I created a blog around a couple of years ago, and frankly i was an real amateur back then. With time i learnt a lot of things including that “wordpress is better than blogger” now the thing is that i want to redesign my whole blog, i mean completely, but i don’t know how to do that on blogger but for wordpress, templates can be created.
I have a some good stats that have build with time and so i am not sure if it is right to move to a new domain (.wordpress.com) and i am not in a position to host a website (buy a domain and webspace) right now.
So here is the thing :
is there any way i can apply a whole new design to blogger?
is there a way i can transfer my blog to wordpress with comments and all [and then redirect my blog to new domain]
or anything else that i am unaware of?
Well any help here would be very very very much appreciated.

You can ‘template’ Blogger to your own specs but it’s not simple.
You can download (backup) the template (I think it’s under ‘Edit HTML’) and make adjustments and re-upload.
The issue is that (AFAIK), Blogger uses ‘custom’ code for widgets and base styles. Once you get to grips with that it’s not a difficult process.
Unfortunately, I haven’t found any current step by step tutorials or even comprehensive advice on the process.
Transferring to WP might be the best option.May 28, 2013 at 12:21 pm #136725
@paulie_D transferring would need domain and websapce. :( i maybe able to manage domain but currently can’t go for webspace. I’ll try editing blogger i guess. Let’s see where it goes.
if there is any thing else i can do then tell me.. Else problem Solved :(May 28, 2013 at 12:26 pm #136726Paulie_DMember
There are custom themes for Blogger you can get.
The basic principal is still the same.
Make sure you take a proper backup of this base (existing) template and keep it somewhere safe.
Never overwrite it and always use a copy to play with. that way, if something terrible happens you can just restore the safe backup and start again.
If you find a change that you like, save that iteration in safe place (with a suitable filename – blogger doesn’t care as long as it’s an .xml file) and go from there.May 28, 2013 at 12:46 pm #136730
Thanks a lot. I’ll do the same :) feeling better now.
