Just when I thought I'm stuck with Blogger's default templates when I received good news. Blogger users can now customize their designs. Customize may be an understatement, it's more of, Blogger on steroids.
The new designs are very similar to wordpress templates but offers more functionality in changing layouts, column widths, text colors (less the html coding), all through blogger's gui. Consider this blog, It was sporting a Scribe template for almost two weeks since it was published, and now, look how cool it is. I haven't done any tweaking with columns, headers, and footers yet, but soon, when I have the time. Meanwhile, it's your time to explore the new blogger template designer.
