OK, Now I’ve added color…but it was supposed to only wrap the border and not cover the entire blog. It appears that I have to “border off” some separate elements of the page and then make sure their corresponding backgrounds are white, so you, the reader, can actually read the blog with some ease, while having the splash of blue on the edges of the page.
I’m still looking for the border gif that my website designer originally used along with the blue color. If I can’t find it, I’ll just use the blue color.
I’ll keep experimenting.
