How to Hide or Show Blogger NavBar at Will

Why Remove the Blogger NavBar?

A lot of blogger consider the Blogger NavBar a necessary evil. The NavBar tells anyone that visit that the blog is hosted on Blogspot. Sometimes, this is not just necessary and the blogger will want to conceal the fact as much as possible. Well not as if it is a crime to be using a free hosted blog. We bloggers just want to have an option.

Beside that, sometimes the Blogger NavBar is a quick escape route from the blog as it provides easy navigation to an unknown blog with its Next Blog button. Cosidering the fact that it is placed at the beginning of the screen, it is eye-catching and tempts visitors to click away. So, I prefer it hidden.

Also, visitors tends to get embarrassed when they click the next blog button and they are taken to a blog that is full of unwholesome content. At this point, they don't remember that they were the one that navigated to such site, they simply blame their unfortunate adventure on the owner of the previous blog. I'll sure love to tell them they are dumb, but that will be a silly way to treat a Website Visitor that you want to keep loyal to your site. So that is one more reason to want to hide the NavBar.
