I have settled on Connections theme; I have the fewest objections with it. I don't want to do a lot of customizing, in fact I have no idea how to, but I would like to change the phrase "no comments" to "add a comment". Why on earth would the designer put something so off-putting on the blog? I think it is discouraging people from commenting. I get about 100 hits a day and I think most of them are from people who have never been to a blog before but I suspsect would make a comment if they knew it could be done.
So, is it easy to make this one small change? Do I have to upgrade to CSS. I will if necessary but the thought of it scares me.
Actually I would also like to have a "contact us" thing that when you click it opens a blank email with your address in it, like from a website. I saw this question asked before and the answer was it can't be done. But I saw it on another blog, a scrapbooking one, using the Thirteen theme. Of course I asked the owner and she had no idea how to do it. She was even more techno-illiterate than me.
