To Check or Test Responsiveness of your design. You need to any tool i suggest

Convert Your Current Blogger Template Into Responsive

Before continue with this process make sure that it requires basic knowledge about HTML5 and CSS3 because i only can guide about method and implementation is totally depend on your template codes means all the class and id vary from template to template so their is not fixed pattern to do this.
  •  First of all open your Blogger Blog >> Then Go to template Section
  • Click on Edit HTML and then paste below given meta code just below <head> tag.
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1"/>
  • Now Add Responsive Style sheets search for code which looks like ]]></b:skin>
  • Then paste paste responsive codes just above it
Here is the sample of all the Responsive CSS queries you have to paste them and then start add your current classes and id of css for responsiveness

@media screen and (max-width : 1280px) {

/* For Size Screen Less than 1280 ---*/


@media screen and (max-width : 1024px) {

/* For Size Screen Less than 1024 ---*/ 


@media screen and (max-width : 768px) {

/* For Size Screen Less than 768 ---*/ 


@media screen and (max-width : 640px) {

/* For Size Screen Less than 640 ---*/


@media screen and (max-width : 480px) {

/* For Size Screen Less than 480 ---*/


@media screen and (max-width : 320px) {

/* For Size Screen Less than 320 ---*/


Copy and paste the above format and replace /* CSS CODE HERE ---*/ for all device with css codes of your all classes and id of Header, Post Body, Sidebar, Footer and other section of your blog.

@media screen tag is for make css responsive for working different screen size

(max-width : **px) is for maximum width upto which codes will work just like if you place code in the section of 320 it means when the screen size is smaller than 320 then it will works and if screen size is larger than 320 then it will not works. 

Suppose if you place css in size 480 but not in 320 that means code place in 480 works from the Range of  Size (0 - 480) but if place any css in 320 then CSS codes of 480 will works in range (320 - 480). Only for same classes or ids if use then in both screen sizes.

Lets See an Example

@media screen and (max-width: ****px)

#main-wrapper  { width:100%; margin:0px auto; }
.header-wrapper {  width:100%;  }
#content {   margin-right:0; width:100%; float:left;  }
#sidebar {  display:none;  }
#footer-wrapper { display:none; }


Note:- Don't use same classes, ids and css shown in example. This is just to explain the format become for each media screen. In same way you have done for all sizes.

Use classes and ids currently used in your blogger template for Main Wrapper, Header section, Content, Sidebar, Footer and other small section and then add css codes.

Some Important CSS Queries For Responsiveness.

1. Always use Width in % instead of pixels just like Width:50%; or adjust percentage according to our requirement.

2. Always use em for size instead of px like 10em instead of 10px.

3. Margin:auto; for alignment into center and it using values for margin from left or right then use them in %

4. Display:none; to hide any particular section.

Important Note:- Sometimes while designing a responsive template we may feel that our codes are not working. Actually Responsive code will open works if your whole sections width should be in % because in case if your any section have fixed width then it will don't lets your code work to show responsiveness.

I hope you like this blogging tutorial for responsive designing. This article is just to explain how responsive codes work but if are not families will HTML and css then i only suggest you to hire any right guy like me :D to make your design responsive.
