Not many people blog anymore as much as they did a few years ago. Probably the micro blogging platforms are a reason why this is happening. However, those who actually write on blogs are careful with their blog’s design. The themes and designs on Tumblr are mostly ugly at the moment and quite slow on loading, while WordPress still kicks ass. This is why I want to focus on WordPress blog designs alone.
You probably got caught by the title of this article which says the way they should be done. While it may sound cheesy, it is actually true. Blog designs, because they have a simple purpose, must also have a simple and stylish design, without having useless elements that would clutter the content of the posts.
I want to mention something before you start checking out the WordPress blog designs that you have in this article. Do not mix blog designs with magazine designs. They are not the same thing. They are different in structure and purpose. And although the first example of this article is labelled as a magazine also, it isn’t.
