Chapter 4. Personalizing your Blog

Blogger saves your blog entries internally in a database, not as static files. When you hit the Publish Post button, Blogger generates the blog’s Web page by outputting the information from the database according to the formatting instructions given in your blog’s template, which you originally chose on page 5.

While you can change the template itself (and we’ll do just that in Chapter 5), Blogger makes it really easy to edit and adjust, add, remove, and reorder the page elements in your blog, as well as change the fonts and colors used to style it. These are quick and easy ways to give your blog a unique look.
