The Blue Marine Blogger Template is one of my favorite blog templates.  Clean, simple and social media ready, this blog template will get you going in no time.  With clean buttons for Digg, RSS feeds, and Technorati you will be off and running as you set up your blog and start posting!  Don’t worry its free!

The sidebars are one of my favorite parts.  With Drop down menus you will keep your sidebars clean and simple while making everything more accessible.

If you have questions about set-up, I know when I first used it I did, ask away in the comments section and I will respond asap!

Some things you will for sure need to do:

  • Move the b:section below the head section, into the <body> section of the html script.  In Blogger you will do this in the Layouts > Edit Html.  If you do not do this you will get the following message:  [Your template is invalid because the tag 'b:section' appears inside of the tag 'head'.]
  • Before you “upload” the template you will also need to have four widgets in your current template so that the new template can pick them up.  Otherwise you will have errors you cannot fix easily.
  • The date will say “undefined” unless you go to your Dashboard for the blog you want to use > Settings > Formatting > Timestamp Format > make sure it is like this example : “Friday, February 06, 2009″

With those changes you should be hassle free… Enjoy
