Some blogging advice needed...UPDATED

I'm dabbling in the world of blog design...dabbling, meaning learning by a lot of trial and error. 

So...a while back, I thought I'd be cool...download a nice blogger template that I found online...and voila - you have my current blog design.

But as is the case with many things in my life (furniture arrangement, handbags, shoes, hairstyles), I like to change quite often and now I don't know how to un-do the once super cute to me template so that I can possibly use one of the handy dandy templates that blogger now offers.  And add a little customization.  Still working on learning how to do that...

So...if anyone knows how I can get rid of this downloaded template...and return to any kind of Blogger template, I would be forever grateful if you would share this with me.

And I know I copied some stuff into the HTML watch-a-ma-call-it...but I don't know if I can just delete all of that or what?  I guess I could use my trial & error method...so if I disappear...please let me know.

Although that could be difficult, I guess...


CRISIS TEMPORARILY AVOIDED...Have I ever mentioned that I'm not a very patient person?

Hmm... I've never really messed with the HTML template, and since Blogger has changed things, I'm probably not the best {so don't trust my word too much!}, but I believe there should be a button somewhere around there about reverting to the origianl template? I usually go through thecutestblogontheblock.com. It's much easier, as you just copy the code into a widget in the template design. Good luck, though!

My blog is ugly and unorganized for this exact reason

I am clueless and not yet motivated to carve out time to self teach

that is all

Is the template you have now different than what you were mentioning? I like the pink and I like your coffee cup design at the top.
This morning I spent hours trying to choose a background for my blog. I wanted to be cool and use my own picture. I had no idea how hard it would be to do this without having my writing become transparent. For now I am satisfied..or semi-satisfied, until I have a few more hours to kill.
