Blog edits

Hey I widened margins to make wider. Looks good to me but can you all see this okay? Does your screen allow you to see my blog as usual, but wider? Let me know as I want to be sure you see what I see. Peace.....


  1. I'm with Nit. Looks peachy.

  2. I can see it all great. How did you widen it??

  3. Looks good to me, girl! I enjoyed the pics below...I can't even imagine seeing the pyramids every day as I drive down the road...too cool.

    Hope all is well with you guys!


  4. I found this online and followed it to widen my blog:

    Before making any changes to your template be sure to save your original template to your hard drive in case you make a mistake.

    You can widen your text area but first you will have to increase the size of your template width.

    1. Log into Blogger.
    2. From you dashboard click on "layout".
    3. Click on "edit html"
    4. Search (Ctrl + F) for "width"

    You will most like find that it has any number from 650 to 850 for the header, outer-wrapper, and max width. You will want to change all of these numbers to the same number which will determine how wide your template will be. A good size is 850-900.

    5. Continue to search for widths that are in the 650 - 850 range and change them to 850(or whatever width you like).

    6. Search for "width" again but this time we are going to change the "main" and "sidebar" wrappers. These two together must not be greater than the size of the entire width and we must leave some room for padding as well.

    For example, if your total width is 850 then your sidebars should be about 240 and the main column 590. That leaves plenty of "extra" space for padding and such.

    7. Once those changes are made preview the template and if it is to your liking then SAVE!

  5. Cool, I think I'll give it a try. Looks good!

  6. I think it looks great! I can see everything, and it makes a big difference to me.

    Thanks for the "How-To" Lesson. Now I just need to figure out how I can back up my blog to my hard drive. LOL!

  7. looks good to me AND I've got vista!! so I think that you should be ok!!
