Spent a bit of time today playing about with various templates for this blog from: btemplates. They have plenty to choose from but I am still not completely happy with what I have. I may have to resort to playing about with the HTML which was something I was trying to avoid.
I now have the blog talking to twitter and facebook so they will update automatically. It has been a steep learning curve so far but I am enjoying it - time seems to fly by. It's very similar to researching family history where you seem to lose all track of time!
