I wish I could draw, than I could post cartoons too! And I see you've finally progressed to a three-column template (as usual, I did before you!).Seriously, I like it.
Long story short, the last time I tried to make my template 3 columned: I had to export my blog, create a new account, clone it, then swap urls. Blogger made it as simple as point-and-click now, so I finally have 3 columns. Viva las tres!
You should try to draw some cartoons, it can't go as badly as my foray into three columns.
If your comment is too long, break it into multiple comments and post them all.
