These days, blogs are all over the place and they cover almost all areas you may think of. A really great thing about the ‘proliferation’ of blogs is that we can always find great design inspiration while browsing around them. They don’t need to be famous to have an amazing look, and we can notice that more and more people are designing great blogs! So here we will show you 30 creative blog designs to inspire you and also to give you several different perspectives from a common idea: deliver content to the web. I hope you like the selection, and leave a link showing us your blog design.

    Good list, but what is Gate Notes doing on it? The menu is “interesting”, but the small font and pretty much everything else is horrible.

    Great list of blogs. I believe Adii Rockstar has a new blog now, so the one you mentioned above is a bit outdated. The new site is http://adii.me/ which has a lot of great, practical advice for entrepreneurs!
