Don't worry, I'm only going to devote this one entry to the geekery of my blog design. Indulge me.
Yesterday I was trying to do....something that I honestly don't remember, and I (wait for it) DELETED a simple little button that I had made linking to my other site, my blogroll, contact info, etc. I had made the button myself, with my good friend Mr. Google holding my hand (so trust that it was EXTREMELY GHETTO), but I remember it being HARD and I don't wanna.
I whined on twitter that I needed some geek help. Twitterers helped me! I love the interwebs. And people. I heart people. @BradOlson actually found my deleted button on a cached version of this site, but by that time I had started lusting after tabbed browsing.
So. I set up a test blog and started fussing with this template. I had to wonk around the margins a lot to get it to fit my stuff, which, in theory, it did. Then I uploaded it here, and it did not. Reading through the template (which by no means do I fully understand, I'm a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants-learn-only-enough-CSS-to-ruin-my-blog type of girl) it looked like it should look how I wanted but it TOTALLY DID NOT. Everything was shifted just-enough-to-bug-me to the right, and my photos were all getting cut off, and GAH.
The super awesome and incredibly hawt MommyMelee pointed me in the direction of Firebug, a Firefox add-on which OMG LIFE SAVING WEB TOOL. It breaks down all of your html/CSS/etc and you can make changes to it and see what effect it has and yay! If you ever want to play around with your blog, I HIGHLY recommend using this tool.
Now I feel extremely accomplished and also? Awesome. Because look! I have tabs! CLICK ON MY TABS! MIRACLES! And (while I certainly used a template, I'm not quite that awesome) I DID IT MAHSELF.
What do you think?
