Hoity Toity Features

Meh. According to Blogger, if I want to be able to create polls and surveys on my site, I have to upgrade my template. I'm a little worried about losing template changes I've made, since blogger is so easy to work with (see previous post). Nevertheless, I was reassured by the following note that is attached to the option to upgrade: YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR CHANGES AND PROBABLY BE FOREVER LOST IN OUR MAD, STRANGE, NEW TEMPLATE: MUHAHAHAHA! I'm not really thrilled with the idea. On the other hand, I would get new, hoity toity features like polls and whatnot. On still another hand, hardly anybody reads this blog, so why would I expect the polls to reveal anything new and interesting™? On yet another limb (onto feet now), it is a pretty kewl feature. Fortunately, I ran out of limbs to use for considering things. The bit with the "still another hand" was really a foot you see. It was then that I got a flash of insight: why not ask if anybody actually reads this blog? If anyone bothers to respond, then it may actually be worth upgrading my template so that I can add polls! On the other hand…argh…there I go again. So if you are actually reading this, please add a comment so I know that upgrading my template is not a complete and utter waste. In fact, you can create a comment that says "Hey, shut up!" And that will communicate basically the same thing.

Hey,
Thanks for stopping by today. I LIKE YOUR BLOG. Fear not the template change, blogger friend. Just make sure you have your links to other blogs that you like stored someplace. You can get the blog your blessings blog roll from Neo, so you don't need to worry there, but the others you might want to copy and past into a Wordpad document for safety sake. Then just do it! See ya.

Trying again -- must remember to look at typos before I send!

Sure I look at your blog posts BUT I hate polls so would not reply to any.

You can do it, girl! Update that template. Before you do, open textpad or wordpad (text editor) and copy and paste your existing blog into a document and save it. If you do not like the new Blogger, you can revert back.

Opps, should have read Sandy's post first. Nothing like getting the same message twice. LOL
