CSS alignment trouble!

I need the Post box to be top left and the two other boxes to be on the right (doesn't matter which is top).

Currently i'm using the following CSS. I'm guessing my floats and clears are wrong but i'm not sure what they should be?

Thanks in advance!

.blogpost {
	background-color: #FFF;
	float: left;
	width: 70%;
	margin-left: 10px;
	padding: 20px;
	margin-bottom: 10px;
	box-shadow: 0 0 3px #cdcdcd;
	clear: left;
}

.blogrecent {
	background-color: #FFF;
	float: right;
	width: 27%;
	margin-left: 10px;
	padding: 20px;
	margin-bottom: 10px;
	box-shadow: 0 0 3px #cdcdcd;
}
.blogcategory {
	background-color: #FFF;
	width: 27%;
	margin-left: 10px;
	padding: 20px;
	margin-bottom: 10px;
	box-shadow: 0 0 3px #cdcdcd;
	float: right;
}

I changed your padding to percentages and slightly reduced the size of the main column.

Try this code:

<style>
.blogpost {
	background-color: #FFF;
	float: left;
	width: 66%;
	margin-left: 10px;
	padding: 1%;
	margin-bottom: 10px;
	box-shadow: 0 0 3px #cdcdcd;
}

.blogrecent {
	background-color: #FFF;
	float: right;
	width: 27%;
	margin-left: 10px;
	padding: 1%;
	margin-bottom: 10px;
	box-shadow: 0 0 3px #cdcdcd;
}
.blogcategory {
	background-color: #FFF;
	width: 27%;
	margin-left: 10px;
	padding: 1%;
	margin-bottom: 10px;
	box-shadow: 0 0 3px #cdcdcd;
	float: right;
}

</style>
