I have been hacking away all day (for a day and a half now) at 3 templates. PHEW!
Sadly choice #3 was taken out of the running because it had frames, meaning it had scroll bars INSIDE the template... which I really hate. Though other people still use them, they are outdated... and IMHO a pain in the butt.
So that made things a bit more difficult, and ended up choosing my favorite out of a 4 way tie. I am trying out this template to show you guys what it looks like in action.
The other template, the very cute alligator can be found at my template laboratory. You can view the template here.I still have to gussy up the side bar of course. :O)
You will see that there is a gap between the gator and the actual blog post/sidebar... I tried everything I could think of to fix it.
So one more vote please, thanks!
