Happy Square Root Day


I want a three column blog and I want it NOW

If you are a regular visitor you'll notice things are lookin' a little wonky around here.  I have followed directions from several places now on how to convert my blog to three columns.  Now I Need Escalation!

Uh, hello people?  I've got things to say and instead of writing I'm stuck digging through html code playing with numbers and stuff.  I realize that it is Square Root Day but give me a break!

(SCREEEEEECH ... what's that you say?  You've never hear of Square Root Day?  Search your inner geek friends!  3/3/09, get it?)

I may be blonde, but I consider myself fairly intelligent and I understand the basics of html.  

It is true that the recent high pitched screaming in our home has permanently damaged the hearing in my left ear, but I am certain that I have at least four functioning mommy brain cells left and at least one of them should be able to figure this out.

If you have a brain cell to spare, please lend it to me.  I'll give it back as soon as I get my third column where it is supposed to be.    

 Happy Square Root Day - did you find my hidden riddle?  Aren't I clever?

    I run a 3 column template on my private tech blog. One place to get some examples for blogger is freetemplates. Just search for 3 column templates and take a look at some of the examples.

    Good luck.

    I've changed my blog template a few times, but I was never crazy about the 3 columms. I'm no help, anyway, since I'm so NOT tech savvy! I can barely copy and paste!

    I want a 3 column too, but HTML scares me. When I try to use it weird things happen.

    thanks Dan, I'm just trying to get my existing Minima to go three columns. It sounds like lots of people have had trouble so I'm not alone!

    I'm in the "I wanna do this, too" crowd. If you ever figure it out, please pass along the wisdom!

    gotcha! I'm going to consult someone and blog about it - give myself some street cred. LOL

    Hi ~ I had someone turn my blogger 2 column into a 3 column for a really reasonable price. Really. DM me on Twitter if you want the link!

    The worst thing about participating heavily in social networking/new media is the need to constantly learn more about web design. Even at a low level - like taking an entire day to figure out Wordpress is only "terrific" if you download it and pay someone to host your blog. I thought I was going to cry!

    Totally get it. Good luck and be sure to share what you find so that others might be free.

    I don't want three columns any more. I want tabs. I need tabs. I MUST HAVE TABS!!!

    Of course, I don't actually have time until Share a Story is over to do anything sensible about acquiring tabs, but maybe a good fairy will bring some. In case you have magical connections, five would be nice, and instant is a necessity. No fooling around with that ridiculous html stuff - they should just appear at the top of my blog.
