How To Install Your Custom Blog Design

First: Thank you for using my blog design!

Second: These are instructions for a Custom Blog Design. I will email you the appropriate image files and html code as indicated in these steps. Please refer to your email when following these directions. Your blog design can be installed without saving or changing any image files. They have been sent to you for ease in future changes that you may wish to make.

Important info about sidebar items (widgets): I have added many widgets into the template to avoid your sidebar items from being deleted. Please still save your widget list or special links, photos, lists, etc prior to installing blog design just in case. Widgets included in your design are:
profile
"about me" html box
blog archive
blog roll
10 images
3 text boxes

3 link lists
3 text lists
8 html/java
