Customizing website on Blogger from Google+

Hello everyone,

I need some advice on upgrading my site on Blogger on Google +.

Background Story: I use Blogger from Google + quite extensively because of the seamless upload of pictures I take that are automatically added to my Google + account. Unfortunately, Blogger isn't exactly the best, and because of the aforementioned reason, I can't switch to WordPress which I know is easier to use. Hence I decided to join the TeamTreeHouse team to build my own website.

Actually though, I would like to integrate the website I create with Blogger so that I get: a) my pictures still uploaded through Google + into Blogger; and b) my website exactly the way I want it without having to depend on Blogger's templates.

I searched the forum, but have not seen a thread re Blogger on Google+ so thought I'd start one.

Any nuggets of info would be most appreciated.

Thanks all.

Welcome to Treehouse, Geoff Evans! We're super glad you're here.

We don't cover Blogger specifically, but if you work through our courses about HTML and CSS you'll be well on your way. In terms of getting up to speed on custom templating with Blogger, I'd check out their documentation about customizing your template. That page links to a lot of documentation about their custom templating tags and customizing your blog's CSS.

Thanks Alan, I'll check out your suggestion.
