When I started a blog with blogger platform I have used native blogger templates but that were not enough for my needs, so I have done customization on templates but seriously I was not aware of design that much at the time and it was the key to learn HTML and CSS for me, mostly I prefered w3schools to learn basic things then for a doubts I used stack overflow – independent Q&A programmers site for doubts and clarification.
So, learn basic HTML & CSS and also learn photoshop like tools also apply periodically in your site which help you in master design.
Yes, I’m proud to say still learning things on design.
Best To Have Development Skill
Good thing is I have purchased some wordpress and blogger themes from reputed theme shops but when I was apply those themes in my sites are reacted differently with design as well as functional, some of the things I really want to change that actually couldn’t do that since not clear about JS or PHP.
I have contacted theme developers for modification which was really not fair and they simply said “We cannot help you for customization”, then I realized its time learn these things too, now I’m handling modification with own codes.
If you are using WP don’t edit your codes directly better install XAMPP in your windows PC and configure wordpress then do modification and test them properly then apply in your live website.
This is my experience how motivated to learn coding. Moreover its essential to have technical skills one who wants to have success in blogging.
