This template of course supports Blogger Dashboard editing tools, with a surprising amount of font and color options that can be changed via the "Template Designer," within the "Advanced," subcategory. Enjoy!

- Images included, you do not need to upload the images to your own server, they are stored in my photobucket.com account which allows generous direct linking bandwidth. However, users who have access to an image host are advised to download the images and upload them to their own server, as the bandwidth could potentially be exceeded in the future. Download the images from here. (Images are now also included in the zip download for convenience.)

Customizing Home and Feed LinksThese links require no editing and will automatically reflect the data specific to your blog. Should you like to remove these or change them anyways, you will find them between these snippets of code
<!-- start top links edit links or remove if you wish -->
<!-- end top links -->
Customizing Main LinkbarAdd your links to the main linkbar simply by clicking the "Design" tab from the Blogger Dashboard, within the "Page Elements" subcategory. From there click on on the widget labeled "Linkbar," to add your links. If you do not want to use the linkbar, simply leave this widget empty.
Setting Up Calendar-Style Post DateHave no fear, I promise setting up the post date is easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy. Go to Dashboard > Settings > Formatting. From the "Date Header Format" select "DD Month YYYY" style, (two digit day, name of month, four digit year with no commas) and then select "Save Settings." Presto, done!
Additional DetailsPosts published on the same day will display a blank post date because of the calendar style date set-up. At present there is no way around this, so remember to select a different date with the "Post Options," is publishing multiple posts on the same day. I have to do this myself with this blog actually.
If you do have access to your own image host, you might want to host the images at your own server. To do so download the images here and replace image URL's in the code with the corresponding URL's at your server. Images are also now included in the zip download for convenience. Feel free to contact me or leave a comment if you need assistance replacing the images.
