After spending few hours fighting with CSS and tweaking the layout, finally this blog is up. This is actually my second attempt of blogging, my last blog didn't last long and we'll see how long this one will last.
In case you wonder, I based my blog on the 3-column Minima template, which can be found here. As far as I can see it works fine in IE7, Firefox and Google Chrome.
I have to say I am very impressed with how flexible (read generous) blogger.com is when it comes to customising the look and feel of the blog.
