Bloggiment

I'm trying an experiment to see if I can create my own blog background, so you might see weird changes in the next hour or so...just ignore them. :)
Update: It's an hour later and I did manage to apply a new background, but there are still way too many kinks to work out, so now I'm back to my old template. I think I'm going to have to wait until summer break to really play around with it. At least now I know it's somewhat doable. :)

Update #2: Apparently I'm a glutton for punishment, because I'm going to go back and try some more. So again, expect weird crap all over my page for a little while...or a long while if my stubborn-butt refuses to let up on this lovely time-wasting endeavor.

Update #3: I got my background to work! Clint had to help me, because I am clueless when it comes to editing HTML. I'm not going to stick with this template forever...I'll get bored again in a few months, I'm sure. But at least now I know that I can put in my own graphics and am not limited to the already-created templates online...it makes it a little more personal.

P.S. It's interesting to observe the domino-effect of blogging. One person changes her blog's appearance, then shortly after everyone on that person's blogroll is doing it too. It's a cyber "keeping up with the Jones's" phenomenon. Hey, I'm not claiming to be immune to this--I'm constantly feeling inspired by other blogs and itching to try new things.
