I was getting a bit bored with the standard Blogger template we were using so I've taken the liberty of opting for a bit of a re-design. There are a dizzying variety of styles to choose from. I did a simple web search and discovered hundreds of free downloadable templates. Once the zip file has been downloaded and expanded to reveal the xml file, it's simply a matter of uploading it to your blog on the Layout page. You lose your widgets in the process, but it hasn't taken me too long to move things around a bit and re-establish what was there before (almost). I chose a template that suggested ideas scribbled on the back of an envelope (thanks for the prompt Mr Hawes). I also like the suggestion of something handmade. The heading area does take up rather a lot of screen space and you may find yourself scrolling more than you used to in order to access the posts and links, but I hope you like the new look.
