I've been at it again... hacking my way through CSS and my blog styles.  Here are my thoughts:

I miss the 3 column look, but it had display issues when there were wide pictures in the posts and none of the styles I could choose allowed me to bury the "Archives" section with the exception of this one. 

This feels cleaner than it did before when I was layed out more like http://blogs.msdn.com/jobsblog

I love getting back my "recent posts" section now that blogs.msdn.com allows limited scripting again. 

I'm not sure if I'm sold on the colors.

Like I did before, when I'm done I'll post instructions on how I did all this.   

I'd love to know what you think???
