As you can see now, I played around with the layout of the blog. Let me know what you think.
Two items are of interest:
1) I figured out how to do the archive thingy on the right-hand side of the page! So, it's no longer super-impossible to find old blog posts.
2) I want the blog to run from the left of the page to the right of the page, but they insist on adding a large empty spot on the left and right sides. Why is there a large empty spot everywhere? Get with the game, empty spot! Do something interesting! Don't just take up space uselessly!
