First post, post New Year’s, 2009!
Thank God, for small mercies, like being able to breathe the air of freedom from paperWORK – which is going to be shortlived anyway! But it’s a breather, nonetheless.
Happy New Year, once again!
I held back from posting earlier, because the corrections dragon had fair consumed me, and secondly because of my quirky self wanted a renovation of the workspace here, before making a post. Browsing around for that perfect template helped me learn again, a cardinal law:
Perfect templates, like perfect people, don’t exist. You need to work on getting the perfection. Lol!
So what it really brought me to was a sort of pot of gold during the treasure hunt. A set of valuable web pages, for an HTML code illiterate, and an almost-complete-ignoramus,like me :D. At the end of experimenting them on a couple of test blogs I created, I have almost acquired these grandiose assumptions and delusions of having become a “techie”. Smirk away, dear experts, but I shall enjoy that brief time in the spotlight I have shone on myself, with a singular audience of Me again!!!
As usual I digress.
I wanted to share these links here, so that if there are others as troubled as me, who’d like roomy blog spaces, with three-columns, and quick edit icons, and comment forms embedded below post, which normally does not work with custom templates [other than what blogger gives you when you create a blog], I can assure you that these work.
1. All of bloggers classic templates in 3 columns here :
The problem with these templates is that features like Quick edit [the pencil icon that takes you immediately to edit post] and comment form embedded below post are not visible. You need more codes to work in, which you can take from here.
2. There are three links here. And you can go on from them to others available there for more innovation 🙂
These are all from Blogger Buster, a webpage that has many more interesting widgets and features.
I certainly would recommend these pages. It requires the commitment and patience that only a blogaddict can have, lol, and the fount of patience I discovered from an eternal spring within was a revelation of how much of a blogaddict I have grown to be. [IHM, you really knew what it was all about!!!]
So here it is, the fundas 🙂 It would be better to try it out on a test blog if you have the time and patience and inclination, else you can just save your template and carry on, gently, gently.. 🙂
It’s worth it. Your blog’s worth it 🙂 🙂

P.S. Lots of awards from many of you generous souls, remain to be collected, which I would like to assure you I shall, and also tags to be done. That should keep me occupied for some time, till my quill sharpens itself to spout sense again:)
