We all know as bloggers that we have different blogging platforms available that we can use and depending on what we are blogging about, we decide what’s best for us.
My blog has been on blogger since the start and although I have been tempted to jump to WordPress I haven’t done so because of the following:
Losing my pageviews and followers
Wordpress is way too complicated for my liking
So I have decided to just use blogger until I decide otherwise, but I doubt that will happen anytime soon. What I have been doing is trying to find ways to make my blog look better, so I found myself coming across a few interesting facts:
We all know blogger is user friendly, so this is a good advantage for new bloggers
Blogger is owned and run by Google, so this means they take care of a lot of stuff for your blog, especially the plugins
Blogger will rarely have any problems, so your blog will always be up and running
Unlike WordPress, on blogger you sign up for ads. WordPress will randomly show ads on your blog (When you have a ‘example.wordpress.com’ blog)
Blogger takes care of your blog index, since it’s owned by Google, your blog will appear on search engines far more quickly.
So I decided to share with you guys links to different sites where you can download these cool themes. I have a few favourite ones but be warned, these themes may be easy to install but editing them can be a little bit complicated. If you know HTML or know of someone who does then you won’t go through any difficulties:
Remember to save your current theme before installing a new one – just in case you don’t like it or it gets too complicated, you can always re-install it again. Since we are all here to help each other and you would like to offer your HTML services or help to us please feel free to do so by submitting a tutorial (contact us via our ‘contact us page’).
Hope you find something you like and you give your blog a fresh new look. Once I have changed mine I will definitely share it with you guys.
