Perhaps the biggest step up is the inclusion of hundreds of free background images licensed from iStockPhoto. We don't support the ability to upload your own (not yet, but on the roadmap), but with some CSS tweaking (which is natively supported in the new template designer by clicking on "advanced | add CSS") you can point to your own image. The images that are already included are beautiful - coupled with font choices, color palette switching and column widths, there are tens of thousands of variants that are available immediately. And did I mention that none of this costs Blogger users a penny?

Very proud of the team who put this together (note: I was a cheerleader on this, can take no credit for the awesome results). Siobhan, Pete, Talin, Sean, Jerry, Noah, David, Wongoo and Jungshik: kudos. If you're a Blogger user, head on over to Blogger in Draft to get started.
