    You can rename it to whatever you want by using the Links_Manager.

    But if you look at the layout, I already have the word "Links" and i wanna keep it at that. Besides the word "blogroll" is oversized and aligned wrongly. Is there any way to rectify it?

    You can't remove it, you can only edit/rename it. As far as the size etc, that's usually handled through the styles.css for the various themes.

    (BTW, I agree that the whole "Blogroll" thing is arrogant, pompous self-aggrandizement on the part of the wp dev team; then again, they're doing this for free, what do you want?)

    Depends on the theme. Which one are you using?

    Fading Flowers. But I edited it to my own liking. Should I paste the entire style sheet here? It's quite long...

    No way! :)
    Always use http://pastebin.com or some similar "bin" - then post back with the URI.

    Around line 61 you have this:
    h2 {
    text-align: right;
    display: block;
    margin-top: 10px;
    padding-right: 10px;
    color: #660033;
    font: bold 14px Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;
    }

    I swear it's not my code :)
    You have 2 options - if you don't use h2 in any other place, edit it to be like the rest of headings.
    If you have h2 in other places than your sidebar, then use something like:
    #menu h2 {
    blah;
    blah
    }

    I changed it to h3, but the font turns out big and ugly, even though i changed the font size.

    That's because you don't listen :)
    Just do it as I said! the h2 around the Blogroll is generated by the WP so doesn't matter what are you doing with the h3...

    Oh no, I'm such an idiot! But just changing to h3 doesnt change the font size and all. What should I edit then?

    h2 {
    text-align: right; <== DELETE THIS
    display: block;
    margin-top: 10px;
    padding-right: 10px;
    color: #660033; <== THIS
    font: bold 14px Verdana, Arial, sans-serif; <== THIS
    }

    Change the color to black [#000000]
    Change the 14px to something smaller
    Play - trial and error... that's how we all learned, LOL
