Have you noticed the new blogger themes yet? Yes, I’m not kidding. Google seems to be serious about it’s blogging platform Blogger, and introducing updates and new features. There were some minor updates related to the Blogger dashboard back in November 2016. However, many bloggers didn’t like it. I was quite comfortable with those changes. But the recent introduction of new responsive themes is really a good gift by Google and would be welcomed by the majority of bloggers who are using this platform.
Well, I’m not going to write a detailed article on this right now, but let’s have a quick overview of the top features of these new blogger templates as per the initial observation. Will update this article later with more details, if required.
Which are the new Themes introduced by Google for Blogger
Google has launched the following new featured and responsive theme for its blogger platform. Each of these themes comes with 5 different colors and styles. I’m also sharing the demo links along with the Theme names:
Features of new blogger themes
The new Blogger themes are packed with the following awesome and extremely welcomed features. I bet you would fall in Love with these if you are still using any of the default templates till now. There you go:
1. Full Responsive
All these four templates are fully responsive. That means no matter which device a user is visiting your blog from, they will not have any trouble viewing your contents. The templates will scale according to the device’s viewport to provide a seamless experience to the user using any kind of device.
2. Meant for Speed
All these new Blogger themes are meant for better speed. You will find a decrease in the blog’s loading time if you have started using these new themes. Since page loading speed directly impacts your user’s experience and also your site’s SEO.
3. Material Design
All these templates incorporate Google’s Material Design. And of course, Material Design enhances user interface and experiene a lot. Using material design in blogger themes is really a good step by Google.
4. Enhanced Social Sharing Feature
You get a completely redesigned social sharing widget with these new Blogger themes. This way user will get an enhanced experience while sharing your article on social media.
5. Popular Post Widget
The popular posts widget at the end of single article will display the popular articles on your blog. So as soon as a reader reches the end of any article, he/she will find a list of popular articles and can read them.
There are many other minor and may be major changes which I still have to look through. I’ll update them here with some screen shots as well, if required.
