It seems as though everyone is tweaking, updating, or moving their blogs this week. I can't tell you how many times I've clicked out of Google Reader to look at a new blog design in the last few days.
Every time, I find myself wanting to do the same. At some point, I'd love to move the blog off Blogger to its own site, but installing a pretty Blogger template is also pretty tempting.
Have those of you who have invested a little more money and time into your blog design, did you debate the upgrades? Have you seen more traffic or better visit stats since the upgrade or were you just upgrading to do something fun and interesting with your site? Lastly, if you are happy with the template/hosting/design company you used, could you recommend it here?
