Great Blogger Resource for Newbies

I cannot tell you how happy I am to discover this great blogging resource for Blogger. I have been wanting to convert to 3 columns for a long time. I wanted to do it with my old blog, but never could find enough time and the right information to get it accomplished.

Oh, but thanks to The Blogger Guide I have finally managed to convert. It was wonderful.

I am pretty new to this blogging thing and know nothing about HTML, except that it holds the code to making this whole blog thing work. I needed a resource that would help me convert without incurring any costs. I'm not making money on this blog, though I have hopes of doing that one day. So, I didn't want to have to pay a web designer.

Enter TheBloggerGuide. I found this page with fairly easy step-by-step instructions on how to change the code. I carefully followed his instructions, clicking back and forth many times to be sure I was following it exactly - I knew one wrong keystroke would mess up the whole thing. When I got to the bottom of the page, I saved my template, moved my widgets around and ta-dah! It worked.

I am so happy. And, so very grateful to TheBloggerGuide for his very clear help in accomplishing this task.

If you're new to Blogger and need a bit of help changing to a 3-column template, this is definitely the place to go.

This website definitely worked for me!

Please note: Works For Me Wednesday is now hosted at WeAreTHATFamily.

Thanks.. I think I've seen this before and have wanted to get my site to a 3 column, but failed the first time. I needed to try again!

Thanks for posting a site that worked for you!

Thanks for the resource, I haven't seen that one before. Will keep it bookmarked for the future, it seems to be easier to follow than the other sites I have found.

Thank you for the site link. I am a new blogger and am technologically challenged. I need all the help I can get.

I will have to check it out. I already have three columns (I didn't do it however) but I sure don't know much of anything about techy stuff! Thank you!

Thank you!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I love the 3 column blogs but have had no idea how to change mine. I can't wait to try it out!

I'm still on a free, basic blogger template -- so this is a very useful tip! Thank You!

Thanks for sharing this! I've wondered how to do that!

Suz said...

I did it... thanks to your showing me that link! I'd tried several sites before with now success, but this one worked like a charm.

The funny thing is that I just sent an email to a lady to design some things for my blog for me. Could've just had her set up the 3 column for me, but guess I saved myself a few bucks doing it myself... plus the feeling of accomplishment :)
