well, i started a new blog because of the technical difficulties, and....to make a long story short, I noticed that it was the new template that was causing me problems. So... i'm switching templates, & keeping the same URL. but... i don't have time pick the perfect template & all the colors etc. that go with it. I'll get to it sometime.
in the meantime, i'm just going to shout out there into the deep space of internet-land that i'm *so* unimpressed with blogger.com ' s technical support. they didn't even try to help me figure out my problem.
for those of you who told me that you couldn't click on the links etc. either, please let me know if it's working for you, now, or not.
