Default My Blog Has Appearance (Ugly)...

I fear that my poor understanding of Wordpress will be my downfall, as my current blog is a little... diffuse. I'm not even sure how to get it organized. Could I please have some help so I may produce high-quality game aids that don't hurt my readers' eyes?

This mostly just seems to be a Wordpress Theme issue. My advice would be...
  • From your blog's Dashboard, go to "Appearance--> Themes and click the "Add New" button
  • Scroll through the hundreds of Themes there, clicking the "Preview" button on each you find interesting to see what your blog looks like with that theme
  • Pick the one you like the best and click "Install" to make that your active theme

Well, it looks better now! Thanks! :D

Now how do I make sure it's indexed? ._.

Cool!

One thing-- I see you're using the Escutcheon theme. Notice at their example site, how the individual posts are listed by date... could you find the option to do something like that in your Dashboard as well? Right now, your main page is the contact form, and there is no menu to access any of your posts.

By "indexed," do you mean shows up in Google searches? 'Cause Google will (eventually) take care of that on their own, or you can submit it here.

If you mean "indexed" like "shows up in the weekly GURPSDay listings," those directions are here.
