How to run / design a website on Blogger

I needed to set up a new website (shameless plug: and wanted to try something new. I wanted to use a CMS this time and so I was looking at WordPress and Joomla. The idea was to take a blogging-platform, but strip it down to look and behave more like a "traditional" website with static pages. Then I thought of Blogger/Blogspot, because I've been using this platform for a while and I like it. My search was successful, I found this tutorial which outlines all the steps to "de-blog-ify" a Blogger-site and make it look like a "regular" site.
I followed the tutorial and it worked great. (I also found this one, which is not as complete, but still contains some nice tips, like how to create a contact-form for example)

As it turns out, there are some great websites out there making use of nothing but Blogger. Here are a few examples.
