Since I have been home, I have discovered that my blogs no longer showed a background.
I was TOTALLY bummed that my "Scrappin' Blogs" backgrounds no longer worked . . . they were my favorite backgrounds. My next fave is "Leelou Blogs." Their site was up but I couldn't get the codes for their backgrounds/templates.
This has meant a morning of searching and searching the wed for a template that was plain . . . after many errors in judgement, I finally found one.
Hopefully, now if I can find a background I like, I can add it and won't mess up anything.
If you have a site you like for backgrounds, let me know . . . all of the ones I saved to Pintrest no longer work :(
