I goofed on my blog ...

and would love some help please!  I tried adding in a button to my blog a couple of days ago.  I put it in the side bar.  I have done this before and didn't think anything of doing it again.  Well, I learned a lesson. 

***You should have a recent and updated copy of your blog template saved in a separate location.  I thought I had done this, but  it was long ago and I can't find it.  It probably would have been missing a lot of things anyway.***

So, I've lost a lot of information that was in my sidebar.  Some of the things I'll be able to recreate (hopefully).  I would love some help here.

If you are one of my blog friends, could you post here or send me an email with your blog address so I can work on making a new "friends" list of blogs?  I know I can find a lot of them, but it would be so much easier if you could post and help me out - please.  :-D  Those that are on my friends list with homeschoolblogger - I can retrieve that list!  Whew!  It's all the others  that are hosted by different blog sites that will be a bit harder to get.

Thanks friends for your help.

Merry Christmas!


  1. Send me a pm on my blog, ill help you out best i can to get your buddy list back up :)

  2. Oh no!! That's so frustrating. I hope RJ can help you!

  3. And if you are wondering why I wrote "RJ" it's because I saw the comment above mine, only took in the two initials and automatically thought it was Rachel. Sorry. LOL (Hey, it's early!)

  4. ...I had that happen to me when I tried to add a blog button as well. It goofed up the main template screen. Luckily my 12 year old daughter (who is better at html than I am) helped me retrieve the info that was lost.

    I'm hoping you can get your info back. Would it help to go into your profile to find a list of your friends? That should be independant of the template settings. In fact, I am thinking that you just erased the code to show your friends. I'll ask my dd!

    Neat blog, by the way. I found it by looking through the last 100 entries.

    Blessings to you,


  5. Oh no! I've had a similar thing happen before as well.

    I don't know if I was on your list or not...but my blog is

  6. So frustrating. That happened to me once as well. I never did figure out why. Not that I really know much about computers, but still! LOL

    Hoping you can get it all back w/o much effort.

  7. YEA We got it back :)

  8. Thanks for helping me get the hsblogger list of friends back up! :-)

    Now to get to the rest of the missing things.

    *sitemeter - I really miss this as I like seeing where people are coming from
