Layout distorted, posts out of order

    For the past month or so the main page of my blog has been completely messed up. The sidebar has moved to the bottom, part of 1 post appears on the right side with the other part mid-way through the blog, and the posts are out of order. I've read forum topics about changing your settings so WordPress will correct problems with XHTML code and then going through the posts, making a minor change to each, and re-saving. I've tried this to all the posts I've made since the problem started; the problem persists. It also seems to be ignoring changes I've made to settings.... for example, I tried to change the "Reading" settings to show only 1 page (so I could evaluate which one is the problem more easily), but when I view the blog, it still lists tons of posts. Help please?
    My blog is http://artstuffbyk.wordpress.com/

    I know nothing of codes, so I haven't tried inserting anything other than pictures from my hard drive and links.

    The blog I need help with is artstuffbyk.wordpress.com.

    If you have been copying and pasting text from elsewhere without using either icon 5 or icon 6 in Row 2 of the visual editor, please see here http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#pasting-text

    Go to Settings > Writing and select “ ___ WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically” and then scroll down and click “Save Changes.”

    Posts > All Posts, change all your latest posts to Draft, click Update, change them back to Published, click Update again. (You can edit all of them at once: tick the square in front of their titles then select Edit from the Bulk Actions dropdown and click Apply.)

    You are awesome! I must not have gone back through enough posts or missed one. Saving to all to draft then published using Bulk Actions worked perfectly and saved so much time. Thanks!
