Update: 19th November We've just updated the Theme and CSS as Blogger changed a few things. We've also improved hopefully the colours as well as now making the action bar fixed in place as well.
Personally I'm somewhere in the middle.
However I do find some of the cosmetics pretty poor like other users inc white space, excessive padding, color scheme etc.
I decided rather than moaning about it to try and fix some of these myself and I'm pretty happy with the results so far.
Here is what my Dashboard looked like before my changes
Pretty Bland eh!
Now here is my new Dashboard.
Better? Well I think so.
Here is the old Compose Screen
Now here is my version.
Again, I think my version has a lot more character and it's easier to distinguish.
Other features that I've include are
- Better Colouring
- Improved Font Sizes
- Improved Line Spacing
- Fixed Left Hand Menu
- Improved New Blog Post screen
- Plus other minor tweaks
Ok, so by now if you're still reading then you'll probably asking yourself how can I fix my Blogger User Interface to look like this.
Well it's pretty easy. Simply follow these instructions.
1) You need to be using the Google Chrome browser. If you're not using Chrome then you should be. Go get it now here http://www.google.com/chrome
2) Now you need to install a very cool extension called "Sylebot".
You can get the extension here.
3) Once it's installed, goto my New Blogger Interface Style here
4) On this screen simply click the Install Icon
And that's it. Now when you go to Compose Screen or your Post/Articles listing page you should see the new design. You can also tweak the colours and settings yourself if you play around with Stylebot. (See the Further Reading section below)
