Chapter 4. Personalizing Your Blog

Chapter 4. Personalizing Your Blog

Blogger saves your blog entries internally in a database, not in static files. When you hit the Publish Post button, Blogger generates the blog's Web page by outputting the information from the data base according to the formatting instructions given in your blog's template, which you originally chose on page 5. The template is made up of a style sheet that contains the formatting instructions, template or placeholder tags that determine which parts of your blog should go in which place on the Web page, and static text and icons that help identify the different parts of your blog.

To personalize your blog, you can choose a new template or edit an existing one and then republish your blog to generate the existing blog entries with the new formatting instructions.

Blogger also offers a number of time, date, and archiving options that we'll go over at the end of this chapter.
