BlogIt will work with any skin. However, some skins provide some extra 
visual candy that works with BlogIt -- things like formatting blog 
attributes like Author, Date,  Tags, etc.

1] Follow steps 1-4 on the BlogIt page in the "Download and Install"
2] Add the markup in the section "Main Blog Summary Page", and change
