II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

ignorance is (SO NOT) bliss

...when it comes to computers! I can NOT stand spending (wasting) HOURS sitting here at my computer trying to figure out something that I KNOW is probably a simple task...but because I am SO ignorant about these complex machines (who I SWEAR have a mind of their own)...I can't figure it out for the life of me!
What I want to do is this: I want to create some kind of "picture" where 2 pictures are side by side (before & after). I don't want to post them one after the other....I want them to be beside each other. Does anyone know how to do that? I know it can be done because almost everyone who does P90X posts their before and after pictures and they are side-by-side--almost like a document of their own. Anyway, please pass along the knowledge if you know...I'd sure appreciate it.
Also, I'd really LOVE to change the background of my blog to something cute and fun and funky like most of you all have...but I am TOOOOOO scared I'll lose everything like the last time I tried it! I decided right then that plain black was plenty "cool" for me! :o)

OK, if you want the pics posted side by side on blogger, make sure that when you upload the pictures that you select "None" under "Choose a Layout: - then you can position the pictures right next to each other. OR there's a longer version to make one big picture out of 2, which is done in "Paint" (under your computer's Accessories). Let me know if you want directions to that.

If you DON'T want to lose all of your gadgets, DON'T use Pyzam. It took me forever to get that stuff back - which is why I haven't changed mine in so long. Teresa mentioned that she uses thecutestblogontheblock.com - maybe you'd find something there? If you find a good site w/ blogger layouts, let me know.

I like your blog layout. But I know I want to change mine too. I am bored of blogger layouts. I am going to look at the website suggested on the comment above.

Hmmmm.....maybe I need to invest in a lock for my door! I do not want him sleeping in there ALL night but I will settle for a few hours of privacy. Maybe I should just let him and Cooper sleep together and keep each other up crying all night!

Ugh. Aggravating! I can't give you any good advice on this one, but I can tell you - I really like Typepad. Super simple. I know you can jazz up your pages, but I don't know if you could transfer all your existing stuff.

Anywho - can't wait to see the pictures! You worked your butt off ... literally. HA!

I like your new colors. But...seriously on pyzam.com or thecutestblogontheblock.com they give you step by step instructions and you could so do it. As far as loosing anything. You don't have anything to loose...the only thing I have ever lost is my link list of other blogs and you don't have one. I have never ever lost my posts in all the times I have changed my layout. Give it a try...but if it doesn't work...don't blame me! LOL!!!!

Girl, as much trouble as I've had with my blog I am in NO WAY going to be able to help with this one. Except I CAN say that there are some VERY cute designs over at the cutestblogontheblock. After I added all my links back (from messing it up myself, not because of cutestblogontheblock), I switched over to one of their templates and didn't have a problem. Good luck!
I'm still working on making myself a new header. I have spent DAYS on my blog design and STILL don't have it the way I want it!
