Huge celebrations yesterday afternoon. I couldn't find how to take off the word verification - drove me bonkers!!! My good mate Gina kept making fantastic suggestions and telling me places to go on my dashboard but the 'word verification' just wasn't there!! In the end I ploughed through the forums and found the answer. I had to go back to the old blogger interface. Again I was stumped because there was no link on my new interface to take me back there! In the end I found a message on the forums which said this:-
I've been able to track down most things that seem to have moved on the new dashboard but I can't find this one. You may have to go to the old dashboard to do it. You can do that by logging in to www.blogger.com/home instead of www.draft.blogger.com/home . If it won't open the old dashboard for you, then you may have to clear your cache.
So, what I did was sign out, paste the url into the browser bar and then sign in. First thing I got greeted with was my old interface - the rest was history!!!!! Oh, I also found out later in the day that I could easily manage my 'following' list here too - can't do that in the new interface - yet!!
This is one of the motifs from Martha's new book. I added beads 'here and there' for a bit of sparkle. Can I just mention here that I really love the designs in this book. The broomstick picots are SUCH fun to make.
