Free Blogger Templates: Where to Get Beautiful Templates

Some blogger templates are already provided by Blogger.com. There is nothing wrong with them, but if you need a better look and on the other hand you are just too busy creating content or simply not knowing how to modify them, there are many free template designs you can choose and download.

Here I give you links where you can get many high-quality blogger templates. Some with comparatively AdSense optimal positioning, others come up with unique and catchy design, and some focused on simplicity but still have professional look and feel. In short, you will find that blogger templates can be modified to many absolutely beautiful and creative forms that some of you probably have never imagined before.

Here you are the links in no particular order:

1. Geckoandfly - some templates this site provides have fresh wordpress look.

2. FinalSense - this site has a collection of beautiful templates grouped into several categories such as 3-columns, computer, animal, music and dance, and others.

3. Free Templates - Isnaini has some 3 column blogspot templates that have relatively good placement of AdSense. You can also find here an instruction of how to use classic templates if you want to use one of them.

4. Blogger Templates - a collection of some nice templates from some designers.

5. Blogger Templates - you can find attractive and unique templates here that have popular-movie themes such as Shrek and Pirates of the Carribean.

6. BlogSkins - a vast array of templates (for blogspot, wordpress, movable type, xanga) contributed, commented, and rated by users.

7. Blogger Templates by Caz - Caz has made some creative blogger templates you can use and modify for free. Still, these templates are linkware; so you must keep Caz's link intact.

8. BlogCrowds - BlogCrowds claims to have the largest existing collection of new blogger templates. They are categorized into niche, web2.0, monochromatic, artistic, minimalistic, color-based theme (light, blue, dark, etc), 3 and 2 columns.

9. Create Blog - This is a place where many users give their best try to design good templates, and provide their helpful works to the public for free. Unlike most of others, you can display the templates based on the newest, oldest, most favorites, most views, most comments, or random.

10. Kaushal Sheth - Kaushal ported some arcsin templates to blogger. If you want a xml version for new blogger instead of a classic one, then go to here

11. Zeventina's Design - As far as I can see, most of her works are best for girls. If I were a girl, I would have used the Morning Bird Song template.

12. Template Panic - Give a look to this Mad for Mac template.

13. Pannasmontata Templates - And here is another recommended link for you who are seeking for unique design.

I have tried as best as I can to give links what I think are very good resources for free blogger templates; however, if you have different opinion or you just know a good link that I miss here, why don't you post it in the comment section to let us know?

Run Each of Your Files Instantly with PStart

PStart is a perfect accompanion to Folder Guide and QTTabBar.

When you use it to access one of your files or folders with QTTabBar installed on your system, it opens the file/folder in a new tab. If you already use Folder Guide, I'm pretty sure you already know that Folder Guide can only work with folder and bring the destination folder to front in the same tab. Moreover, PStart goes beyond Folder Guide with its capability to make groups and sub-groups.

PStart doesn't integrate with context-menu like Folder Guide, but it can be accessed simply by pressing a hotkey that you can freely set by yourself, or by clicking the icon that resides in the tray. And the best thing of all is that you can apply each folder and file (including executable file or program) their own hotkeys.

There are many things you can do to make your PC loads quicker and run faster. One of them is to give more free space to your hard disk.

The methods which are about to be covered are purposely for Windows user, but some can be applied to other operating system as well. All the free softwares I include here are Windows compatible.

1. Find and eliminate duplicate files - if you work with a lot of data everyday, there is a big chance you have duplicate files in your PC. Try to use Easy Duplicate Finder to solve this situation.

3. Use online storage - you can use Gmail Drive for easy data transfer into your Gmail account from Windows explorer, or search other online storage services. There are lots of them available for free.

4. Use file cleaner application to get rid of any temporary files. CCleaner is a popular choice for this task.

5. Manage your installed softwares - uninstall any rarely used and install only applications with features that satisfy your daily need. You don't have to use a sophisticated word processor if your everyday need is only create simple document with a few format and layout styles. Look closer at the size of disk space consumed by each application as well.

6. Do you backup often? Then make your backup files compressed. If you want to do it automatically, use FileHamster. This freeware is able to create backup in compressed format. Compress other files that have rarely been opened as well. If possible, try to figure out which compression type (ZIP, RAR, 7-Zip, or others) is best for each targetted file format.

7. Save to external storage media (CD, DVD, external hard disk, and the like).

8. Delete files which no longer needed.

9. Compress or delete all manual pages or help documentations that you think there is no use anymore to keep. Also remove other unnecessary files in every applications such as Readme files or internet shortcuts to the developer's sites.

10. Convert any multimedia and graphic files to more compressed formats. For example, from DV AVI into DivX or XviD.

11. Remove your standard wallpapers (if you already get really bored of them). Navigate to Windows, open Web folder, then Wallpaper. There you can find wallpapers listed in Display properties.

12. Reduce the amount of disk space used by System Restore for each drive.

13. Reduce the storage capacity of recycle bin or remove files immediately without moving into it.

14. Use NTFS instead of FAT file system.

15. Remove any unnecessary plug-ins within your installed softwares.

16. Remove themes or skins of desktop, winamp, or any installed softwares that you hardly use.

17. You can turn off the hibernation feature to release 128 MB of disk space if you want to.
