Blogging blankly!

I have always admired all of those pretty blogs out there...
but I am not overly techno savvy ( my family often find me VERY amusing!).
I love the way bloggers refresh their look, add things....sigh.
Cardygirl felt veeeeeery boring in comparison.
(I am not that keen on music though!)
So, for Christmas I was given the book "Blogging for Bliss" by Tara Frey.
Great book, heaps of ideas...quite scary really!
Well this afternoon,with DD's confident help, I have waded in...
lost my footing on a blogbank a couple of times...almost lost in the swirling watersof blogworld...
LOL...and I have titivated my boring old blog...
what do you think?
I am having trouble with the header...need to glamorize it a bit...
do I need to do this in picassa...I am going under again!
Any helpful suggestions welcome!
Addit: A short time later...
How does the new header look?????

Thanks for the recommendation of the blogging book. I do feel I have much to learn about how this all works. Fun to read about someone gardening as we are knee deep in snow!
