the reason for this was to remind us to download our template and blog more often.
