Did you notice? THE SAVVY SHOPPER has a new look. On Friday when I sat down to write, I noticed that Blogger had updated itself. How you publish a post works differently now.
Hmm. The appearance of THE SAVVY SHOPPER looked different too … and not in a good way. Soon I discovered I could not pull up my old template and fix it. Blogger now regards that old design as a “classic,” read “limited, impossible to tweak” template, which really means: Hey Jack (or Jill), you are out of luck!
And people, I was nearly in tears. Over 3 years of content that now looked oh, so terrible! What was I going to do? Well instead of crying, I got busy on a new template, customizing layouts, fonts and colors. I hadn't planned on sitting in front of a computer screen on Friday afternoon, first writing a series of urgent emails to Google, which essentially said the same thing: “OH, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, PLEASE HELP ME get my blog back to the way it should look!” before accepting the inevitable and working on a new design.
