    If you are a novice blogger, feeling extremely overwhelmed by the number of templates available on the web, here is a small list of questions to help you choose the appropriate template for your blog. While this is definitely not an exhaustive list and you may have something different in mind, should you feel need a place to start, this can help you define basic requirements.


    1. Do you want a theme-based Layout?
    With more and more layouts based on themes relating to cartoons and films, it is absolutely up to you to choose wheather or not you want them. If not, you can easily eliminate a lot of templates.


    2. Do you want a two or three-column layout?
    Plenty of templates of both type are available, but knowing how importantly, the placement of the columns (right or left-aligned) will help you sift through templates easily.


    3. What is your ideal font type and size?
    You have to consider an optimum font size and type which is not impossible to read. Keeping the optimum size in mind will help you eliminate more templates.


    4. What color scheme would you like for your blog?
    Searching by color on blog template websites can save you a lot of hassle. However, remember to eliminate templates with a light-colored font on a light background.

    Hi,

    Thats Good Ideas. If you are making your own from strach. Or you can just do it the way I did spend 1 mo. going to every theme place and forums site looking at every one. Saving the demo you like and try them all out. :)

    This is not recomended if you do not have at least 1 mo to spare lost of themes out there.

    Doing some research before anything is always good. It gives you ideas and experience too.

    I prefer themes with white background with black letters for easy reading. Don't select themes with bright colors if you are going to write a lot. It should be good for eyes.
