Blogger Templates – How to Customize Them

Jack Spirko is one of my readers, and he has put together a great video showing the basics of how to customize a Blogger Template.
I believe he will be making more videos covering more advanced subjects, and I know lots of my readers use blogger so it might be of interest.
