As it turns out… editing html code within Blogger templates is not so easy. In fact, it’s nearly impossible. At least for me it is. I have a template called Rounders. I felt that the main text column was too narrow and I wanted to extend the column by say 20 pixels, but I wanted to keep the corners round. Well, as it turns out… it is really hard to alter the px size of the “wrapper” in the “rounder” template because they use a .gif file to make the corners rounded and not code that I can alter. Crap.
So I tried the Minima template. Nice and simple. Yes? No. No it wasn’t. I really wanted to add a sweet picture banner that I made in Photoshop with the text of my blog name on the photo, but when I added all the code and got my picture up the confounded blogger title wouldn’t go away and it looked crappy so… after spending all night cuddled up with html I say “to hell with you blogger templates I’ll write my own damned template!” And then I looked into what would be involved in that and…
I reverted back to Rounders.
But be warned, one day soon I will crack this nut wide open and weave it into a dream that matches my inner blogging fire. Get it? Dreamweaver. Nerd.
Until then, I will be narrow and round and you will love me.
