Playing with Templates

It's been awhile since I've had any notion of doing anything with this blog. This has been down to a) me being lazy and b) not happy with the layout of the blog, which feeds nicely back to a)!

However, today I was having a look at the standard templates, to spur me once more to change the site and hopefully get the creative juices following again, but none of them took my fancy! So I thought about looking for third party templates, or at the very least modifying one, or possibly designing my own. Then I discovered this page on the Blogger Help site and thought 'perfect I'll have a shot of that.' Then couldn't find the option in my blog settings, or any reference on how you get to the options to change to the Blogger Template Designer. I then tried the Dashboard and missed the setting completely on at least three different occasions! It is there, it's just not that obvious, at least to me. What you need to do is select Blogger in Draft then click on Layout and there is the Template Designer. 2 minutes later I had this new template up and running.

Now if only I could get the hobby stuff on the same track...
