Yes, something went gravely awry with the background of my blog. I had it professionally redesigned in 2012, but the designer's contact info no longer works. 

It's been so long since I coded in HTML that I can't figure out how to change the background color from the horrible kitten. I hate to go back to a regular Blogger template since I rather liked the nice green background. 

Any thoughts? What code should I look for? I've been trying several things, to no avail.

It IS February, isn't it?


  1. I've only done simple HTML and have forgotten most of what I used to know like my name, but if you have an IT person at your school, they make be able to help.

  2. Disclaimer: not an expert or even a well-versed amateur! But when I right-clicked and used "view page source" to look at the code, two of the variable definitions (line 85 and line 118) are for "background-image," and the URL is a photobucket file that's not at photobucket anymore. So maybe try changing the URL to a different photo and see what happens? Good luck!

  3. I say back up the blog first before you star messing with it so you can always go back.

    There's got to be a high schooler or college kid who knows enough to do it and you can pay them peanuts.

    Or see if there's someone in your school that you could bribe? Shouldn't take long if they know what they're doing.

  4. No experience with Blogger, but lots of sympathy for the situation!

  5. Hi Ms. YingLing. I can probably fix for you. Email me at No charge. As a favor from blogger to blogger!

  6. Karen, I made a comment this past weekend that must not have gone through. My computer guy did the same thing grrlpup did with the same result. Is that how you fixed this?
