OK, so I'm not quite done yet tonight.
I tried to get adventurous with my blog and fiddled with the HTML. Although I was able to add a couple things I wanted to add (like a new counter and the fun mood detector, and headers for them) and delete one thing I wanted to delete (the old, non-working counter), in the process, I shifted the whole blog to the left. I feel certain it is the gray footer sitting squarely right on the bottom that has caused this, but I can't figure out how to rectify it. Any expert bloggers with suggestions, please add a comment to this post!
Thank you, and good night.
