Not-so-great news: Last post before enforced switch to Google version of

Blogger has politely informed me that this is the last time I'll be able to access my dashboard via my current Blogger account. So, if you don't see any new posts for a few days, it'll be because I'm engaged in a frantic e-mail exchange with the more technology-gifted (which is almost every blogger but me), trying to figure out how to recreate my settings in the new Google Sheyna, you'll be happy to know that I just copied my current template into both Word and Notepad and e-mailed it to two of my accounts for safekeeping. And, as soon as I hit the Publish Post button--assuming that it still works--I'm going to finish updating my archives in Word, on the chance that I might lose a few odds and ends in the process of making the switch. Wish me luck.

My condolences...I was also forced into new blogger...and I hate it.

Looks good from here. LOL on the template. I did that for mine, too. Didn't need it, as it turns out.

I don't know of any way to lengthen the previous post titles, and I don't code in php. Sorry!

Must get back to work... I have two characters taken hostage and one's bleeding on the floor. I should probably fix that. :-) Two scenes away from being done with the book!

Jameel, I know the feeling--I'm not too happy about the chopped-off post titles on the "Previous Posts" lists in my sidebar. :( You would think that a plain-vanilla template such as mine wouldn't be a problem for the sophisticated Google.

Sheyna, contact Jameel and tell him that one of your characters is in need of his paramedic services. :)

Speaking of templates, mine didn't quite survive the switch, apparently. :( (See above, not to mention the next post). Is there any kind soul who can code in php (whatever that is)?

Hi Shirah,

I think I know enough php to see about getting your cropped titles fixed, I'll just have to get to it later in the week. get in touch with me via email, and we can work out the details.

Apparently I got switched without even knowing it.

Or something. The dashboard now says google, and I haven't been asked to jump to new improved blogger for a while.

Plus I look pretty in pink.

Thanks, Anon, er, Arush, er . . . I would really appreciate your help. I'll be in touch.

Back of the Hill, that must have been some surprise.
