On the sidebar

I've linked to "The Book Thread" on the sidebar, so it's easily accessible. Do you think that the font for it is too small, or is it fine as it is?

The type is a bit small and its sandwiched in between two other items, so I had to look pretty hard to see it. (And, considering your blog entries mentioning it will be archived soon enough, you want people to be able to see it!) You might want to consider making the font bigger, and enlarging the space above and below it. Thanks for asking us!

Ok, so I made the font bigger, so it's pretty obvious, what it is.

How do I get white space around it?

I've tried using the br tag, but that seems to break the sidebar. (No pun intended at all.

Ok here is a little piece of code that should help (I had to post it on my server, since blogger wouldn't let me post it here):

Thanks, Robert!

What do I put in that section of code to make the background of the button white?

(Can you tell I'm totally HTML challenged?) =)

Looks good.

background-color: white;

Also, not sure why the word THREAD is getting bumped down. You might just try taking the br tag out completely.

Gil's All Fright Diner! I love that book! It's so funny!

Have you read In Company of Ogres by the same author?

Oh- the question was about advice? Um, sorry, I'm techlit challenged. I can copy, paste, and google. Past that I'm at a loss.
