Figuring out HTML and CSS on your blog is never easy. Especially for the newbie blogger out there. Luckily, there are a lot of sites and blog posts out there like this one that can help you out. For this blog post, I was inspired because it took me forever to revamp my site recently. 

I kept trying to figure out where in my HTML my main body text code was and why it would not work when I kept trying to change the code.
