    I can't seem to figure out how to increase the left side margin of blog posts, i.e. the content is too close to the edge.

    Try this...

    Open up your style.css (Go to Appearance, then Editor. It should come up with style.css in the box.

    Find the following code:
    .entry, .non-wp-entry {
    clear:both;
    font-size:116%;
    line-height:1.6em;
    margin-bottom:1em;
    overflow:hidden;
    padding:15px 0 5px;
    }

    Change the last line to this: padding 15px 0 5px 10px;

    The padding parameters are like this: top bottom right left

    You had nothing on the one for left. You can change the values to what you think looks nice.

    Good luck!

    @mitzi_easmg: Do not edit the theme itself. First create a child theme for your changes. Or install a custom CSS plugin. In the meantime, try posting on the theme's dedicated forum: http://www.aquoid.com/forum
    You should get a faster & more informed response there.

    @Augustin56: Please do not encourage people to edit theme files directly. At best, they will lose all of their changes when they update the theme.

    Please ignore both of the answers above as they don't properly understand Suffusion and its options.

    1: Update to the current version of the theme you are not running 4.4.7 which is the current version.

    2: In Suffusion Options > Backend > Custom Includes > Custom Styles enter

    .entry, .non-wp-entry {padding-left:10px;}

    Save the settings and all will be fine. These changes are preserved when upgrading the theme and as a result a Child Theme is NOT necessary.

    You will get better support if as @esmi said you ask on the dedicated support forum
