Create a new blog problem and issue

Two things kinda related when users create a new blog on our site. (Using Blogs MU theme for main site)

Existing logged in user: After clicking the submit button the user is taken to kind of a naked screen with no theming or stylilng, just the sidebar and footer raw html. I can't remember where it should be taking the user. The blog DOES get created. What's happening here?

New user registering and setting up a new blog: Should the Congratulations message and info be displayed here? (above the entire header of the site?)

You can try it under > Support > Get a Free Blog > ......

Thanks for looking into this weirdness.
