Hey MakeUseOf! I thought I would share with you what I have learned about Blogger’s Blogspot blogging platform over the last 8 months or so. I jumped into the new Blogger almost immediately after its beta launch and then I wanted to customize it - You know, make it my own.

So I went out looking for how to do it. And here is that wisdom I uncovered. Consider it a gift from me to you. Poor old Blogger gets a bad wrap, namely because people do not know how to manipulate it. I hope this article helps you guys out and if you have any others please let me know in the comments… are indebted to AtA - via TechWag Interview.

Techwag sat down with the AndroidGuys and found out that they are indebt to Ask the Admin, one of those truly useful sites out there, and ended up with a very interesting interview. If you are into android development and want news, good relevant news, then this is the site to visit.

Techwag: Are you affiliated with AtA? (Ask the Admin)

AndroidGuys: Although we are not affiliated in any official capacity with AtA, we definitely owe a great deal of thanks to Karl and his crew over there. He was one of the first ‘bloggers’ to reach out and offer advice and direction for us when we were getting started. By letting us guest blog on AtA a couple of times, we were able to gain some traffic boosts back to our site. Any time we have any questions or are looking for feedback, Karl is one of the first names we think of.

There are a bunch of print articles I am in the process of scanning and uploading!
