I did this too. You tried the new templates on blogger, huh? I haven't been happy with mine in months...
Yep, I did the same thing and can't get the 3 column template back and the others are crummy! Keep trying and I promise, I won't hold it against ya, we all like to try new backgrounds!
I'm thinking of moving to Wordpress...not sure I want to put in the effort, though.
i love comments!
