    Too bad the blog doesn't have the same look as the main page.
    It looks like a totally different site.

    You should do some of your "creations" on the main page and
    get rid of all the talk about having a pleasant experience and
    the fact that it's your first site, etc. Give people a taste of
    your creations right away ... make them interested to see more.

    With Wordpress, you need to find the CSS files and start customizing.
    It takes a little bit to figure it out, but it can be done.

    When you view the blog HTML source, you can see where it's looking
    for the CSS file:
    http://bw-online.co.uk/blogger/wp-co...-1-1/style.css

    Looking at that CSS file, you can see where the background images
    and such are found. You need to change those paths to the images
    you now have for your main page background, colors, etc.

    Make a copy of the original CSS file first, so you can get it back if needed.

    It takes some experimenting and playing-around, since the page widths are
    also different. You'll need to change some page sizing also. With all of this
    customizing, you'll learn a lot about CSS (I guess that's a good thing).
