8:25 PM — Update!
Hopefully you're more observant than my students and noticed the changes around here. I went with a cleaner style that also allowed names of recent posts to be listed. Also, for the first time I figured out how to allow people to leave comments! Not sure if it wasn't available for free before, or I just didn't see it, but here it is now. :) I'm starting to like how this all works, especially since I know a little bit about .css style sheets.
