Ok, so my blog has gone through somewhat of a facelift! :-)
I owe big thanks to a very helpful and knowledgeable gentleman who during the past couple of weeks have taught me a lot about CSS and provided me with his valuable input regarding design & what looks good & better and so on.
You can find his blog here: Terry's Playpen
There are lot of good tips there on how to spiff up your blog.
He also has another blog that's definitely worth a read, and you can find that one here: Paradise Discovered
Thanks so much Terry!!! :-)
