Customizing our Blogger blogs is now easier than ever. Aside from the hundreds of pre-made templates available for us to simply upload to our sites, there are innumerable tutorials helping us design more beautiful and interesting sites. Yet some Blogger users look beyond these simpler design features to construct stunning original Blogger designs.

Over at We Love Blogger, you can find a daily showcase of inspiring Blogger-based designs. Here are the cream of the crop: more than 80 Blogger-powered blogs of unusual design or outstanding quality, provided as a feast of inspiration for your own projects.

My personal site, and truly an experiment in the possibilities of Blogger-design! As I begin to upload new posts, you'll notice each post will be presented in a completely different style (background, layout, fonts... everything!). It is difficult to maintain, but as I try out new things I'll be sure to post about them here!


Opus Independents



This last example is truly my favorite! The design is flash-based (and so not hosted by Blogger's servers) yet the core content (news, NowThen and Wordlife sections) are generated through the Opus Independent network of Blogger-powered sites. Site programming by Switchcode.

More please!

I love to showcase beautiful and original Blogger powered designs in posts such as this and also on the dedicated Blogger showcase site, We Love Blogger. If you've designed a gorgeous, original Blogger design (or have discovered an awesome website powered by Blogger) then please let me know by submitting your site to the directory.
