Designing template for Blogger Platform is not as difficult as it seems. This month i was very busy designing my template. While doing so i tried to replace the Newer and Older post links with their respective post titles.

While designing the template i was trying to keep the design minimal and functional at the same time. Its really a good experience designing my first template. While making some changes to my template i tried replacing Newer Older post links with their post titles.
