I'm a teacher librarian & recently started a community based blog for getting boys to read - http://GettingBoysToRead.com. Please send me a friend request if you'd like to network, share ideas, and learn more about getting boys to read.
Right now I am striving to find a 3 column WordPress template for our projected Book of the Year Blog! I think maybe Word Press is way too popular with the tinkerers - there are thousands of templates!!!
Thanks for the offer, and you never know, I may be asking for that help!
