You could provide information about your updates by adding this to the description page for your templates.

If you think you will be providing updates to templates, it would be a good idea to state this in your help file and suggest buyers visit the theme page periodically to check for these updates.

Hope this helps!

That’s really useful, Jeffrey, thanks for uploading it!

It’s certainly given me more ideas to ensure my help files are very comprehensive (which saves loads of time as buyers require much less support!).

My help files tend to be quite long, so I’ve been including these as searchable PDFs (with table of contents). These have been approved so far, though I was wondering if the PDF format is the most suitable format? I’d love some opinions about this :)

I’m glad you brought this up, Emfeha, as I was wondering the same thing myself!

I generally create Blogger themes, but thought it could be fun to create matching site templates in the same layout style. This would be great for businesses to create an online presence: the site template would act as the main site, while the blog/CMS could be used for company news, updates and the like.

I use Picasa Web Albums (free for up to 1GB of images, and seemingly no restrictions on bandwidth).

For me this is ideal as I use Blogger (among other Google apps) which is linked to my Picasa account.

Personally I agree that Xdodox’s idea of linking to the download page for a free font is the best way to go. This way you can acknowledge the hard work of a free font’s author, while enabling your buyers to use the same font.

DaFont.com is always my first stop when looking for a new font. Even though on occasion I may not find the exact style I’m looking for, this site links to the font authors’ websites too where (more often than not) you may find other great fonts to use too.

Also check out Fontspace.com and http://www.vtks.com.br/freefonts.html (for some awesome free grunge styles).

I was wondering if it would be okay to modify the Theme Template banners to include reference (possibly a logo) for Blogger?

My own sites are exclusively about Blogger, so it would be useful to generate interest and referrals to the Blogger templates available here.

The rasterized PSDs for TF would come in very useful for this if it is possible ;)

For what it’s worth, I am personally happy to give away 75% of earnings in exchange for promotion, file hosting, payment services, administration, and everything else Theme Forest provides for us as authors.

I create Blogger templates which are currently priced at $10 each. Before becoming an author here, I had seriously looked into the possibility of creating my own Premium Blogger template site, but soon realized just how much effort and cost was involved, even if I had attempted this as a group venture.

Right now I am a new author, and the demand for Blogger templates seems small compared to HTML and Wordpress themes. But I am content to design and look to the future of potential earnings much more than the hassle of selling themes from my own site! I agree too that it’s better to sell more templates at a lower price than to sell a few at a higher price. The team certainly have experience in this department, and so far I anticipate it will work out well for us all ;)

I saw this post in my feed reader earlier. Although I’ve never used Drupal myself, I was impressed by the sheer amount of resources presented in this article!

I’m pretty good with Blogger and would love to write up some posts for the site! I’ll send you an email shortly :)

Hey Amanda. Yep. Over the last two days, we’ve received a bunch of new blogger templates – mostly from the same person. :)

Yea, I noticed. And now two more from me :)

I hope to upload a few more over the next few weeks as I’ve had time to design them, and have also emailed some of my Blogger-designing friends to let them know about ThemeForest.

As yet, it seems very few Blogger users are aware that free themes are available for purchase (and can be uploaded for sale), though I imagine word will get around soon.

If there’s enough supply/demand, would you consider a dedicated section for Blogger in the future?
