I really like the look of some blog templates that I've seen, but I don't know what the format is called so I don't know what to search for (I'd like a tutorial on how to make my own... not just templates that I can download).
Examples of what I'm looking for can be seen here and here. Basically, the blog has a bottom edge (I guess the main text area resizes as you add posts?) and a footer where you can add images and whatnot.
Does anyone know what this type of layout is called and where I can find a tutorial on how to make my own?
