Where to download and how to install custom blogspot themes

If you already made your blog at blogspot.com you will notice that there are some default theme available by Google, but what if you want to install a different one that is not available on the list? Today I am going to show you where you can get some of the custom design themes for free and how to install them on your blog. First head on over to btemplates, or gooyaabitemplates here you can find a lot of free templates for your blog and the best part is they are free to use.

Although there are a lot of themes available, I recommend downloading the one that is the most simple with good coloring. For example, a theme with a white or light blue background is going to look much better on most blog because most people are used to a website that has a simple background, but then again that might just be my own opinion so you can experiment all you want and let me know how your blog turns out. After all, I had to experiment with a lot of templates before I found one that I like to use.

Once you have your template downloaded, it will be in a zip form. Go ahead and double click on the zip file and extract the .xml file to your Desktop. Now follow the step below to install your custom template.

1. Go to blogspot.com and log in to your blog using your Gmail

2. Navigate down to Theme and click on it. Now you should be in the theme section. Navigate your mouse over to the top right-hand corner and click on the button Backup / Restore

3. Click on the Choose File button.


4. Locate the .xml file you put on your Desktop, click on it and click Open


5. Now click on the Upload button and wait for it to upload your custom template.



6. Once it is done uploading, click View blog to see your blog with a different template installed like I have below.


Note that btemplate and gooyaabitemplates are only two sample websites that I have shown you where you can download custom templates for your blog. There are many others that you can go to, to download more. Just simply do a Google search for blogspot templates and you can find much more that might fit what you are looking for.
