I simply got tired of the other look and wanted to change. I do that from time to time. Even though I believe only 3 or 4 people look at this thing, I was frustrated that I couldn't view any comments while I was at work (when I do receive them). The new layout allows for that...at least until work decides to block blogger again.
I should just learn HTML and creat my own site, but blogger makes this too easy. Glad I copied the previous template so I didn't have to retype all the links and poker blogs into the new template. That saved me a lot of time!
Hope everyone enjoys.
