The first thing you're supposed to do (and I did) was to save a copy of the original as a back-up. Then start messing around with changes.
After you do what you do, to ht SAVE and go look. I did.
Then I noticed is it looked pretty much the way it did on the preview screen and I wanted to make a few more changes and did so.
Then I scrolled down and found that my counter has evaporated. I cannot retrieve it either. SiteMeter has no record of me existing so I no longer will know where the Gentle Viewer hails from. But when I tried to go back to me original layout and get the meter, I couldn't reload it. Go Figure.
I liked this feature because I could tell when our girls or family in Texas stopped by to catch up on the Chicken Farm.
ahem........ "IT IS NOT A FARM. I don't sell anything and I eat only the veg we grow and the eggs they lay. We don't harvest the meat.... I just call it Chicken Farm because that sounds retro and cute!."
Now, I will be shooting in the dark unless I decide to install another counter.
The one you see down there now is GOOGLE meter and does not allow ME to see where people come from. *
Google on the other hand knows everything. Blogger is a Google product.
Now I am not a paranoid. I post these musings of mine for your entertainment (or not) and I hope I have enough filters between my head and fingers to not be typing inflammatory posts.
Do you know that the GOOGLEBOT comes trolling through pages several times a week? Didn't know that, did you? It does. I used to be able to see when it monitored me. I never knew what it was looking for or at. But, it's there...... reading through the posts and pages.
I wonder what it does with it's findings.........
* I added a new meter from a google-approved site to track once more your comings and goings......... (I'm watching you!)
