One of My Favorite Quotes...

“The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”

Created a three column Blogger and added a new header/banner

Things are changing and hopefully for the better. Every time I come across a three column blog, I think to myself and always say that I got to do something like that. But then reality sank in, I don’t have the time to tinker with this blog or even read the endless supply of directions from the hundreds of blogs covering this subject.

Then one day, yesterday, I came across Blogger Buster and its instructions. After reading it and giving it some thought, I truly believed I can do it. The instructions given were probably the best I’ve seen. Here, see for yourself…

I basically followed it and adjusted when needed to fit my needs. I wanted two right sidebars instead of the left and right sidebar that the directions stated. And boy did it work. I finished the blog adjustments in no time. It was a lot easier and faster than I thought. Now that I got it completed, it looks great. Thanks to Amanda’s post!

Now that my blog has increased its width because of the added column, I needed a new header because it was too small. Instead of just using the same design, I decided to create a new header/banner to set off this new look.

Here’s the old/original header for Communicating Ideas... with a length of 900 pixels.

Now here’s the new header for Communicating Ideas, can also see being used right now... with a length of 1020 pixels.

I’m pretty happy right now, but there are other things I need to do to improve this blog. But, I’ll leave it at that. I need other topics to write about to keep this blog rolling...
