I didn't like how some of the Google ads looked on blog, so I decided to take them out. Apparently I deleted something that wasn't part of the ads, because I royally fouled up my theme. After discovering that the last 3 times I thought I backed up my blog I actually hadn't, I gave up. I've activated a different theme for the time-being while I try to figure out what on earth I did to my index file and how to fix it.
Wish me luck and patience. I really stinkin' hate starting all over again.
