  1. Hi Jim, I am writing from New Zealand. I am about to create a blog page and I am new to the whole thing. I really like your blog page template. It is wide and very clean. Could you please kindly tell me what Browse Theme you are using. Word Press has a number of prepared themes for a new blogger. I presume you are using Word Press. If you could tell me the name of the Browse Theme, I would be much obliged. Blessings. Andrew

  2. Thanks, Andrew. I use Blogger, not Word Press, and the template is a modification of a Blogger template called Minima. I've used it for some time and have made many tweaks over that time.

    Good luck!

  3. Thank you Jim for your help. I suppose I should look into using Blogger instead of Word Press. Much appreciated. Andrew

  4. Hi again Jim, This is Andrew from New Zealand. I am sorry if I am being a nuisance. I am almost getting there starting my blog-page now signing in with Blogger and using Minima. But I can't seem to centralise my header photo. You header photo "ONE ETERNAL DAY" is placed right on the center of the page. I seem to get mine on the right side of the page. I can't find the place to edit "centralize". Can you help?

  5. Andrew, It's been a long time, but I think this is it: Go to "Layout" and then to "Edit HTML": scroll down until you see this and see if making yours look the same does the trick:
    /* Header

    #header-wrapper {
    margin:0 2% 10px;
    border:0px solid $bordercolor;

    #header {
    margin: 5px;
    border: 0px solid $bordercolor;
    text-align: center;

    #header-inner {
    background-position: center;
    margin-$startSide: auto;
    margin-$endSide: auto;
