  1. @Simon: Wow.. Thanks.. One request though, can you change the name of the link to “Electric Itlog”?.. Itlog means “egg” in Filipino, and “Etlog” is a play on the spelling of itlog.. ^_^

  2. I love well-designed blogs! Giving your content a great-looking vehicle is something not overlooked by these fabulous blogs. I’d like to think mine’s pretty good lookin’ too ;)

  3. Great list… I too have been noticing all the identical blogs..

    I think its probably cause blogspot comes with a fairly limited default set of templates.

  4. I can barely believe it’s Blogspot blogs! These are clearly talented people and maybe I’m being cynical but why bother? Why bother showcasing your skills when it’s not marketable? I’m assuming people use blogger is because it’s free. I guess maybe they are downloadable themes to get backlinks but I also think that blogspot people might not be as sophisticated to use other themes other than the generic ones? That’s a gross assumption on my part but maybe I’m just brainwashed by the fact that people with their own hosting are more “serious”.

  5. I have to admit those are some great blogspot designs. I am suprised the people did not use a wordpress blog but i guess it shows how good some people are no matter who hosts blog or what type of platform it uses.

  6. Did they make own templates and code or what. I have to check more of the blogs out they are all good and i never thought you could make a blogspot blog look that good.

  7. LMax brings up a good point and I tend to agree. To me, people who use blogspot are newbies, just getting their feet wet. I’m guessing these pro blogspot blogs are guys who have stuck with them so long they’ve decided to become more professional but don’t want to make the switch to a new platform because they’d have to change url’s. But why do they bother? Unless you’re able to monetize them seems like a waste of time.

  8. I di not know you could make a blogspot blog look so good. Some of the sites are realy good designs. I have to look at them more and figure out what i can do.

  9. I did not know you could make a blogspot blog look so good. I thought you could not change design or template. I like firewalkers site and some of the others. They all are very good designs and are hard to tell that they are blogspot blogs.

  10. Those are all so pretty. I never even knew a blog could look so clean and creative. Do people make these themselves (ie are there free templates)?

  11. Those are some great designs for a blogspot blog. I have to look at them more and see how i can use some of the design ideas they use. Every site looks great and you never would think they where blogspot blogs.

  12. I love the Food for Design one, the color is nice. And the issue you discuss is even worse with the wordpress free blogs, when there are so many nice designs why use the plain old default one?

  13. Nice find. Everyone looks great. Makes me want to make new site after seeing how good they are. I have to see how they made some of the changes and if i want to try making own like they did.

  14. I had NO idea blogspot is this flexible. I switched to WordPress because I thought blogspot was hopeless when it comes to customization.

  15. I didn’t like these so much, I think because this post is 3 years old, a lot of things have changed. Nowadays to create a good design you need to spend more hours and put more work into it.

  16. having a great unique blogspot template is important not only to keep your blog looking interesting and professional… keeping your readers as readers. But it is also is important for your SEO efforts

  17. I like Simon So and All The Best website. I am a big fan of free-hand drawing and those colors are just what I love. Raw and not ‘technologized’.

    All The Best’s website seems like it resembles France. ‘Je t’aime!’

  18. This is a Blogspot blogs! All of a sudden I see that these are clearly talented people and maybe I’m being cynical but why bother? Why bother showcasing your skills when it’s not marketable? I’m assuming people use blogger is because it’s free. I guess maybe they are downloadable themes to get backlinks but I also think that blogspot people might not be as sophisticated to use other themes other than the generic ones?

  19. These are really inspiring! Too bad, some of the sites aren’t the same as the ones you’ve posted here. Some had changed. But nevertheless, it still boosts me up to make a cool blog design.

  20. Those are some great blogspot blogs, just wondering though why stick with the free hosting when at anytime your blog can be shut down for any reason and you have no control over it, I would take those design skills over to my own domain name ;0 Good stuff though regardless.

  21. Having a great unique blog spot template is important not only to keep your blog looking interesting and professional. Very simple and elegant. Thanks for sharing.

  22. Hi there, I m blogging with WordPress.org and I don t know if i should move to blogspot. Because I am a bit tired of having problems with the CPU and all that jazz….I don t think wordpress.com would be a solution for me for its lack of flexibility I can not use google adsense or any affiliation programmes…thank u for your advice :-)

  23. I’ve always thought about Blogspot blogs of being kind of amateurish… but these certainly are some amazing ones! Still, the website builder guy inside me screams “self-hosted blogs are the way to go!!!” :)
    Thanks for sharing this!

  24. I wonder if you can still use the design ideas with the new blogger set up. i think you would have to use old template and add code to it. i do not think you could do this with the new templates. i will have to see how i can do with the old templates on a test blog or if i have to stick to the stock templates now.

    I like noobs the most out of all of them.

  25. Some really nice inspiration here, especially like the first 5. Very crisp and clean, nothings over complicated which makes navigating a whole lot easier.

  26. Those are some nice designs. I do not know if you can change the design like that with the new templates or if you have to use the old set up. i still would not use blogger since the have been know to flag blogs and remove them because of thie program to check for spam. i think having your own blog and using wordpress still is better.
