One common complaint of Blogger over the years has been a lack of professional and customizable themes. Blogger had made the leap to allowing access to the design area for bloggers to customize the Blogger themes easier; however their theme selection still does not offer as many options as WordPress.
One resource on the web is Our Blogger Templates featuring over 170 customizable Blogger template themes. The developer wrote all the themes with ease of use in mind for end users. If you’d rather worry about the business at hand, blogging, and want a break from searching for professional looking themes or researching how to modify a theme then Our Blogger Templates is for you.
Visit Our Blogger Templates and find blog themes via labels or browse through all they have to offer. Like WordPress you can find templates on any category while taken design needs into consideration (number of columns, already set color scheme, if you are monetizing, etc.).
Each template has a page of its features, optional customizations, header image specifications and links to helpful articles regarding template installation and how to change your template without losing any sidebar widgets. You can also see a demo of each template.
“This new XML Blogger template is free but please value our hours of design work by leaving the credit at the bottom of the screen to Ourblogtemplates.com intact. But you can label whatever you want at the blog footer.”
Comments are open on each template page and are great resources as well allowing you to see if any users have had problems using the template. Sometimes there are hints or solutions when a user wanted to do something specific on a particular theme.
My personal favorite at Our Blogger Templates is Simple n’ Sweet. You can create a really professional look in the header, navigation and footer area.
The only downside is that Our Blogger Templates does not appear to have any new templates but due to the options available, bloggers should be able to find the right template for any niche or blogging desire.
If you can’t find the blog template you want, you can find a tutorial to Blogger Template design. The tutorial is an in-depth 12 part tutorial covering everything you need to know to create and modify your owner Blogger template.
In addition to tutorials you can also find a wealth of information on modifying your current Blogger theme and other blogging tips about monetization and using AdSense.
