Reconstruction -- and SOS!

I was just over at Autumn Ables and saw her pretty template, and decided to give the Pyzam site a try. I found this one and -- LOVE IT!! -- but for some reason most of my sidebar content was deleted. That made me unhappy -- I really loved my sidebar. I've spent a long time building it up, getting my quotes, my widgets -- can someone hum a funeral dirge for me?

In the meantime, I wonder if you all would help me out in the following ways.

1. Would you please post a comment here so I can follow you back and get your link and put you in my sidebar? I know a lot of my regular readers don't post a comment every time, and I don't want to miss anyone, and searching through all my old comments just makes me want to cry. So, please -- will you comment here and help me out?

2. If any of you liked the quotes in my sidebar and wrote them down, would you please put those in the comment trail too?

3. Also, please tell me what were your favorite features of my sidebar? I'll try to remember everything I had on there, but it's going to take me a little while to reconstruct.

I'm going to be saving all of this information as a regular blog from now on so it will show up in my archives. In the meantime, we'll figure it out somehow.

Thanks!

Cool new template but sorry to hear that your sidebar and widgets bit the dust. Not fun. Oh, by the way I absolutely LOVE the idea you posted on my blog about having a different day of the week for different blogs that you visit. Such a cool and organized idea! I love it!

I liked your Christmas tree.

I did the same thing when I changed templates last. Very frustrating! I like the new template. Also, I'm enjoying the halloween pets!

Oh no, you poor thing, losing your content. =( Hope you're able to remember it/ get it back somehow. =)

That's a huge bummer that you lost your sidebar stuff! I'd be a bit miffed about that too. Didn't you have the LDS blog ring code on there?

Tristi,
It looks great, but that is SO stinky that you lost so much stuff. I guess that is a lesson for all of us! Be careful when we change templates!

You're not the only one with a vanishing sidebar and pyzam....here is my link east-of-eden.blogspot.com

I can't remember your quotes, but I know they were good....sorry about that.

The template looks great, Tristi. You had the links to my political articles on the 2008 candidates on your sidebar.

I'll have to think about the rest. If I knew the funeral dirge I'd do a duet with Jeri.

This is a nice template. Your Blog is in my bookmarked folder just for the Blogs I enjoy reading. :)

Karen said...

Bummer. I will probably never change a thing on my blog. If anyone could mess it up, it would be me.

Cheri J. Crane said...

Note to self: never change the template. Got it! I agree with Karen, if there's a way to mess things up, I tend to do it. But your new template looks great. And it's looking like you're getting your sidebar up and running.

I really like the new pics in the background, but I loved your other one too so I'm sad you lost stuff. My blog is www.rachellewrites.blogspot.com
Thanks!

I love the new look, but I don't dare go experimenting with my blog. If I lost the information on my sidebar, it would probably be gone forever.

Love the flower background! I'm going to have it a looksee...lol
