You know, I really didn't have a problem with the way the old blogger worked, but hey, far be it from me to stop progress. So, I went in and updated the template. Sheez, I lost all of my links and had a heck of a time figuring out how to reestablish them. Oh how I longed for HTML. OK, it took a while, but I found how to add back the links.
I have discovered that I have a problem finishing things. I have a sweater that only needs the sleeves done, and then I can put it together. But, I found--and started--another pattern. I need discipline.
