Anyway, HTML is okay, and we generally get along fine. CSS is a little more hazy, but with a good tutorial I'll figure it out. XML...Well, I have never gone there. And apprently Blogger likes to use XML.
So if I won't make my spiffy blog by myself, and Sak has zero interest in programming webpages (he does the one for our church, so I guess that's enough for him), I have three options:
1) Status Quo - Forget a fancy-pants template and focus more on blog content! Content is key!
2) Harass Friend E to do it for me. He's a programmer by trade, and he owes me a birthday present.
3) Pay someone else to do it. Which would be good and all, except the $100+ prices most designers have scares me a bit.
What should I do? Maybe I can just find a coder, not a designer. I'll just dump a bunch of graphics to the coder, and they put it together like my idea picture above? Would that be cheaper? Or maybe I should just stop being lazy and learn how to do it myself?
