A blog skin is, put simply, is the appearance of your blog. Even if a blog has the most interesting content in the world, when readers can't make out the type because the font is too small or the colors offend the eye, they look elsewhere for their blog fix. The bad news is that most people aren't skilled at design nor do they have the technical skills needed to achieve a pleasing design. Fortunately, blog skins, also known as blog templates, are included as a blogging tool by most blog host services. If your host doesn't provide templates, or if you are looking for a wider selection, check out the huge selection of downloadable skins at BlogSkin.com. Skins are available on the honor system by making an online donation to defray hosting costs.
