Favourite Free Blog Templates

Wednesday, 11 November 2015
I haven't really posted many blogging help/advice posts but I've decided that I would like to start them. I've been blogging for a while now and changed my blog umpteen times so I have some knowledge that might be useful.


For my first Blogging 101 post I thought I would share a few of my favourite free templates. I know when you are starting your blog the blogger generic templates just don't cut it after a while, but trawling through the million free templates out there is not the most fun task ever!


Free Blogger Template
First is the Color Pop Coral template, you can see it live here, this was created by the lovely Jennifer, the brains behind This Creative Mom. It's a really pretty, minimalistic template, with a pop of colour, perfect for blogs of any kind. It's simple to navigate and great for a first template. It is mobile responsive which is almost a necessity for today's world as everyone seems to use their phones. You can find and download it here.


Free Blogger Templates
Now the Aurora template by Maria at Marigall. This particular template is one I am very tempted to use myself, it is not only clean and spacious but also responsive; everything a blog needs! You have full control over the fonts and colours, you are also able to create drop down menus to separate your content. No need for adding related posts below either as this comes with the template itself as well as a 'back to top button' which is great if you're one who writes a lot. This template offers you a hell of a lot for nothing and even if you don't want to change your template yet, I would download it for later use. You can see it live here and find out even more here.


Free Blogger Template
This is a really good template if you want to showcase your images straight away. It is the Cocktail template, live demo here, it has a slide show of posts as well as a lot of clean open, white space. Again you are able to create drop down menus, but overall this template is definitely one for those who love their photography. To find out more click here!


I thought I would share only three to start with as I don't want to make this a really long post. If you liked the post let me know and I'll happily showcase some more of my favourite free blog templates. That being said if you just can't find a blog template you like that's free, Etsy have a lot of inexpensive ones which I could also post on, so just let me know and enjoy your day!
