technical question

So I'm just starting our blog and I would like to make it "pretty"...I see everyone has fantastic headers and lots of customization. I'm using blogspot...does anyone have a good reference (i.e. simple) on how to customize the look? I've googled but find the tips confusing and not always applicable (did I mention i work in technology?)

www.savannahsails.blogspot.com

Great blogs...much better way to spend my day than actually working!

I started off with one of the blogspot templates and then manually edited it to suit.

The templates can be found under: Customise > Choose New Template

What cat do you have? I can see one of the bows in one of your pics but can't find any more info.

I have their basic template...it's the "manually editing" that I need help with.

It's a 40 ft Owen Easton. Austrailian built. once I figure out this whole customizing thing, I'll put the "story" out there.

For a younger perspective on cruising, check out our Lagoon 380 Blog. We are newlyweds and spent our Honeymoon as live-aboards. We sailed our boat from Virginia to Australia and have loads of pictures and video on our site. Check it out if you like...

Are you suggesting that we are old?



Just kidding of course. We have had your Blog bookmarked for some time and check it on a semi-regular basis.

I was never old until my teenage daughter started pointing it out to me.

Mine is www.changingspots.net
The boat is a Leopard 40. It starts with getting ready to go cruising. It moves on to outfitting, cruising the US East coast, then the Carib to the Virgins, Grenada, Trinidad, the Manamo river in Venezuela, and on to Panama.

San Francisco, feeding the cruising kitty by doing what he did before, looks like. Good idea, cruising kitties need feeding :-)
