Man, I just had a very close encounter with eternal doom. Sam would have ripped my heart right out.

I was on the Blogger general site, and was looking at some other people's blogs, and saw that some have more than one page to them. I decided that I wanted one!

So I typed into Google 'Blogger Templates' and found one I liked. So I was experimenting around and accidentally deleted the original. I pooped myself a little. After realising that I should have saved the HTML code for the original, I panicked and quickly put the original back together.

Can you notice the screwups or any other major changes? I really hope not...

Breathe, Tom. Breathe...

"I pooped myself a little." (…) What does 'pooped' mean, Tom?! I'm a foreigner, you know, so explain it to me please…

I found some instructions from the Blogger site. Perhaps it will help you. If you make sure to save the original template (or css code in xml format) you can make all the changes of style you want. This will only change the style - aesthetics - of your blog (CSS means Cascading Style Sheets). These changes won’t alter the content. So relax, but not too much! The armchair with toilet seat built-in has not yet been patented!
You can just edit the style code. You can download all the templates you like and experiment with them on your site. So enjoy!

How to upload Blogger templates:

1. Download your Blogger XML template from BTemplates.com.
The template is contained in a zip file (winzip, winrar), ensure you have extracted the XML template.
2. Log in to your Blogger dashboard and go to Layout > Edit HTML
3. Ensure you back up your old template in case you decide to use it again. To do this, click on the "download full template" link and save the file to your hard drive.
4. Look for the section near the top where you can browse for your XML template:
5. Enter the location of your template and press "upload".
6. The HTML of your new template will now appear in the box below. You can preview your template or simply save to start using it!

Pooped means pooed, crapped etc...
And thanks for the advice, I may have Sam nearby next time I try though... :(

Ok! ||smile|| I was kidding when I asked you for the meaning, Tom! It's difficult to explain the joke… It's a word that I find funny in Spanish [Sp. PopĆ³, Pope] and I didn't know that it is used in English with the same meaning; I just found it hilarious :D
Still, I must give a few ‘turns of the screw’ / in order to understand your language as you do... Oh, I made a rhyme!
