12 Gorgeous Blog Design Examples to Inspire Your New Blog

Who would have that thought that blogging would still be a thing in this day and age?

While there is room to debate about the validity and value of starting a blog so late in the game, there is no denying that blogging is still a fantastic way to grow your brandand attract customers to your business.

I have personally used my own blog to build my web design business, propelling RapidWebLaunch into its most profitable year yet in 2018. And even further growth in 2019.

That being said, there is no denying that blogging is hard work. It has also never been more competitive.

So, to stand out from the competition, your blog design needs to be fantastic.

And I’m not just talking about attractive videos, professional photo shoots and pretty little custom graphics. Your blog design needs to be effective.

Clear calls to action, enticing copy, a wonderful user experience and ultra-fast loading speeds are the name of the blogging game these days.
