Blogger provides some pretty blog templates. Unfortunately the provided templates are limited and may not be suitable for our need.  In my opinion, the provided templates in blogger are boring and old fashioned.

You could search the blogger templates in the net using Google and you’ll find out that many websites provide beautiful templates with various feature and layout.In this guidance, I will use allblogtools to get my blogs template.  When you click the link of allblogtools in this page, you’ll be brought to allblogtools page as picture shown below :

I want to get a magazine like blog template.  Then I click the Search Text Box, type in “magazine” and click the Search button.

Then I see all of the magazine like templates :

I scroll down the page and I find a nice blog templates named “Melitus” :

I decide to know more about the template and I click “Read More” button.  I’ll see the next page :

Scroll to see the details of the template like this picture shown below :

Click the “Click here For Demo test” to see the appearance of the templates before downloading the template.  I see the demo page as :

Please be understood that sometimes you need to change the script of the templates.  In order to do that, I suggest you to learn a little bit about HTML code.  It will help a lot to understand what you should change to fix the script of the template.

Now, it’s time to take your action.  Get your blog and start blogging !  :)
