I'm a Dork about How to Blog

I can't figure out how to make my blog look as good as everyone else's. My photos always look dumb - they won't go anywhere except right on top, and the ones of the babies aren't even the same size. Someone told me to do the blog in html, but I can't figure out how to make that work--the "edit html" tab doesn't even work for me.

Argghh!! I'm a beautiful-blog soul, trapped in a dorky blog.

I figured that the pictures were just a different size because you loved one baby more than the others :)

Kathy, I love your blog and exhort you to write more to keep me entertained.

Hey, Kathy, I agree with Anna on one point..just keep writing for now. When school is out and you aren't quite as busy, then I'll show you some of the things I learned and list a few great books that teach lots of tricks. I spent lots of hours trying to figure things out, and you might not want to invest that much time at the moment. :)

Two hints for now, though: When you upload photos, make sure you are selecting one that is full sized, not a thumbnail version.

Also, in the "compose" mode you can move photos around. Just click on it to select, then drag it where you want it.

I prefer the html mode myself, but it takes a little while to get used to what all the symbols stand for. And I'm still just a beginner!

For now......just do what you do best: Write!

Mom- it's okay. Just as long as the picture of my baby (when she comes out) is way bigger than all the rest.
