Blogger gets a face lift



Blogger has just brought out a whole load of new templates, bringing it more in line with Wordpress. You can choose from a host of background images, and have transparency and rounded corners, in fact there's almost anything you might need. Almost everything. There's still a bit of tweaking to do if you want a favicon or your own background image. But it's a big improvement.

I've spent all morning playing with it.

Blimey, this all looks very smart! I don't know whether to update or to stay charmingly retro?

Old Kitty said...

Oooh I'm tempted.. I always wanted three columns, two either side of the main one. Hmmm!

:-)

Yours is lovely and brilliant blue!

take care

Maybe this is my inspiration to return to my blog? haha

poxyos. What an odd word verification.

Scarlet, retro suits you! But it's fun playing with the new templates. (I did use an old blog that I'd abandoned as my playground. I got some very weird effects while I was playing around!)

Kitty, why not give it a go? I love being able to have two sidebars, and there are a lot of layouts to choose from.

Bevie, go for it!

This is all looking very jolly.

My blog is 2 years old next week so I may just be up for a revamp.

Whirl, I'm glad you think this blog is jolly! I hope you're going to throw a blogiversary party for yours.

Steena Holmes said...

I know what I'm doing this weekend ;)

Adam Heine said...

I'm so glad you posted about this, else I wouldn't have known! Of course now I'm going to get NOTHING done today :-)

Ann said...

Oh fun, must check it out. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Gotta go, time to play!

fairyhedgehog said...

Steena, I'll be interested to see what you come up with! I'll have to check both your blogs because at the moment I'm only following Chocolate Reality.

Adam, sorry, sorry, sorry! It will be fun,though.

Ann, I hope you have fun with it too!

I'm a little late here, I know. I'm glad they've put in new features and on the whole I think they're cool. I'm a little disappointed, though, that there are no donuts, chocolate, cupcakes, etc., in the background section.

fairyhedgehog said...

M(R)p, I hadn't spotted that lack! Maybe you could ask them for some; it's still in beta! At least there are lots of bookish ones, which is something, but it doesn't make up for a lack of chocolate.

Ooh, pretty! And of course I've completely stolen your idea and redone my blog too. Thank you for providing that link!

fairyhedgehog said...

jj, and very nice it looks too! I like the clouds effect. It's handy having so much control over the number and placing of columns, too.
