"Dad!" he excitedly said, "Let's make an April Fool's prank with your blog. We'll remake it and I'll make off like I'm some lefty who's hijacked it!" he says.
"Naww...don't think it's a good idea," I said. "I've worked pretty hard on maintaining the blog over the years; I don't want to wreck it."
"Okay," he said. "I just thought it would be a pretty cool idea."
And the more I thought about it, the more I thought it would be a pretty cool idea, as well. I mean, after all, my 18-year old son is a pretty good wordsmith in his own right. A chip off the old block, you might say. And then I thought, "Yeah, that's right, Blogger allows you to save templates!" So I says to Kodyack, "You go ahead, son. I'll save the template, and I'll restore it back to order after today."
And so Kodyack went to town, and did a helluva job, if I might add.
So, when I got home from work today, I went back to work on restoring my blog. I re-uploaded the template I saved yesterday.
Piece of cake, thinks I.
All my widgets, gone. My Ted Kennedy count-up widget, gone. My blogrolls. Gone. Everything. Gone. Except the posts.
So now I'm left with the chore of re-building my blog.
Joke's on me.
