Free Blogger Templates and Backgrounds

12 Comments
No matter how hard blogger.com tries to redefine its layouts and styles, I still do not find something that would suit my blog and most of the other blogs I read. Even though many of them just use the default templates and customize them to suit their blog, there's still so much more one can do to make their blog look the part. I think a blog design/theme is as important as its content. It should be attractive enough for a reader to want to stay long enough and browse through the blog and should also suit the content. In short, when a reader drops by your blog, they should immediately be able to tell what its all about. While don't judge a book by its cover does hold true for certain cases, there's nothing wrong with playing around and giving your blog the look it deserves. Here I have a list of websites dedicated to making that happen, I mean, websites that provide free quality templates and backgrounds for your blog.

FreeBloggerBackgrounds: Limited collection but has cute and simple templates with unique color combinations.

BTemplates: Visit here for some really good design and subject oriented templates.

TheCutestBlogOnTheBlock: Just like the name suggests, some of the cutest scrapbooky kind of templates I've ever seen.

Some other resources giving you lists of such free templates worth installing on your blog.

InstantShift: A really good and huge collection of themed templates.

Do you like to go out of the usual and get something unique to suit your blog or do you stick to the default blogger templates? If you are using a unique design, please let me know where you got it and also if you are a designer, leave a link to your website in the comments below, I'd love to check it out.

I wish I could remember where I got my template, but its been so long, and I'm sure it must be there somewhere in the websites linked above. Hope you find what you need for your blog. Happy designing :)
