I created one of my first relationship-based blogs years ago via the easy-to-use blogger platform. As the blog grew – my knowledge and experience with blogging grew and I moved on to creating blogs via the wordpress platform. Since it was so easy to manage my blogger blogs, I never felt like moving them over to wordpress was worth the fuss. They were monetized and being followed and well-indexed — so I just left them alone. The only thing that really was a pain – was the amateurish templates that blogger offers. I hated them!
A few years ago, as my business begin to really grow and move in a different direction — I wanted all my sites and blogs to best reflect my evolution into a “entrepreneur” and not just a “hobbyist”. And the blogger templates were REALLY beginning to annoy me. So I went on a search for free blogger templates that were a bit more flexible and professional looking. I found a lot of junk. A lot of sites offering the same 20 templates – and I do mean a LOT! I was getting really frustrated.
Lately I saw that a few blogger blogs were looking very professional, but had their templates professionally done. Before I made that type of financial commitment, I wanted to check one more time and alas…I found a site that was really worthwhile over at eblogtemplates.
