How can i customize my blog template? I don't want to use anything that's available in the choices given by blogger...

Hi Astuti,

You can customize your blog template via Template tab by clicking Customize button. Or use Edit HTML button to customize HTML codes of your template with your HTML knowledge. Layout tab will let you arrange your page elements too. Make sure to backup your template before make any changes.

Thanks for commenting mate :) I think the sluggishness happens due to usage of flash animation...

What template does this site use? There are not that many blogger templates to choose from.

Hi Michael,

Yeah, Blogger has no hundreds of templates to choose from. But there are customized template providers on the web. I was using Simple template. Now I have customized it for my own needs :)
