50 Fabulous Blog Designs

I'm always thinking about redesigning my blog, in the same way that I'm always thinking of redecorating or rearranging my home. It's kind of a compulsion for me, and I really wish I had gone to school for interior design rather than art education. Even when I was a kid, my main Barbie play involved setting up their elaborate pad rather than getting gussied up for a date with Ken (but of course I did cut lots of their hair, despite my mom's warnings).

Since I don't have the time to redesign this blog again (and I don't want to confuse my readers by doing it so soon after the July rehab) and I don't have the money to pay someone more creative to do it, I thought I'd just drool over this list of 50 Beautiful Blog Designs from Smashing Magazine.

These are my favorites:
Suddenly I feel pretty embarrassed about my digs here.

Thanks to my hubby for bringing this to my attention: see you DO care about my blogging skills!

What's your favorite blog design?


  1. hey hey kathleen! im really surprised and happy that my blog is one of your favorites :-) thank you !!!! stephanie

  2. I love your Friday reviews--I need to check that one. I would love to redo my blog, but don't have the money.

  3. I saw you entered to win a cool coffee maker, I did too :)I also read that you have a new baby and can't have too much caffeine...I suggest splitting your coffee half regular half decaf!

    I hope you don't mind but I wanted to tell you about my giveaway-FREE COFFEE...would go great with that new coffee maker!

    To celebrate the launching of my very own online coffee shop I am giving away 1 pound of coffee every Friday during October. To enter visit:

  4. Those are some great ones! I need to think about a little makeover...

  5. Thanks for entering the giveaway :)

  6. I received the headband. It's perfect! Thank you 100 times over!!!!

  7. Your blog looks gorgeous! No need to be envious of these other designs. I need to dig in and spruce mine up. First I need to figure out how to make my header actually fit. Second I need to jazz it up. I'm going to check out the site you suggested!

  8. We are of such kindred spirit. I wish I had a different blog design for each day of the week.
    We dress according to the mood we're in so why not dress our blogs accordingly? I think someone needs to come up with a "mood design" like mood rings that would change according to mood.
    Your design is perfect for Katydid and Kid although I understand the desire for change.

  9. Hi,
    I really like your blog design. Especially the colors! I hope you keep it for awhile, I think it is unique and beautiful.

  10. I'm always wanting to change mine up, i do probably once a year. I'm too busy to even consider it now though. I do like the two you posted though, very nice!


I'm a good listener...comment away!
