It did not go well.
As a result I have deleted some of the loveliness I wanted to keep and have added ugliness I had no intention of adding.
So, if you are visiting for the first time, do not leave shaking your head, never to return. Please visit again. And if you are one of my lovely, glittery followers, be assured, business as usual will be resumed as soon as the lovely lady, Lena, who designed my lovely blog gets into my html to undo the damage I have done. (Thank you lovely Lena!)
Lena is responsible for designing a whole host of gorgeous blog layouts at Simply Fabulous Blogger Templates, many of which are completely free to download and use on your blog. And if you manage to make a mess of it, Lena will help you undo the mess you've made. She is Simply Fabulous.
So, I will be writing a new blog post a little later this week. In the meantime, I'm going to take myself to the naughty-blogger step, and have a think about what I've done. And the next time I get all excited about running amok in my html text, I'll save an extra copy of the orginal text before deleting it. A valuable lesson learned I think.
