Why does it have to be so hard to customize a freaking blog? I guess if you work with cascading style sheets all of the time you get used to it. But overrides aren’t easy. Anyone ever heard of drag and drop? Ok, how about just drag?
It took way to long to customize this blog. First of all, the font was teeny tiny. I guess it was ok if you are running 800×600 or 1024×768 resolutions but I run 1680×1050 and higher. And the eyes are getting older. The original template had the columns too skinny. The main column for the posts is wider now and that will allow some room for a pretty picture here and there. Here’s Elvis, my dog. The green in his eyes is leftover kryptonite.
I managed to workaround just about all of the overrides I wanted to make, but it would be nice to have more direct control over the source template. I guess hosting millions of blogs makes that impractical.
Oh well, I guess the better part of the world just takes a template and uses it.
