I hate IOS5. I don't have an SHSH blob.

Is it possible to downgrade my iPhone 3GS from IOS 5 to an earlier version of IOS, preferably 4.3.3? What if I don't have an SHSH blob?

I upgraded to IOS 5 as soon as it was released to the public and I hate it! On my 3GS its slow, buggy, and the iPod music app hangs and crashes on a regular basis meaning that I am having to "Restore All Settings" two or three times a day. I'm fed up and want to go back to IOS 4 (hopefully 4.3.3 because I hear the jailbreak for that one is real easy and I think I'm ready to take the plunge) but I'm confused about how to proceed.
I found this tutorial on how to downgrade
and I have read through it several times but am still not clear. In the second paragraph they say: "In order for this to work, you must have previously backed up SHSH blobs for the version of iOS you’re trying to downgrade to." but reading through the later steps I don't see where I am going to use that SHSH blob. Until half an hour ago I didn't even know what an SHSH blob was so needless to say I don't have one. Is there any way to proceed without one or get one someplace else?
