Truth be known, I've been a little jealous lately of those of you who are able to use beautiful, magazine-y Wordpress themes like Thesis. There's no way I'm switching, though. There's way too much involved. I feel a lot better now that I've found "Magazine Style Template Red" by Jackbook (right, and on page 12 of the book). If Baby Cheapskate gets a new look, you'll know what inspired it! Let's just hope I remember to back up my template first.
