I must admit, I loved Blogger's Dynamic Views when I first saw it a few weeks back. I made a mental note to try it out on my personal blog, but did not get around to it until this weekend. There were three tempt-lates that tempted me the most (...pun definitely intended...).
It made my content look amazing! But it didn't let me customize anything on the blog. I couldn't even control the background color!
I enjoyed my widgets, I enjoyed adding my personal touches to my blog. And though my layout is simpler than the dynamic views, I think I will keep my customizations - thank you. Blogger, you almost had me though - I loved how my content looked on your templates. I just don't think I want to give up all control of my blog's design.
If Blogger can find a way to combine dynamic views with widgets and customization - I will probably jump on board in a heartbeat. But for now, I am content with my blog's look and feel - and will look forward to the next version of dynamic views.
