Blogger Themes and Templates:
If you're a blogger user too, these themes are really simple to apply. They've got a nice number of themes but they're plain and simple. All you need to do the least is copy & paste to get it working.

Hehe, I came across a bunch of girly template sites. They're really cool and nicely finished. Too bad there wasn't any classy template in black or dark red:
Weblog Design | Pink Design.
BlogSkins has lots of good designs but the site layout is a bit cluttered; makes it hard looking for what you need :S ...
Here's a bunch of crappy "free" template sites. They include dynamic templates, dreamweaver and flash templates too:
Template Monster | Template Store | Weblogger Themes. hehe, if I were you, I wouldn't bother going through such sites... :\ Oh and here's a nice list called "the ultimate blog template list". Hope the links there are worth it.
Its a bit similar to 'adding a comment'. Many forums and bulletin boards have this feature. Its sort of a small chat room... Anyone can post in your shoutbox. They're also referred as "Tag-Boards". Its fun to have one :) ... There are many sites that offer this service.
shoutbox.us | myshoutbox.com | CBox | ChatterBox | Tag-Board
(Left to Right: Rated better in my opinion.)
Hacks, Tips & Tricks
When I was screwing around with HTML tags I placed a <'body'> tag in the itempage <'div'>. When I saw the preview the blogger bar appeared with the rest of the main text. It gave me an idea... >:D *chingggg*. Blogger sees your template and places its bar just before the last <'body'> tag :P ... And thats what i did. :D ... After sometime browsing I noticed there are a bunch of Blogger Hacks out there! You can make your blog display photos of those who posted comments... :D ... This is the forum post that led me to Blogger Hacks. Blogger itself has a hacks page in its help section. Do check out peek-a-boo comments. Two other sites have tons of more hacks, tips and tricks:
BloggerHacks | FreshBlog.
Here's another post on how to Remove the Bar permanently!
Counters & Referrers
There are many websites out there that offer free counters. Counters are good to keep track of how many people come to visit your blog. Most counters have their ugly names and/or annoying ads in it. Mostly people don't like having it in their counter... The one I'm using is by StatCounter. You can choose the type of counter you want and pretty much customize most of it. It gives you detailed information about the hits your counter got along with detailed statistics and stuff (from graph illustrations to IP Addresses of your visitors). Other than counters, you can show a list of pages that brought visitors to your blog.. This small service is provided by Referer.org and TrueFresco.org. Recently Google started something similar called Google Analytics. Its a must see :)
Well thats about it I guess. Loads of goodies :P ... All you need is a bunch of spare time and voila!! :D
