HTML Frustration

I have been blogging for close to one year and absolutely love it. It has become a fantastic hobby for me, something that I really enjoy and take great pride in.  Something that frustrates me, though, is learning HTML.  I know some basics (I am self-taught) however, this isn’t something that seems to come too naturally to me… or perhaps I’m just not putting in enough time.  

When I see other girls’ blogs, I can’t help but wonder how they got their pictures positioned like that, how did they create such a cool collage or where on earth can I learn to do that.  I feel that since starting my blog, it has come a long way, and my layout is better than ever, I find it pleasing to the eye, etc.  However, there are certain things I want to do, things I want to learn, but it all seems so difficult.  I google HTML learning sites frequently, use other bloggers’ ‘Source’ to try and teach myself how to do certain things, but it just doesn’t always work out… or at least, it isn’t as easy as I wish it was.

Like anything, a beautiful end result takes work, and effort, and that’s something I’m willing to do but I’m somewhat at a loss of where to start, and how to get there.  So my fellow blogging friends, where did you learn your HTML?  Are you still learning?  Do you wish your skills were better or are you quite satisfied with what you know?  

Lastly, I’d love to hear your suggestions for my blog.  What could I do to make it more pleasing to the eye?  How can I make it easier to navigate?  And what do you personally like to see on a blog?

PS – Does anyone know sign language?  (hehe)
