1. Search for good template
Now search begins for good templates. Here is list of good blogger templates. blogger templates from bloggertemltes.com requires you to switch to classic mode in order to upload his templates.
2. Check the Demo in ateast two browsers
After you have decided the blogger template, please don't forget to check the selected demo provided atleast in two browsers like mozilla and internet explorer. This is because if you see most of the templates works and opens good in mozilla but not the case in internet explorer. If it opens good in both browsers the mark it and download.

6. At last Add placement
This is most important and time consuming process at least for me. My tactics and hint for google add placement is and try out and try out. This will come automatically, but this requires you to browse some good blogs around and see how they are placing the adds, well good bloggers also keep on changing their add placement and add format. Ya there are google heat maps, which guides you to know where to place adds, but as non-techie person this sounds more complicated with different heat maps suggestions. Recently I have updated this blog with add placement and optimized MY way, comment on your views also. I feel this is the best combination can come out in 3-colomn blogger.
