Blog blahs

I don't know about you, but I totally think my blog needs a new look. I have tried to tweak things myself and usually end up wrecking everything and having to start all over. I just don't have the time or knowledge to putting into making this space prettier. So, I found this contest where you can WIN a blog makeover!!! Click on the pretty button below and you will be taken to the designers website to see all that she has done!
(p.s. please excuse the overlapping ads--the button she has is longer than my typing screen will allow--see I need help!!)

Hey Sadie,

Chris gave me this address for different templates and......


Check it out:

I, too, am having trouble figuring out how to widen my page to utilize the whole screen space. I've seen other blogs that have these big magnificent pictures, and all I can get are these little rinky-dinky pictures. I found a place that tells you how to increase the picture, but when I did, it just cut off most of the photo. When I figure it out, I'll let you know.

But for starters, go to The Cutest Blog On The Block and see what you can come up with. If "I", a complete non-technical person, can do it, I know YOU can!!!

Missed you on the radio this morning!

YES, Sadie, me LIKEY this template! Pretty green & pinks....

It's you!

I'll let you know when I figure out how to enlarge the "meat" of the posts and sidebars. I'm scared to try it because it says to save your template first in case of boo-boos, which I tried, but I can't get it to save! I don't want to change something and then lose what I already have. I'm such a chicken.

But I shall figure it out one day. OK, off to some chores. Just put a new post up myself. Go check it out, girlie.

OK, I likey the sunflowers better.

Glad you got it all fixed and working again.

Let me know if you figure out how to widen without losing the template pics on the side.

hey guys- just read this string of comments.

Blogger has a template you can use to widen the page called "Minima Stretch". Just go to your layout tab and click on "pick new template". the very first icon has three Minima choices "the middle one is Minima stretch".

you can always change the color or it using the 'fonts and colors' button too.

I have used the cutest blog on the block for layouts too..you can also search "free blogger layouts" in google to find others.....

I am off to bed!
