I royally messed up my blog design tonight. 

I thought I'd gotten good with some of this HTML stuff so I was trying to create a two column layout. When that attempt failed, I decided I would use a pre-made blogger template and edit it. 

Yeah, I'm not that good. Totally got myself in over my head. 

I've fixed it to the best of my abilities, but I really can't stand using the typical blogger templates.

Who do you recommend for blog design? I'd really like to find someone affordable, but I'm well aware that I need someone who actually knows what they're doing, and I'm willing to pay for design expertise.

Leave me a comment with recommendations, please. 
Help a sista out!
