Is It Me...

...or does anyone else find it problematic that on Blogger, the "save settings" and "delete this blog" button are right on top of each other? Clearly this wasn't designed with someone like me in mind. If I suddenly disappear from the blogging universe bluniverse, you'll know why. And rest assured that I'm somewhere screaming, "NO! SAVE SETTINGS! I SAID SAVE SETTINGS! FUUUUUUUUUUUCK! WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO NOW?"

And then, like in The Cable Guy when Jim Carrey falls into the satellite dish and everyone's cable goes out and they can no longer squander their hours pointlessly in front of the TV, I suddenly pick up a book. Cue music and deep self-actualizations, courtesy of Dostoyevsky or, you know, that chick who writes about wearing Prada and believing in yourself.

I want to believe that there's some sort of confirmation message, a "are you sure you really want to do that?" warning in between clicking the delete button and having your whole blog just be vanquished.

I want to believe that, but I'm not about to be the person who tries it to find out.

I noticed that I see a difference in where the buttons are depending upon the browser I use. It seems to be easier in Firefox for me.

I'm often scared of the exact same thing. Especially with my "click now - think later" tendencies. I like to think that my blog exists forever and ever, but I would never know how to get it back if I deleted it.

So I was googling "Sweet Valley High" at work (because ... well, it's Monday) and I found your site. You're hilarious! Thank you for existing in blog world!

Red,

Sadly, I know that Stefanie is right, because I clicked the delete button by mistake.

You're not alone.

Stefanie and LC, thanks! I somehow feel like there's a safety net for my stupidity now.

DCMM, I need to get on board with your system, then. Also, nice to hear from you again!

Noelle, I know, right?

Erica, thanks so much, and welcome!
