Today I stumbled upon (as opposed to StumbledUponÃ¢â€žÂ¢) two blog designs that I quite liked.
Drivl is a humour blog that’s sometimes crassly funny (this Best of Drivl list looks promising), and sometimes just crass. Its design–subtle greens and reds with plenty of attention to detail–really doesn’t match its content. Regardless, it feels super contemporary and I dig it.
I don’t know if Blogged Out’s design is a WordPress template, but it’s simple and elegant. I know the main banner is a pretty basic PhotoShop filter, but I like the use of faint gradients and plenty of white space around the text. I’m not particularly interested in blogs about blogging, but there are plenty of other people who are (as Seth Godin recently suggested).
