Better Terms Rises From the Ashes...Sort Of

Sometimes, this whole blogging experience can be SUCH a challenge. More challenge than I really want to encounter, most of the time.

This evening, I have discovered two things:

Deleting multiple entries from “Blogger” is WAAAY more trouble than it is worth…

And…

I can SOMETIMES outsmart the capricious cyber-gods and actually bend this recalcitrant medium to my will. To a certain extent.

In other words, I figured out how to convert this old blog to the “Layout” format from the “Template” format, even though it refused to show me the magic buttons through normal channels.

But I will not be able to make the 300+ old “Coming to Terms…” entries I painstakingly copied and pasted into this journal go away without deleting them one by one. Something in which I choose not to invest precious time at this juncture.

So, I cannot restore “Better Terms” to its original ideal of a blog that contains only my “next level” writing.

However…

I can now mess with the template and pretty it up to my heart’s content.

You win some, you lose some…

I love the template. I am scared to mess with mine. I h=do not have an upgraded blogger format on Just a HG...and I am thinking I will loose everything I have sweated blood over getting on. I can not even figure out how to move over the Vivi award! Woa is me, lol!

The layout function does make things much easier. I'm still trying to back up the old Sorting The Pieces. Any suggestions on how to do it other than one entry at a time. I've got over 1700 entries over there.
