Blogs have been around for years and haven’t really changed much in terms of design. Sure you’ll have your original blogs every now and again, but for the most part people follow the standard blog pattern.
Blogger is set out to change the way blogging is done by completely redesigning their platform. The new platform supports the latest web technologies, including HTLM5, CSS3 and AJAX and includes a couple of new features. New features include infinite scrolling, new layouts, speed and interactivity.
There are five new layouts which are probably the most noticeable change in the new Blogger update. While they are available for public view, they aren’t available for full use right now. One just has to had /view to the end of their Blogger URL to see the new templates in action. If positive feedback is received about the update, then Blogger will most likely release this as a permanent feature.
The five templates are Flipcard, Mosaic, Sidebar, Snapshot and Timeslide and all feature a different layout. Here’s a short little video showcasing the new templates on YouTube.
