man, i think i more than really like the new blogger templates and options. see how cute my blog is now? still nerdy (thank you, book background!), but it looks way better than my home-grown, cobbled together mess of html. i never was very good at coding.
so if you are still over on typepad, and part of the reason you stayed was because typepad had great looking templates and options, now you know you don't have to. blogger is free, easier than ever to customize, and i totally didn't make any money shilling for them just now. in the few years i've been blogging over here, i've had nothing but good experiences. you should move into my bloggy neighborhood!
