...messing about with blog

In case anyone is trying to view this blog - I am knee deep in HTML, a language I don't speak in search of the key to a 3 col layout - hope to resume normal transmission soon - thanks for your patience!!

OK think I'm about done - all I need now is a fancy shmancy header - this is temporary - but its beddy time here. I'll have another go tomorrow.

ED Again- think it's ok now - I went to the Beginners blogging guide and used their guidelines to change my Minima template to a 3 column layout - except that I made my outer wrapper 930, my main is 420 and my sides are 190. Clear? No, me neither, but it seems to work for me.

If you are going to mess around with your blog BACK IT UP FIRST!!!! Go on, ask me how I know!!

hope this helps somebody...


  1. I've been searching for the same thing forever, let me know if you find the secret, LOL!

  2. I love your blog header already!! I have no idea how to make one of these so I'm impressed!

  3. OK---you've inspired me!!! I'm going to try this next week---I have wanted the three columns for some time now---does it tell me how to back up my blog? or is that something I'm supposed to already know!!?? ;}

  4. The blog looks lovely! HTML math is like algebra, you've got to add in a bunch of extra letters and symbols and it still won't make sense!

    I think my blog is in need of a bit of a make over...perhaps I'll go with updated post first. :D

  5. Your blog looks great, Claire! I love the photo slide show, too. I long to visit your beautiful country some day.

    I found a web site that explains lots of blogging things, including how to do the 3 columns:

    Not that you need that now, but they have lots of other tips, too. Sometimes I wish I'd gone with Typepad, because it seems like there's a lot more versatility and ease of use, but I cheaped out. I guess I'd rather spend it on stamps!
