The Design tab in the dashboard lets you change the look and feel of the blog.  The default Theme here is a three column design with links, archives, categories, and more listed on either side of the blog posts that go down the middle.

By clicking the Design tab in the dashboard and clicking the Themes tab under that, you have the opportunity to choose a new theme. Each theme is different in its look and contents. Clicking any of the themes will automatically change your blog design. Click the ‘Visit Site’ button to see your new design.

Each theme has a default set of Widgets. Widgets add special functionality to your blog page. Some widgets can add a calendar, a special link to social networking sites, a text block where you can type whatever you want, etc.  Warning: When you add widgets the first time to your sidebars, they replace the default set already there. If you add any widget, you will also have to add the ones that were already on the page, if you still want them.
