    Hi Ben, I have been following your step by step tutorial for setting up a blog. First let me say WOW, and thanks a bunch. I watch and pause and go back over multiple times as a I am a complete newbie.Don’t know if you can help me or direct me to a site that can. I was working on the part of installing a instagram widget and now I have a wide light brown strip on the right side of my page next to and over the sidebar.
