My blog has had a make-over!

My blog was looking a bit old and tired, so I've given it a make-over (using a kit that I'll be releasing soon called "Simple Pleasures").

I've been meddling in the fairly unfamiliar (to me) html field in trying to adjust margins etc. so it looks reasonable on both widescreen and standard monitors. I use dual monitors; a standard 17" and a widescreen 20" so I am able to see what it looks like on both of these.

I've reached a bit of a compromise, but I feel it looks far better on the widescreen as more of the dotty background is visible and the rest of it doesn't look so large/out of proportion on the screen. Any widescreen monitor wider than 20" will probably just see a cream stripe on either outer side. It's easy enough to make the white 'middle' narrower, and I can adjust the margins on the posts and date headers etc. to accomodate that but I just can't seem to find where to adjust the widgets so they don't overlap off the white centre............in short I'm sick of looking at it and I've left it how it is for now. Messing around with widgets and html is NOT my field, it's all been a bit hit and miss for me! LOL

If things are overlapping or it looks a bit wierd on your monitor I'd be pleased to get some feedback. Thanks.

Robyn, I have a 24" widescreen monitor and your blog looks GREAT to me! And now you've made another kit that I'll just have to add to my collection when it's in the Den Shoppe. :-)
