How to add a three column footer widget to your blogger template?

I know there could be quite a few guides out there but honestly, I have revamp this and make it as easy as possible for you. Just follow these and you will be absolutely fine...I promise.

1. Head to Layout.
2. Always, always remember to backup your template. Although this is an error free guide, you can easily revert back if you don't like the new layout later.
3. Recheck if the backup is done.
4. Now, head over to Edit HTML and press either F3 or ctrl-F to open the search column.
5. Type in ]]></b:skin> and search for it. If you are not able to find it, remember to tick Expand Widget Template.
6. Next, copy and paste the code below right before ]]></b:skin>

/* -----   LOWER SECTION   ----- */
#lower {
       padding: 0px 0px 10px 0px;
       width: 100%;
#lower-wrapper {
       padding: 20px 0px 20px 0px;
       width: 960px;
#lowerbar-wrapper {
     border:1px solid #DEDEDE;
       float: left;
       margin: 0px 5px auto;
       padding-bottom: 20px; 
       width: 32%;        text-align: justify;
       line-height: 1.6em;
       word-wrap: break-word;
       overflow: hidden;
       .lowerbar {margin: 0; padding: 0;}
       .lowerbar .widget {margin: 0; padding: 10px 20px 0px 20px;}
.lowerbar h2 {
      margin: 0px 0px 10px 0px;
       padding: 3px 0px 3px 0px;
       text-align: left;
      font: bold 14px Arial, Tahoma, Verdana;
       border-bottom:3px solid #0084ce;
.lowerbar ul {
      margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px;
      padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px;
      list-style-type: none;
.lowerbar li {
      margin: 0px 0px 2px 0px;
      padding: 0px 0px 1px 0px;
      border-bottom: 1px dotted #ccc;
That was pretty easy right? Hold on! You there one more step and you are basically done. 

7. Now select the search option again and find for </body>. Copy and paste the code below right before the </body>.
<div id='lower'> 
<div id='lower-wrapper'> 
<div id='lowerbar-wrapper'> 
<b:section class='lowerbar' id='lowerbar1' preferred='yes'> 
<div id='lowerbar-wrapper'> 
<b:section class='lowerbar' id='lowerbar2' preferred='yes'> 
<div id='lowerbar-wrapper'> 
<b:section class='lowerbar' id='lowerbar3' preferred='yes'> 
<div style='clear: both;'/> 
</div> </div>

8. Last but not least, press save and you are basically all done.
9. For editing your widgets, head over to Layout and see the new gadget space available at the footer.
