How to Show Blogger Post in Grid View with Thumbnail.

Recently I had shared a post on Adding Read More button with Thumbnails. And to the day I am gonna show how you can Display your Blogger Blog post in Gird View Style with Thumbnail. Actually both of these Post displaying techniques on the Blog homepage are almost the same. But the design and the code that you will have to use for this Gird view style is different. When you apply the Gird View style in your blog the posts of your Blog will show like the below example. Have a look at the Demo below.

If you are blogging on the Blogger platform then you can apply this design on your Blog. As a result of the application of this Gird View style on your blog, all the posts will be displayed as a thumbnail grid of the image on the homepage and archive pages. In the normal view style, you can only afford to display a few posts on the homepage. But in Gird view style you can display many posts in a gallery with thumbnail and post title. If your blogging on Wallpaper or Photo then this style can give the maximum result. Let’s see how to add this Gird view style on Blogger.
