Blogger Bloggers Can Customize Dynamic Views
About a month ago, Google launched Dyanmic Views for Blogger. This is an interesting concept that allows viewers of Blogger blogs to change the way the blog looks as they read it, giving the user more control over the look of content than the content provider itself.
Readers can look at Blogger blogs in several different templates like Classic, Flipcard, Magazine, Mosaic, Sidebar, Snapshot, and Timeslide. The following video shows what these look like:
Now, Google updating the feature some more. Now, bloggers have the ability to customize the Dynamic Views. You can use the Template Designer to modify the background, fonts or colors, and add a custom header. There are also suggested themes provided.
“To begin personalizing your blog, log in to the Blogger dashboard, select ‘Template’, choose from one of the seven Dynamic Views, and then click ‘Customize’ to access the Template Designer,” instructs product manager Bruce Polderman.
Earlier this week, Google revealed that Blogger bloggers will be able to start using their Google+ profiles, bringing the first (of more to come) integration of the two services. It will be interesting to see what direction this goes in, particularly as Google also integrates Google+ into more of its products in more ways.
