Okay, so it's no surprise to me that most of the stuff I put in my sidebar doesn't fit. However, I'm trying to figure out how to solve this problem. I went into my layout and clicked on the Edit HTML tab. It brought back memories to the good ol' days before Blogger got so doggoned user-friendly. Anybody else remember those days? Back when you had to type miles and miles of code into the template, only to have your edits null and void because you forgot to put < or > or even /a at the end? Oh yes. I actually sort of miss those days. Not because entering code is so delightful (though secretly I do sorta enjoy it), but rather because it reminds me of my earlier college days when several of my school friends owned and updated blogs. Most of them are too busy for it now.
But I digress...
Anyway, I was fooling around in the Edit HTML area, trying to adjust my sidebar width so that everything could fit into it. Most of the time, I could get the pictures to fit, but then my followers area would be messed up: whichever bloggers were unfortunate enough to be the rightmost (probably a new word I just coined) followers would only have half their icons showing. Additionally, sidebar text often drifted off into oblivion, as well. When I finally corrected those problems (by increasing the sidebar width), my entire sidebar was pushed down several inches. I'm not usually the type of person to ask for help, but I'll humble myself on this occasion. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears. I just hope that whatever I try doesn't delete my blog or something. I mean, after all, I just had my 3-year blogoversary. The blog and I celebrated quietly at home.
