There are many different types of blogs: lifestyle blogs, photography blogs, company blogs, travel blogs, food blogs, fitness blogs, and more.

But the keys to a great blog design remain the same across categories:

  • Comfortable to Read — Blogs should have comfortable reading experience. Go with a clear (yet on-brand) font, an easy-to-read font size (16px-20px) and contain paragraphs to a conventional width (600px-800px).
  • Design Tells a Story — A good blog design is part of the stories you tell. A simple, austere finance blog can communicate seriousness and clarity. A whimsical, cartoonish parenting blog can suggest fun and relatability.
  • Keep It Simple — Keep your design conventional so that readers have an intuition about how to navigate. Don’t design something so unusual that it confuses readers! Use a typical blog structure (featured posts or recent posts at the top) and add a search bar, tags, and categories to make discovering blog posts easy.
