FSK Asks - Should I Change My Blogger Template?

Someone recently told me that the Blogger template I am using is no good. I should switch templates.

Do you think I should switch Blogger templates? If you wish to vote in this survey, please leave a comment in response to this post.

If you think I should switch templates, be sure to nominate a replacement template. There are 3rd party templates I can use, other than those officially sponsored by Blogger.

The primary defect of my current template is that it does NOT automatically resize the width of the screen. If you do a "view source" on my blog, you'll see I have a fixed with of 700 pixels. If you are browsing in a wider window, you will NOT see the benefits of making your window wider.

Other Blogger templates automatically resize the text when the browser window widens. Should I switch to such a template? Is it worth changing?

If you are reading my blog through the RSS feed, then it's irrelevant which template I use. (I really should start using FeedBurner to track my RSS feed.)

I am NOT considering switching to WordPress or another service at this time. I am overall satisfied with Blogger and its UI. Blogger gives me the ability to directly edit the html of my template and my posts, which is more than enough for my needs. If I start Blogging for serious income, then I might consider switching to a self-hosted blog. Blogger is more than enough for an "amateur" blogger.

I certainly wouldn't say it's "no good". The template may be overused, but that's certainly not because it's no good.
