To re-build or build a new?

I thought I would browse through the Themes tonight to see if anything caught my eye.  I’ve been wondering about a new look for my blog to reinvigorate myself and my love for it. I found one I wanted to demo……

dohAnd I hit activate on my actual site!

I had set up a dummy site a long time ago for times like these when I wanted to play around with something but wasn’t sure I was ready to commit.  Instead of clicking on that one, however, I boldly chose my real site to see how it would really look forgetting the purpose of the dummy site was because you CAN’T GO BACK!

Still I thought, “I haven’t hit save & publish!  There’s a save & publish button!” Whew.

Foolish girl.

When I closed out of everything, I reloaded my page and all of my personalized, rearranged with care, widgets were gone. 😦

I immediately started to put things back where they were. Time is of the essence because the picture of it all is still in my mind!

Now I wonder if I shouldn’t just take the plunge.  Try something new!  Since I basically have to rebuild it all anyway why not?  If I don’t love it I can just rebuild again later, right?

I’m still not sure.  Can the magical WordPress faeries please stop by and fix this so I can have another day to think about it?
