Sometimes, when I discover things that other people tell me about, I feel like I must be the last to know about these things. This is one of those. Did you know that you can download free templates from websites like http://www.oswd.org/ that you can use to make your own sites look like a professional designer designed it? Terri Brown told me about this site. She just recently used a template from this site for the new http://www.adeta.org/symposium website that looks wonderful. Especially compared to the site as I had started it. Of course using free templates to make my sites look better is why I am using Blogger.com.
So, this site is full of templates that generous people have shared with the public, you can download and use these templates on your websites, legally. The site claims to currently have over 2000 free designs. Terri told me that you do have to sift through them to find the best ones.
I am going to starting using them more. I use Dreamweaver for my websites and it comes with very few templates.
