Tech Tip: Blogger Design Templates


One of the best things about blogging software is that it allows you to experiment with the look-and-feel of your blog separately from the content. So, you can add content to a blog, while also having the freedom to experiment with the design at the same time. In Blogger, there are a variety of templates you can choose from and then customize by choosing the color scheme, background image, etc.


To access your blog controls, you can click on the Design link in the top navbar, or go to Blogger.com and click on the design options menu, and choose theme; you can also access the theme options from the left-hand sidebar of your blog dashboard.


Click the Customize button to see the different themes. There are about a dozen different themes to choose from. Then, within each theme, you can choose different customizations like the color scheme, the background image, and (for some themes) the sidebar layout and width.



For example, you can click on Background to choose a background image and a color scheme. Click on the arrow by the background image to browse through the different image options, and you will also find the option there to upload your own background image.




Blog post. To finish up this Tech Tip, experiment until you find a design you want to use for your blog. Then, write a blog post where you let your readers know that you have chosen a new design, and you can say a few words about how you came up with this design. That might encourage your readers to try redesigning their own blogs! Make sure to include the phrase "Tech Tip: Blogger Template" in your blog post title and also use "Tech Tip" as the label on the post; then you can do the Declaration.
