A successful waste of time

I have spent pretty much all day changing the template here. I went to a website that let me create a template. I went through all the steps, add a kick-ass graphic, selected colors that I liked and when all was said and done, it was just too boring.

Having no knowledge of HTML, I went back to the Blogger pre-set templates, and just copied and pasted the information I wanted to customize, such as my blogroll and links. The problem, as you can see, is the size of the blogroll. I can't figure out how to get the font smaller. Oh, maybe...a thought just occurred to be. I'll try it when I'm done here, so if the blogroll looks the same as the rest of the sidebar, you'll know I was successful. I also need to change the font color of the footer so you can actually see it.

My other problem is that I have no idea how to add the kick-ass graphic, except to put it in my profile. However, I just put Sheep In The Big City there and I don't want to change it just yet. Plus I think the profile picture is too small to do it justice. Again, we'll see.

If anyone out there is familiar with these things and can help me customize this puppy, give me a holler.

Alas, I can lend very little assistance. I just kept changing things and hitting "preview" until it did what I want. I have no idea what to change... it just sort of is changed. Now, I have no idea how to change it any further.

:) Kendra had too much coffee. But she's purty funny caffinated.

I likee the new look, eggspecially the gingham on the sidebar. If you didn't rat yourself out, I would have thought you were a master 'pooter nerd.

I wish I were around. We could sit down and trick out your blog. The new look and my office's baseboard heat magically working have been the highlights of my day.

Yes, that is where my life is at.

I await the return of Sheep. He was fabutatious.

Love the gingham, Laurie Ann. I, too, am html-lacking. I just do the trial and error thing. Maybe you should make the type in the side-bar black...that might help. Best of luck!
