Starting Over

As you can see, my blog has undergone a radical change.  This came about because a couple of weeks ago my computer had a broken profile...whatever that is.  Consequently, I lost stuff, photos, internet access, etc.  The only apps and programmes I had on the computer were the original defaults.  Not good, I though, panicking,

However, I rang my tame computer geek and explained the problem.  "Oh," says he,  "It'll all be there somewhere."  I felt my heart rate slowly go back to normal.  When he arrived later in the day, sure enough after a few keystrokes and mouse wanders, everything was there on my desktop.  However, it did leave me with one rather large problem.  My passwords for Blogger and Facebook would work.  That has required setting both up from scratch again...hence my new look blog.  I hope you like it.

Now all I have to do is transfer you all over...that may take some time.


  1. Sorry you had such trouble with your computer. Those computers geeks are wonderful to have around. I sure love mine.

    Have a terrific day. (I came by way of Tor.) :)

  2. Well that sucks but i don't understand why you lost your blogger files.
    It should be independent from your computer.

    Well the good part is you get to start fresh :)

  3. Robyn,
    Funny you should have this computer "failure" since I too have encountered a "Blue Screen of Death" and my lap top is in the shop now. No telling how much I've lost. Much is backed up but my pics are not.
    Guess I'll sip a salty dog and get on with things. ;)

  4. :::patting you on your shoulder::: "It'll be okay"....I like your humming bird background and all the blues!! Your new blog will be fun and soon you'll be back in action.

    Hope you're having a great day! Thanks for stopping by yesterday. Your company is always welcomed!!

  5. Hi Robyn ~~ Sorry you had all that trouble and had
    to make a new blog. Good luck with it. my friend.
    Glad you like the purple flowers as most did.
    Summer is almost over, can you believe that?
    Glad the bad weather seems to have settled down.
    Look after yourself, Robyn. Take care, Love,Merle

  6. Isn't computer problems the worst, especially when you loose things. I am glad you got things back. What would we do without those computer geeks, they save us all the time. Thank you for coming by, have a nice week.

  7. Oh, noooo! That's the worst nightmare to have, when the computer is troublesome. They should just always work, right? *giggles*

    Thx for your sweet comment, it was nice to "hear your blog voice" again :-)

  8. Gosh! This is awful! Think it would be best to back-up whatever is in the computer at all times. I still prefer the old-fashion hard copy but then you need space.

  9. It looks really nice ! I had once the same no access to my google account and therefore not to Blogger nothing. I don't know how, but I managed to get all back ! My very first blog had a serious problem with the sidebar, it just disappeared. No way to get it back so I created a new Writer's Cramps. But the old one is still there without sidebar !
    Now I am busy slowly slowly to get my blog printed. I have tried it out with my cat blog the year 2006/2007 and it came out great !
    I thought it would be a nice memory for little Toby so that he can see how his grandma was.


Thank you for visiting and I look forward to reading your comment.
