If you want to change the theme of your Blogger blog, now it's easier than ever!
Blogger in Draft is a service from Blogger that allows users to test upcoming features of this free blogging platform. You can log in to Blogger in Draft using your Google or Blogger account and benefit from all the new cool stuff that's being prepared.
Even though the tested features are only available there, the changes you make to the blog's design apply permanently to your Blogspot blog. So before you make any changes, save your current layout if you'd like to switch back to your old template later.
With the new template designer you can:
- create new columns for your blog (two columns or three columns blog)
- create new columns in the blog's footer (split footer column, add extra fields)
- adjust the width of any column by sliding a marker (see the changes take effect in real time)
- add a background image to your blog (choose from lots of quality pictures and patterns hosted on iStockphoto.com - nature, sports, travel, science and other categories)
|Here’s what we’re launching today to Blogger in Draft:|
Go to http://draft.blogger.com/ to log in to Blogger in Draft. (If you’ve never been there before, Blogger in Draft is just like regular Blogger, except with new, in-development features like this one.) Click on your blog’s “Layout” link to go to the Layout tab. The link to the Template Designer is at the end of the row of sub-tabs.

With these new design options, Blogger gives you more control over the look of your blog - just like WordPress premium themes. I still wonder whether a blogging platform, given the same content, can make a difference in a blog's traffic... What do you think?
