40 Creative Personal Blog Web Designs for Inspiration

It has almost been a year while since we last published a round-up of our favorite personal blog designs, making this post well overdue. And what a difference a year makes! Different design techniques, new and refreshing ideas and with the further support for CSS3 properties, designers have been able to push their personal blog designs to even higher levels.

Having said that and putting all of the marvelous blog designs we have in this article aside, and based on our previous showcases, it does seem that the art of the personal blog is diminishing. Maybe with the feature rich services offered by Facebook, Twitter, Posterous, Tumblr and even WordPress.com, and with portfolio services like Carbonmade, Deviantart, and Behance the need for a personalized blog design is no longer a necessity. We do sincerely hope this is not the case.

Anyway, in this article, you will find 40 Kick-Ass personal blog designs for your web design inspiration.
