Image via WikipediaThe time has come that changes being made on my blog and that the focus gets back to the origin of this blog like i wrote way back in November 2008 in my first blog post.
To summarize it - it will be less about making the quick buck, it's much more about the practical advice
- how to invest your money,
- how to save your money,
- how to secure your finances and
- how to earn online some additional funds part-time or full-time with your blog, online or offline.
NEW TEMPLATE DESIGNER FROM BLOGGER
Changing my template was the first step because the first Blogger template was not optimized for long articles (the articles looked always much longer *lol*).
It was an easy step, it just took me around 1 hour because Google has decided to offer now a Template Designer inside of Blogger! When you look into the choices which Blogger's Template Designer offers, you will see that in the coming days and weeks most of the blogs will look more professional and get a touch of high quality look :)
You can access the new Template Designer from Blogger ONLY in their Blogger in draft section. Simply login in like you do usually and click on Layout. There you will see the new link (last link) for the Template Designer.
And this time the Layout is no more static, everything can be changed with one mouse click!
- It's a good start with 15 available Templates and Google announced that more will be added in the coming weeks

- You can rearrange the width any column sidebars to the exact pixel,
- You can make your template with 1, 2 or 3 columns,
- You can choose how many columns your footer shall have,

- You can change the color themes
- You have the choice of 100s of background pictures

The best feature is you don't have to wait to watch out for the result. A preview of the changes is immediately visible as soon as choose one of the templates + background pictures + by customizing the columns. It will be only used for your blog when you click on the Apply Template-Button.
That means you can mess around with Blogger's Template Designer for hours and rearrange your widgets/gadgets, play with the color themes and so on, nothing will happen to your actual template (it's always better to download a backup of your template, just in case!)
I will be playing some more hours in the coming days with Blogger's Template Designer and for sure rearrange some items until i'm satisfied.
I hope some of you could give me additional advice:
-what doesn't appeal you on the template and what does appeal you-
-Can you read everything or are there some issues with different browsers-
