The procedure is easy, just go for example to the site you find here -> btemplates, choose the template you like best, download it and unzip it. You will find an XML file, but it’s nothing to worry about.
Log in on your blog and log in, go to layout and then edit HTML. Before installing the new model download the old one so if you think about it you can restore it. Then click on browse and locate the XML file of the new model, then click on upload.
ATTENTION all your widgets will be deleted and you will have to restore them manually!

5 EXCELLENT FREE BLOGGER TEMPLATES
We also see a selection of those that we think are some excellent free blogger templates. They were selected based on options, speed, SEO properties and of course aesthetics.
NewsOn – It’s a great theme, especially if you want to create a news site, its structure is, in fact, typical of news sites. It offers the possibility to put the latest news in evidence and in a completely automatic way. Also good is the integration of social media, with a special Widget to highlight Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter, etc.
Sister Beauty Blogger Template – If you need a template for photographers or to show off your design work Sorella Beauty is the one for you. Excellent for highlighting images and offering a fantastic widget system to highlight, for example, the About section, your Facebook page, newsletter subscriptions via feed and much more. Excellent elegant design.
Publister – It is a great alternative to the aforementioned NewsOn, so this too for a news site. Excellent widgets and easy integration of advertising such as Adsense into the header and sidebar.
Lily Fashion – It is appreciated for its particular elegance, so it adapts well not only to Fashion, but to show, for example, products of any type, from cosmetics, to fashion, clothes, accessories and much more. To be taken into consideration also for personal sites. Obviously full responsive and with many excellent widgets.
Sora CV – It is perfect if you need to create a site that talks about you, your work experiences and your skills. Very modern with transition effects and with the possibility of creating a very personalized home page. It allows you to add three boxes with prices, the google map and the contact form directly in the home.
In our opinion, Blogger remains a very limited platform. Suitable for a news site, but really complex if you want to do something different. The templates for bloggers in recent times have definitely improved before they were always a step backward compared to WordPress templates for example, now you can find something interesting and with quite a push.
