Okay, are you interested on adding this 3 column layout to your blog? Well, let's get started then..
Here are the steps you need to follow if you want to make a 3 column layout on your blog.
1. Login to Blogger
To begin this tutorial, now go to Blogger.com and Log in to your Blogger account using your own username and password you've already registered before. By putting the correct username and password, Blogger will automatically process to your Blogger account and land to the Dashboard page.

The Configuration of 3 Column Layout
Anyway, regarding the 3 column layout code i gave you earlier in this tutorial, there are something you need to know. Now see the code at number 3 of this tutorial.
As you can see at the CSS styling of 3 column layout above, there are some configurations you can set here. For example, now take a look at the value i've already marked with the red color above. By changing the value from black to any other colors, you can set the whole background color of the column. For example, edit the code black with white or yellow.
Now, see the CSS of 3 column layout below:
In the CSS above, i've already marked the important segmen with red color. The value white indicates the font color of the whole column. So if you want to change the color of the font or letter, you can simply edit the code white with any other colors, for example: red or blue.
Okay, that's it for now about adding new 3 column layout to Blogger. Hopefully, i can explore more about this kind of topic, so we'll see you around.
Good Day Bloggers!!
