When setting up a new blog from blogger you are basically starting off with a completely blank canvas. There are a myriad of widgets to choose from as well as far-too-many attractive pieces of code to add to your blogger template. Unfortunately, some of these may or may not end up destroying all of your hard earned work - especially if you've forgotten to save your original template before hand.
Of course, it would be so much easier if there was some kind of mentor who you could trust to give you the correct advice and point you in the right direction. That's not me, nor do I want to be, but if you are looking for a smart looking live traffic feed graphic then this one from revolvermaps is my personal favourite. Furthermore, I have done all of the background work for you so if you want to add the live traffic feed graphic that is currently spinning at the top of this post, all you have to do is this:
1. Click on to the design heading in your dashboard.
2. Click onto the linked heading of whichever 'Add a Gadget' box you decide.
Job done and enjoy your fancy new live traffic feed.
