I'm having a real issue here.

I'm trying to find a new template to dress up my blog for Mrs. B's 31 days of Halloween (see the button on my right column) and I just can't seem to find anything I like.

What I want is something that says "I'm a witch, but I'm a dude".

What am I gonna do?

I could get ghosts, or pumpkins, or skulls, you know, traditional halloween themes, but I really want something different.

I guess I may have to make one of my own, but how the heck do I do that?

I don't know much about XML, or HTML, or any other code words that mean I can write "code" to make a page that will show up on a computer screen.

The sad part is, I am a computer repair tech, among other things.

I just don't do software. Hardware is my thing. Motherboards, hard drives, processors, ram, you know, that stuff. All the stuff in the box on or next to your desk. Oh and I have a thing for taking apart laptops, I find excuses to tear them open. It's a disease, I swear. (Fortunately I can also put them back together in a functional state again, lol)

But I digress.

I'm still looking, but maybe some of you out there have some ideas for me?

I need all the help I can get.

go to Pyzam and don't look for halloween but look in the Goth stuff. You would be surprised what you might find.

Hey Rayden - thanks for following my blog and posting my button - I'm snagging yours too!

Also check out go to "Layouts" and then "Blogger" and then "Holidays" or just type this link into your browser:

There is some cutesy stuff - but also some spooky stuff too - 17 pages of Halloween layouts!

If you want a personal made one I will give it a try, but the background I made on my page only looks right on firefox it seems :( I think my header is ok so atleast it wasnt a total loss lol So Im not a professional but I offer my help if you want it.
Ok well Im off to pyzam to see what they have, I havent been there in a while and I didnt even know they had blogger layouts!

A couple ideas:

1) Put the fact that you're a dude in your header and/or your bio. :)

2) Go with this layout: and dress it up with a nice banner graphic for your name, and other graphics in your side bar.
