26 Inspiring Examples of Blogs In 2020

Last Updated September 9 2020

Written By Steve Benjamins

Blogging is story-telling. A good blog design becomes a part of the stories you tell. A simple, austere tech blog can communicate seriousness and clarity. A whimsical, cartoonish parenting blog suggests fun and relatability.

The storytelling quality of a design should never obscure or get in the way of reading the blog. A good blog design tells a story— but is also be conventional and makes reading comfortable (don’t design something so unusual that it confuses readers!). This is a collection of 26 blogs— spanning multiple industries— that I believe are good examples of good blog designs.
