Blogger Layout Week 37: Teal




We're continuing our series of looking into blogger's templates and this is the 37th instalment.  We're still in the Notable family of templates, which do look quite nice, depending on your blog's focus.  The layout doesn't really change, but once again the colours sure have.

How to Add an Image In Blogger



One way to make your post more appealing is to include some images.  Professional bloggers often swear by adding images as a way to get more visitors to read your post, and keep reading after they click.  As everyone knows, a picture is worth a thousand words.
