These blog we get here for free are pretty basic, but we can treat them like a fixer-upper kinda like renovating a house.
I've changed the font, and then enlarged the font when Ipodmomma said she was having problems reading it, and you can do this too in template section of your blog. I did have to experiment to figure it out, and I don't think I can explain how I did it exactly--sorry.
I also added a weather sprite. I noticed that Ipodmomma had one so I click on hers and sure enough it took me to a sight and I was able to get one for my very own. It's even connected in with our own Madera air port weather station, which is just a couple of miles down and around the corner from my house. If you want your own you can click on my weather sprite, and it's free, and you can even pick out which sprite you want too. I picked out the red headed sprite, with the long bangs parted on the same side I do. (In my profile picture you'll notice I took my picture in a mirror so my part is reversed.)
At the bottom of my blog you will notice a counter, I got it from Merle's blog. I clicked on hers and yes it took me to another sight where I signed up for free for mine. Want your own? Click on mine.
All these renovations are of course free! I love a good bargain and your can't beat free!
