A HUGE step for the Blogger platform

Wow, it's about time that Blogger came out and finally did something with their template selections! I feel like it's been years since fellow bloggers have had to resort to scrutinizing over the same sixteen templates that nobody has ever seemed to like. Either that or they've hunted the internet on the mercy of coders and web designers to release templates, sometimes just for the simple alteration of one of the original versions that Blogger offered. I've been on blogspot for five years now, and it's been the only platform I've stuck to ever since getting on. The new template creator really unlocks thousands of color combinations, layouts, background images and themes. 

See, Blogger? All we needed was a little bit of love.

If you haven't seen the new Blogger Template Creator, then these pictures will make you literally jump out of your seat! I've noticed that Blogger is a bit slow in announcing their newest features, so if you're finding this out only now for the first time, I suggest subscribing to their blog or switching to Blogger Draft as your normal dashboard. This way, you'll see what's coming down the pipeline and what you'll soon be able to look forward to! 

Some pictures of the new template creator: 

Now pick your own background design images! 


The new platform merges layout and colors in the same editor. Sweet. 


Each theme has a subset of themes that range in color. More possibilities!


Best feature of all - the easy to use layout selection. No more weird code formatting!

Tell me how would this affect the useability of the template designer: "The Template Designer is not supported on Internet Explorer 6" Peter Blogger Tips and Tricks

You're still using IE6?

I'm use Chrome and Firefox, both work fine for me. BTW, here is your site as a topic for others to review. Feel free to be the first to rate Blogger Tips and Tricks (http://lunch.com/t/15bd)

The problem is not me. Bloggers make their blogs for others not for themselves. If you check your stats I am very sure a significant portion will be using IE 6 and below. What I want to know is, how will they see your blog

You've got a point there, actually, now that I think of it. You should write a quick review on it to help others get a balanced view of the platform. What's the best way to create a customized template in your opinion?
