While as the blogger you will be working in the back end of the blog, where the important things are getting your blog to function the way that you need it to so that you can customize it and update it any way that you want, every one else who uses your blog, from readers to advertisers, will be concerned with the front end of your blog, that is, the way that it appears to someone who navigates to your blog’s web address in their web browser. A large part of the front end of your blog is determined by your blog template, and if you have spent any time researching which blog template you would like to use, you have probably realized that there are a near limitless amount of templates for you to choose from. Many individuals and companies create blog template after blog template for people to use for free, as a sort of hobby; many people who are interested in graphic design do this sort of thing for fun and as a service to bloggers. Others create a blog template for people to downloaded for a fee, and make a living out of designing a new and innovative or sleek and attractive blog template that makes for a stunning blog. Spend a little time searching the internet for a blog template and you will find that the problem is not finding a blog template that you can use for free or within your price range, but choosing a blog template from the many hundreds of thousands that are available for bloggers to choose from.

When choosing a blog template, it is important to keep in mind several things. One important thing that you must consider when choosing a blog template is whether or not you want to sell advertising space on your blog. Some templates are set up specifically for advertising, with advertising blocks in certain locations that are proven to attract readers and entice them to click on them; other blog templates are designed for people who are concerned more with the aesthetic appeal of their blog without regard for any monetary gain that may result from it. A blog template may be customizable, designed with the fact that many people will probably end up using the same template in mind, and allowing for the individual users to customize it to set their blog apart from the thousands upon thousands of other blogs that ultimately implement that particular blog template, while other blogs allow near zero customizability, so that every blog that implements that particular blog template will look identical except for the actual content of the site. There are many other differences between blog template, and the best way to find out which template is best for your blog is to try out several of them both as a blogger and as a reader and see what appeals most to your aesthetic sensability as well as your needs as an administrator.
