    How to make a professional looking blog?

    Before I used this blog theme, I used the Aqua Contempo, a free theme on Blogger. I did some modifications to make my website looked professional, even though I am not tech-savvy.

    I removed the background image because it's not compatible with my content. I edited the font style and font size of the page using the Theme Designer on Blogger and played along with the layout to the way I want them to be.

    I am not tech-savvy and do not know HTML. So everything I did to my website was open source and real-time learning.


    As a beginner, I'd tried various free blog templates from another source but, I had a hard time arranging the layout of my website.

    Another thing was the layout of those free blog templates was not the same in desktop and mobile view. That was because I didn't know yet about responsive web design.

    The most frustrating part of my experience using the free blog templates from another free source was the attribution footer. There's no option to remove the attribution footer to make my website look professional because bloggers should give credit to the template author for using the blog templates they created.

    After those experiments, I switched back to the free Blogger Theme and had easily removed the Powered by Blogger that made my website more professional looking.
