Blogging Questions

1) How do I create a title for each post? In years past, it seemed like the title was just the top line of my post. Now when I make a post, the title just seems to run on forever (ex: I'd like the title of this post to be "Blogging Questions" not "Blogging Questions 1) How do I create...")

2) When seen at home on my laptop with firefox, the links show up on the upper-right portion of the page. When I view my blog from work on Internet Explorer, the links don't show up until the very bottom right. I know where the html code is in the template thingie on blogger, but I'm not sure how to always keep it in the upper right (no matter which browser is viewing the page).

3) My posts are usually photo-ridden, is there a way to cut down on the number of posts per page? This might be an easy one I can look up myself, but my pages are REALLY long right now, and tons of pictures load that people will rarely, if ever, check out, because they are so far down the page. I think keeping maybe 3 or 4 posts on the front page would be a good number?

4) Picture fun. I actually sort of like the huge pictures I put on the blog, but I don't really like it when the pictures cover up the links. Also, sometimes I would like to size-down the pictures a bit.

5) Frames. I've never been good with frames in html, but I have a wide-screen monitor, and the text of my blog only takes up about 1/3 of the page at most. There is a lot of blank space when I have the window full-screen. The narrow column makes for easy reading, which I like, but I'd either like to make it a little wider, or add some of those nifty freeze-frames, which allow me to keep two background images on either side of the text frozen (not tiled).

Any help is appreciated! I'll be looking into solving these questions myself too, so this post serves as a friendly reminder to yours truly as well as a cry for help to all you blogger-savvy friends of mine out there.

Um, this one is a bit of an odd question. When you go to blogger and Create a Post, it should have a seperate text box above the body of your post that is for the title. If you don't have that box, then you are S.O.L.

@Hoy

I've heard a lot about this girlie chat thing, but I have no clue how one goes about signing up. Or is there an initiation process? I choose to be initiated by Kat, Carmen, and that poison lady who challenges everyone to heads up matches.

@J

I am S.O.L. Weak. Maybe I'll pretend to choose another template, then snipe that html? I don't want to play Frankenstein though, that can have dire consequences.
