How to theme correctly?

Hi,

I’ve installed the blank theme and edited a lot of files in it now. Customized the css, out-commented many things in the .phtml files etc etc.

BUT!

I came to think, this isn’t really the best way to do it, is it? I mean, now there’s an upgrade for the theme but I can’t update, since it’ll overwrite everything I’ve done.

Should I instead just edit on a layer on top of the blank theme or something? Well, not sure.

Should I copy the “blank” folders, rename them to my sitename and keep on hacking away in 1000 different files as I do now?
