The first step customizing the layout.

Changing the layout


First change your layout. The free templates from Blogger.com are not so professional.SO you need a good layout. I myself am not that good at xml needed to create a layout, so i just search on the Internet for some free layouts for blogger.
There area many sites offering custom made layouts for free.Few have been listed here.

You can look for yourself in google ( go to google and search for " free 3 column blogger").
Open the layout file in Notepad and copy the whole code.
Noe to put that to your blogger template go to your blogger Dashboard.
Then click on Layout..click on Edit HTML..
now before you do any change to your HTML back it up before. Blogger gives u an option of Downloading the Full template click on that.
Now after you have done that go to Edit html and in the Box where you see the HTML code of ur blog .Select all of it and press Delete.
Now paste the new HTML of the layout you wish to change it to.
And click on SAVE.
It its successful its says u to view blog.
If not don't worry some HTML may not work due to improper coding try other ones.
And if any problem arises contact me.
When this is done you have your new blog layout..

I myself like eblogtemplates, and on searching you too could find some good templates there. So now after doing all this you must have a nice looking template.
Now customize it to suit your needs, make a feed-burner account to burn your feeds. Make a logo for yourself, make a favicon and give a personal touch to your blog.
