I spent the past couple day trying to find a better template for this blog than the standard ones offerd by Blogger. I found one that looked pretty cool, and I spent this evening making the necessary alterations and trimmings. You can see the results here, and I have to say this is pretty impressive.
I have to give my thanks to isnaini.com, the graphics design site that graciously offers a solid collection of blog templates. They also offer a short tutorial for the benefit of those without web design experience; thankfully, all my HTML lessons from 2001 still apply. There's a graphic link to their site, so feel free to pay a visit if your weblog needs a good tailor.
