I decided to mix things up a little bit...and change the entire layout of the blog. I wanted a wider space to work with and the old style, as clean as it was, didn't allow for a wider area. That's Blogger for you.
With the new layout, we can upload larger pictures next to the text without cramming words on the side. Also, I can upload videos and documents in their full wide-screen state for better viewing.
I'll be tinkering with things here and there for the next few days, so if you have any suggestions, shout them out in the comments.
