Honestly I'm not sure WHAT I'm looking for other than some suggestions.
Right now Im using the Liquorice theme and I'm pretty happy with it, but someone directed me to a blog the other day that had something that I thoughtw as pretty cool (sorry I dont still have the address).
But he had what looked like, a "frame: around his "posts" and the text and images in the frame were all static, but the center showed the blog posts which chanbged every day.
Unfortunately i didnt get to ask the author about it. but if you have any ideas i'd appreciate it.
