I love Blogger. It is so easy to use, and I haven't had a bad experience with it yet. However, there are some features on the Blogger platform that I kind of twitch about when I see. Literally. So many people keep them on their blog because; a) they don't know how to remove them and b) they don't think they are allowed to. Yes, you are allowed to remove Blogger features, and in this post I thought I would share with you some of my tips on how to make your Blogger blog look less bloggery and more you.
Remove the photo border. When you create your blog, your pictures will have a annoying border and a slight shadow around them. Some people may like that, but personally it is one of the first things I remove.
Nav Bar. Again, when you create your blog, at the top will be a Google nav bar. Although this may seem helpful, if you look at the stats, it is pointless. This is easily removed by selecting 'off' on the gadget.
Favicon. If you want to make your blog more you, the orange 'B' favicon can be really annoying. Luckily, this can be easily removed.
Attribution. The 'powered by blogger' at the bottom of your blog can be irritating, especially if you want to add your own, but once again it can be removed with some simple code on the internet.
If there is any other item you want to add/remove, in the past I just Googled it. There are plenty of tutorials on the internet, and when you achieve it, it is greatly satisfying!
Do you like the Blogger platform, is there anything else you would remove?
