I'm not sure right now that this was a good idea.

***UPDATED***

Didn't want to waste a post (#99!), but obviously I figured out how to get 3 columns in the right spots! I was using the wrong template - which dawned on me after I went upstairs last night. So - yay! I've been wanting to put some pics of the family up, but it was getting a little crowded there on the lone sidebar. I'm sure I'll be playing with it for a while now, but at least now it looks readable. Thanks to all who offered to help :)

Ok, so if you're by chance here reading this you probably went WTF or something to that effect when you saw the 'changes' I've made. Hah! That's what I'm thinking myself anyway! I've been wanting a 3-column blog for a while now and so I played around with the code (thank you, Cutest Little Blog on the Block!). Well I can't figure out how to get the posts in the middle where I want them; you can't just 'drag' your gadgets from column to column, you have to remove/add them; and then the background wasn't wide enough and looked like - I don't know what. And the header was an image that didn't match the background. So now I've made a mess of it and it's time for bed and I'm meeting my neighbor at 6 tomorrow morning to run. I could copy the old code back, but I've already moved stuff around and I have NO IDEA what that would do, so here we are. Bear with me while I try to figure this out. Hopefully that will be before I do my 100th post (2 more posts! You might not be hearing from me for a while! Lol!)

Before I go, though, I wanted to let you all know that Christie at Pop Rocks for Breakfast is having an AWESOME giveaway for her 200th post - go see her and get in on it, you have 4 chances to win something fun! Go - go now!

  6. Actually, I think it's pretty! I've done the whole 3 column, writing in the center before. When I'm not so tired tomorrow, I will hunt down the tutorial I used.

    I know Sneaky Momma does a lot of great tutorials. They're super easy to follow. And she's super sweet. :)
