    If you need a laugh... and apparently I did... read on.

    I'm in the process of migrating my ftp-based blogger blog over here. i exported the xml, then converted to the wxr. all ready for upload! just one simple click here....

    hmm #1, assign authors, these aren't me. but i can reassign, no worries...
    hmm #2, the post titles uploading don't look familiar...
    hmm #3, OMG this isn't my stuff!!!

    so i just got done deleting 655 posts from someone else's life.
    off to go find mine again...

    :)

    (at least i can still laugh at the circles i've been going in with this migration!)

    Hahaha. You know I saw your support ticket earlier in the day about 5 unknown authors. I thought maybe you had a few guest bloggers that you had forgotten about but I ruled it out when I actually sifted through ALL of your archives looking for them. Since I've never encountered such a thing I've been racking my brain trying to figure out what the heck was going on.

    Now I know. :)

    I have to admit that I'd have never have come up with this scenario if I was trying to help someone troubleshoot a problem!

    I never would have guessed that in a million years either!

    thankfully everything happened right the second time around!
