The Muffin Got a Makeover!

I've been putting it off for a while, but I finally treated her to a spa day. The Muffin officially has a new outfit--a gorgeous three-piece ensemble, otherwise known as a three-column template. It was not an easy task! This old girl is still in FTP Blogger Beta, so I had to create the template from scratch--no easy push-button publishing here. It caused me an html headache, but it was worth it.

I had a lot of help from a fantastic site: Pam Blackstone's Random Bytes. If you are still using Blogger Beta, you should definitely check out this post on building a three-column blogger template. Of course, it's from 2006! I think we're probably the only ones still using the old system. I love having it connected to the WOW! site though, and hope that someday Blogger will figure out a better way. Until then, we just have too many published posts to risk switching.

Here's what The Muffin looked like yesterday:

And here's what she looks like today: (Well, obviously, you are viewing it.)

I haven't viewed it on all browsers--I only use Firefox and Safari on a Mac--so your feedback is truly appreciated. Does it look good on your browser? Is anything broken?

I'm still tweaking things here and there, and I'd love to know what you think.
