I sat down to check my blog and--low and behold--the whole thing was back!
The day I deleted it, Erik very sweetly tried to set it back up again, by creating a new blow--with the old template and name, but obviously all my posts were lost, along with links, comments, and other important stuff. A very kind anonymous soul had copied the files from the Google cache (isn't it great how I can type that like I know exactly what it means, when actually, I have no fucking idea) so I had most of them, but no way really to repost them (that I knew of) and most of the comments were lost.
Then, just now, I logged in, and BLAM! Two blogs named "I thought this would be more like having a cat" appeared on my dashboard. The kind kind folks at blogger help must have responded to my email pleas and worked their blogger magic.
Of course, I'm always running blindly along with this blog thing--thinking I'm savvy when actually, my blogger IQ is probably close to that of plankton--so I quickly copied the 3 posts from the new blog onto the old blog--and deleted it.
Along with all the new comments.
To everyone who wrote a comment when I was being pissy and blog-destructive, thanks so much. Those comments ment more to me than I can say, and I'm kicking myself in the ass with a steal toed boot for loosing them. Plus, I have to admit, that I'm a bit of a comment whore anyway. (I really should just have them emailed to me, but I'm afraid that I'd just be checking my email ALL THE TIME!)
So--thanks blogger wizards. You are wise in the way of the force.
