Applesauce Oatmeal Cake with Broiled Coconut Topping

This recipe comes from Betty Crocker.  It's delicious and simple to make.  Plus it has applesauce and oatmeal in it. A little added health bonus!  The only thing I would change is maybe a little less sugar next time I make it.  The topping is pretty sweet so I'd think I'd cut back maybe 1/4 cup of sugar.

I have a question to ask and I'm hoping some of you can help me.  I would like to redo my blog and will probably need someone to do this for me.  I'm not a computer wiz by any stretch.  So can you tell me how you all did your sites?  Did you do them yourself or have it done?  If you had it done, who did it for you?  I'd appreciate any help I can get.  Thanks!
