well, it wasn't all that hard.
i now have two blogs melded to look like one, which means i can keep my audio entries separate and cataloged and still be part of a unified whole AND i've got my photo gallery which isn't as smooth as i want because i have to farm out the images to photobucket (or any other host, just because of storage limitations), but otherwise you can get it all HERE.
and i'm learning so much!
helpful hint: download your blogger templates and modify them in a good text editor and then stick them back up. it will save you HOURS of sadness.
