10 Stunning Blogger Templates
Blogger may not be the best publishing platform available online, but there are plenty of users who still call that site their blogging home. One nice thing about it is that it will allow the upload of any template you’ve discovered and want to use. Once you’ve gone through all the themes Google already offers, you’ll probably want to try something new. On top of that, the standard ones aren’t really customized for a certain topic or area of interest. Fortunately, there are plenty of free, well designed Blogger templates available for download online. We’ve come up with a list that includes some of the most interesting we’ve found up to this date.
First off, let’s talk about how they can be used. After downloading the .zip file and extracting the contents in a folder (making sure you remember the location), you’ll have to log in your Blogger dashboard or Blogger in Draft. After that, you’ll find a layout link. Click on that and then you’ll get to see a edit HTML link which you’ll also have to click. Finally, press browse and locate the template you’ve just downloaded. In the folder you’ll find an XML file and a TXT file. You’ll only have to select the XML one. Once you click Upload, followed by Confirm and Save, you’ll discover that the template is now up and ready for use. From this point on, all you’ll have to do is enjoy. So, as we’ve promised, here are the top 10 templates we’ve found for Blogger:
Before we go right ahead and complicate ourselves with templates that feature various photos all over the place, maybe it’s a good idea to start with something simple. And since in real life nothing can be more delicious than a “chocotreat”, we’re going to recommend the template with the same name for Blogger.
Chocotreat is a free blogger template adapted from WordPress with 2 columns, right sidebar, rounded corners and abstract. It’s brown, squarish and quite artsy. This is why it might be the perfect choice for an art-centric blog or for any user who wants to add his/her own recipes of chocolate-based foods. Download it right here.
This one is a pretty good choice for girly-girls, first of all because it’s pink, but especially because it tends to be simple and clean. So instead of eye poaching flowers scattered all over the screen, you can actually have a nice pink header and see what you’ve written.
Pink Blogging is a free blogger template with 2 columns, right sidebar, rounded corners, floral motifs, geometric motifs and vectorial elements. According to its creator, it’s an excellent layout for blogs regarding anything girly. Be sure to give it a try here, at BTemplates.
By this time it has become pretty clear that there are plenty of Twilight fans out there. I’ve been stuck in a “team Edward” vs “team Jacob” conflict for ages. I might not really be interested in the whole duel, but most of my friends seem to be.
Knowing how many people who simply love the movie about vampires are out there, I decided to add this Blogger theme as well. Twilight is a free blogger template adapted from WordPress with 2 columns and right sidebar. It will work great for blogs about books and movies or, well, for just about any Twilight enthusiastic person. You can find it right here, at BTemplates.
Ever since we were kids, we were insanely drawn by color, grass, skies and funny looking cartoons. In some ways, this particular template reminds me of when I was a kid. In other ways, it’s perfectly fit for adults and a bit too serious for children.
JungleBook is a nature Blogger template with an artistic green header and cool dark brown background. While you can find it for download for free, right here, it’s as close to a premium template as it gets. It features 2 columns, right sidebar, green, custom search box, fully customizable, round corners, nature.
Some people take an interest in books. Others love music. One of the top means of entertainment nowadays are computer games. They can steal hours of your time and you might occasionally find it hard to stop gaming and do something else.
Unless, of course, you blog about games, in which case you’ll surely want to consider a Blogger template called Games Blog. It features a little slideshow on the right, 2 columns, right sidebar, 3 columns in the footer, search box, ads ready, share buttons enabled.
