Well... Having a bit of fun trying to sort out the design. I was hoping I could actually remove the blog link itself and just have say lists... on some of the pages as the main section. At least all the pages look as alike as I want the main page has three columns and the rest all have two.
I guess if I edit the HTML itself then I might be able to remove the blog link itself from the other pages. But at least it's looking smart and consistent already.
