Enticing Blog and Archived News Website Designs

With thousands of blog templates available for free online, nothing compares to a custom designed blog that will represent your brand and showcase your writing.

In the midst of redesigning TDC (stay posted for the redesign in upcoming weeks!) I had researched other blog designs and have gathered some of my favorites I came across to share with all of you. Below are 32 enticing blog and news websites with beautifully designed custom blogs.

    I’m in the process of redesigning my portfolio. It is a WordPress layout, so this is inspiring. I don’t know PHP but am reading a lot of tutorials on how to impliment my design and code it into WordPress. Hopefully I can make a list like this with it when it is done :-)

    Wish me luck!
