    I like what Nick Aster did with his blog beyond brilliance http://www.646industries.com/beyond/

    I'd like to replicate this concept for myself in WP.
    I am a brand newbie in WP ; anyone have a idea how to implement this?

    No feeds needed just two manual blogs.

    Thanks

    If you look at his source, he's just using calls to two separate blogs, and absolute positioning to make them appear side by side.

    I couldn't find those references but I will take your word for it.

    How does one set up two blogs in WP ? is that two installs or just two mysql aaccounts?

    I am not a programmer anymore so I need a simple solution.

    You can set up two installs to share the same db. I don't know if that would work for what you want. There are others who post here who know better than I about that sort of thing.

    You could probably just have two categories and run The Loop twice on the index page, calling each category separately. See this post for more info: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/32242
    Add a little CSS to create the two columns and you should be done.
