Dividends4Life: Hello Sunshine!

Hello Sunshine!

Posted by D4L | Saturday, March 29, 2008 | | 5 comments »

Last night I updated Dividends4Life's template. Though I liked the previous template, it had several short-comings that would be difficult to overcome. I am excited about the new template. It addresses most, if not all, of the old template's short-comings including:

  • A white background that is easy on the eyes and allows for a smaller font.
  • An earth tone color scheme that is easy on the eyes
  • Resizable side bar columns, that minimizes wasted space
  • A section that combines the two smaller sidebars into a single larger side bar

I have been working on this template for many weeks on a test blog. Unlike the last upgrade (going from 2 columns to 3), this installation went smoothly. I will continue to make adjustments over the next week or so. If you see something that doesn't look right or isn't working please leave me a comment or email me at bbkjbbkj@gmail.com.

For those subscribing the Dividends4Life via email or a reader, click on the title of this message title and check out the setup. As always, I appreciate your interest in Dividends4Life!

    Much improved layout. Very clean - love the whitspace. Before I left this comment, I could've sworn you had moved off blogger and onto Wordpress!

    I first thought that I mistakenly went on to a different site. I didn't know you could use different templates than the ones designed for you in blogger.
    Super nice!

    Curious as to what you used to make the template? I am looking to upgrade mine and have not found any online that I like all that much.

    All: Thanks for the kind words! As I said in the post I am really excited about this template.

    Llama Money: It is actually a WordPress theme that has been converted to Blogger.

    Dividend Growth and Freedom 45: You can install 3rd party templates, but it is rather painful. When I went from 2 cols to 3 several months ago, I messed the blog up so bad I nearly quit blogging. This time I set up a test blog and did my experimenting/practice runs there. I messed it up several times and ended up having to delete it.

    If you are interested where I got the template there is a link in the credits on the very last line. It is labeled "Free Blogger Templates". There are a lot of good ones there. Most are converted Wordpress themes.

    Best Wishes,
