When I started blogging I was first looking for a nice template after I subscribed to this service. At blogger there are many nice templates available, so it was a difficult decision which one finally to choose.
I decided to try out them, see them behind, or next to, one another, to get an image of the possibilities and a general view on a template. How would they look at my screen? And what possibilities there are with colours, fonts and lay-out?
I do not know, I made the right decision, but later it is always possible to change the template into another I found out.
I called this tests with fonts, colours and lay-outs shapes of templates.
