My Facelift

Okay, not mine really. Blogalicious has had a makeover. It's her birthday so something new seemed in order. I wanted a more open look, something less boxed in. One thing that prompted me to make the change was that YouTube has enlarged their videos, so the last one I posted was too large for my posting area and extended beyond the margin which was ugly. Collin Kelley clued me in on how to fix that by adjusting the html code, and I made it work. But I kind of liked the larger video. 

Thus began a few days of experimenting with new looks. As you can see, I've stuck with the same color scheme. I want my blog to sort of match my website. I know that's alarmingly compulsive, but there you have it.

One thing I could not get with this new template is lower case letters in the header, footer, dates, and a few other places. I'm not keen on all caps, so if anyone knows how to adjust that, please clue me in. Also I'd like a line separating one post from another and could have that if I retained the border that is part of this template. But that messed up my header. It's there but you can't see it as I made it the same color as the background. Unfortunately, that eliminated (or colored over) the borders between posts. I'm fooling around with putting in a line in the post layout window, but am not sure it will look right. So bear with me through a few posts. Beauty comes at a price.
