It's dangerous to be at home for extended time - I got so bored, I changed my template.
I have long wanted a change, but hesitated to mess with it, as I feared losing the changes I had made to it.
No problem. First, I saved a copy of the template.
Then, I looked for another template I though would work. I picked this one, because it offered extra room to see the posts.
Then, I cut and pasted the items on the sidebar I wanted to save.
Then, re-publish. I had to Preview it, and make a few small adjustments (like graphic size).
It worked. Hope everybody likes it. I may fool around with it again this summer, when I have more time.
