I had this idea for a page full of blog teasers that looked like a newspaper: each blog is a right-justified paragraph of content with a title, linked to a full-page version. The columns go vertically, as tall as each one needs to be, not in a grid. And interspersed at random intervals is an advertisement.
I’ve got a half-built version at [url=http://cityofnewbabbage.online/drupaltest/blog-archive]blog-archive[/url]. Part of the problem is that some of the images and links people put in their blogs will blow out the widths of the columns (and in some browsers make it unreadable). Will need to concentrate on that.
