  4. It's not a post as your status of blog. Every minimal knowledged blogger can easily identify this option on draft. Please don't reduce the status of your site by yourself by posting this type of cheap posts.

  17. To those who say that this is a "cheap trick"... Dude, I'm glad to hear you were born already enlightened into the ways of Blogger, but some of us did not have such luck. I've been using the site for a couple of years now but I have no knowledge whatsoever about the "cheap tricks" because, frankly, it wasn't my main focus on there. So I found this advice quite useful. Come off your high horse and if you don't like it, don't read it.

    And thanks for the article. The "so-and-so" images Blogger had to offer were driving me insane :))

  19. I'd love to change my background this way, but on the draft page (and my own dashboard, too), I'm getting this message under both "Background Image" and "Main Color Theme" -

    Not Applicable for this Template

    I'm using a Rounders template, the standard blue. What gives?
